UX Speed Dating is a monthly event where UX professionals get to present a user test to three users for in-person response. It's formatted like a speed dating event where designers sit stationary and the users will rotate to three tests every 20 minutes. Users get swag provided by the participating designers and are entered to win a grand-prize (see below) presented at the end of the event.
