Today, UXRconf officially announced that they are cancelling their in-person event and replacing it with a fully remote conference: UXRconf Anywhere.

Lookback has been a proud sponsor of the UXRconf since the very first conference, and this year we are fortunate enough to be able to support the conference as title sponsor. 

There is a very simple reason for this unbroken commitment. The team behind the conference is amazing. They care deeply about the right things, they leverage their UXR skills to make sure they understand what users need, and they keep creating very valuable, human-centered, and accessible experiences for the global UX research community. 

Today’s announcement to go fully remote in response to the COVID-19 pandemic is just another great decision from the UXRConf team. We agree with every aspect of their analysis that led up to the decision, and we are really excited about their ambitious and creative plan for the remote conference. 

These are challenging times, but it is also an opportunity to rethink how we do things like conferences. We are very much looking forward to working with the UXRConf team in developing this new experience and we hope to see you all at Anywhere this summer! 

All the best and we hope everyone stays healthy and safe, 

Henrik and the Lookback team
