hi all,
new year has started and I'd like to have an overview on the must-be
conferences so that I can plan my partecipations a little bit.
And since this is the best place to ask...well, i'm asking :D

what are in your opinion the conferences we should not miss and why?

thanks all,
Pietro Desiato

The obvious quick answer is Interactions09 http://interactions09.ixda.org
.

Why? It's a fantastic conference that crosses boundaries of physical
and software product design. There are great speakers. And Vancouver
is beautiful.

I'm also considering:
UX London — also great speakers, relevant topics, and well, London.
UIE — Jared and UIE always put on a great conference http://www.uie.com/events/
UIE Web App Summit — if you're working on applications, it's a great
conference to attend Web App Summit
Adaptive Path UX Conferences — also great subject matter and speakers.

SxSW is a great conference if you're looking primarily for a social
scene.

In theory, theory and practice are the same.
In practice, they are not.

Webstock <http://www.webstock.org.nz>

It's a wonderful event. New Zealand in summer is fantastic for a
combined holiday/conference experience. And the line-up of speakers is
as good as you'll get anywhere:

Hi Pietro,

If you're looking for anything mobile, I would highly recommend MEX
( http://www.pmn.co.uk/mex/ ).

Hi Pietro,

for myself, at a minimum - SXSW, IA Summit, UXLondon, Oz-IA, Web Directions
South, and Web Directions Government here in Canberra. The rest subject to
availability and personal circumstance :)

I'd like to be getting to Webstock in NZ next month - there are several
really good people speaking and several good friends going - given I'm in
the US for a lot of March I need to watch my spending, but it is a hard
decision.

Best regards, Andrew
