Welcome to Dublin UX, this July we are supported by Service Design Network as we jointly host our biggest free summer event yet.

We have 7 speakers, 3 keynotes, 2 flash talks and 1 panel discussion covering two core topics - design systems and circular design. With such a packed bill, we open our doors a little earlier (5:45pm) and finish a little later (9:15pm).

We are proud to announce Zendesk as our sponsor and host in July. We will host the event at the Zendesk office on 55 Charlemont Place, Dublin 2. You must have a confirmed spot, providing your complete name to gain entry. We will be validating the attendee list and reserve the right to change your RSVP if it’s incomplete. Please arrive early as registration may take a little longer than usual. We have 200 seats to fill and will close RSVPs 24 hours before the event. Please only RSVP if you know you can attend.

We will have food and drinks before the event and drinks during the interval.

RSVP to confirm your attendance. As we have strict numbers on the night, a confirmed spot will be required. Each guest will need to RSVP separately. For building security, we will require your full name when registering. RSVPs will be shut down 24 hours in advance, it will not be possible to exchange your spot or free it up after this point, so please update well in advance if you know you can not make it to give another member a chance.

Due to no-shows we do over allocate tickets. Please arrive early to avoid any disappointment.
