Onsite Conference Volunteers

UXPA conferences are made possible through the efforts of people who care about promoting user experience - and your contribution can help make the UXPA 2014 conference in London the leading forum for the exchange of ideas among UX practitioners.

Onsite conference volunteers must be available throughout the entire conference, 21- 24, July, 2014 and contribute 18-21 hours of service during that time. The success of volunteers in the past is based on communication, so attendance is mandatory at volunteer meetings during the conference.

Potential volunteer assignments include staffing the information booth, helping at the registration desk, or assisting session chairs and tutorial instructors. See the information below for Frequently Asked Questions about Onsite Conference Volunteers.
