An Event Apart - Denver

An Event Apart - Denver

An Event Apart Denver is three days of intense focus on digital design, UX, and more. If you care about creating the best possible experiences for the people who use your work, and crave concentrated time to level up your skills in the company of your peers, An Event Apart is the conference you’ve been waiting for.

What makes this so special?

Most of our events have 12 great speakers, but Denver: Special Edition will feature 18 fabulous speakers in three days. You’ll leave with tons of takeaways, insights, and practical applications for your work. We’ll have a live, in-person recording of the User Defenders podcast on our stage. In addition, we’ll have special benefits for Denver attendees, which we’ll share once all the pieces are in place.

Not to mention—it’s Denver! We’ve always wanted to come to the Mile-High City, and at last the dream has come true. Join us for three jam-packed days of design and UX awesomeness!
