What we're about

We’re a casual and welcoming community of User Experience (UX) professionals, founded in 2013 by people who just wanted to relax and talk about design over a cold beer.

We organize events in and around Antwerp and Brussels to connect UX professionals and encourage continuous learning. We meet to exchange ideas, informally network, and grow together through all stages of our careers.

We’re run by a small group of dedicated volunteers and the generosity of speakers, local sponsors and hosts, and enthusiastic members like you!

Look for these types of events:
