The early bird tickets for CanUX 2017 will go on sale this Saturday

Because of high demand, these tickets usually sell in a matter of hours, so check our tickets page early and often on Saturday if you want to purchase tickets at the lowest price.
Two of our keynotes have already been revealed
We’ve already begun revealing the CanUX lineup for 2017, and we’re thrilled to announce that the closing keynote for this year’s edition will be Mule Design founder and design director Mike Monteiro. Mike is an iconic speaker on the international design conference circuit and will close out the ceremonies on Sunday, November 5th. Our second keynote in 2017 is robot wizard and renowned interaction design pioneer Dan Saffer. Mike and Dan will fly in from San Francisco, and because both of them have written multiple books about design, we will give away a few copies of their latest musings during CanUX.
The 2017 lineup is shaping up
While most of our lineup is not yet public, we’ve already announced a few other speakers for our 2017 edition. We’re thrilled to have Los Angeles-based USC professor and author of the best selling O’Reilly book ‘UX Strategy’ Jaime Levy on the CanUX stage this year. She will talk about UX strategy in the context of a case study about the work she’s done with USC students at famed transportation startup Hyperloop. She will be joined by BBC Director of User Experience Dan Ramsden, who will make the trek to CanUX all the way from the UK, and Information Architecture Institute president Dan Klyn, who has just delivered the closing keynote at the 2017 IA Summit in Vancouver this past week. Renowned Boston-based researcher Meena Kothandaraman will return this year (she will also deliver the closing keynote at the UXPA International conference this year in Toronto in June) and she will be joined by her Twig+Fish colleague Zarla Ludin. Toronto-based service designer extraordinaire Linn Vizard will also make her debut at CanUX in 2017, alongside many other amazing speakers who will be made public over the next little while. Please check our program page and stay tuned to our twitter account @canuxconf for more announcements in the next few months.
The CanUX workshops are back in 2017

This year we’ll have a few half day workshops and we’ll pilot a full-day workshop as well on Friday, Nov 3rd.
