Drawing on the success of previous events in association with Leeds Digital Festival LION+MASON decided to host another UX afternoon seminar in Leeds. Once again we were aiming for a relaxed and informal experience with the chance to hear from industry experts sharing their own digital challenges, solutions and tips for like minded attendees.
Collaborating with Leeds Building Society again we had planned to use their event space however, a last minute incident meant we had to change the venue within 24 hours of going live!
The Warehouse Leeds came to our rescue and although visitors may have been more familiar with attending a music gig there it ended up being the perfect setting. The seating, lighting, and sound created an ideal ambience for the growing local design community we are hoping to inspire.
Our Managing Director, Andy Curry took to the unexpected stage and welcomed guests with his natural hosting skills and infectious enthusiasm for the topics covered.

Following the engaging and educational talks we held a Q&A panel session with the experts joined by David Davies, Senior Accessibility Consultant/UX Designer at Leeds Building Society.
Andy Curry asked some burning questions touching on AI Tools, Content Design, Accessibility and Ethical Considerations. Questions were then opened up to the audience and it was clear to see the appetite in the room for learning and development in their professional disciplines. This enthusiasm continued into the networking space where further stories were shared and connections made.
As the buzz and community for all things ‘digital experience’ continues to inspire and grow we are continuing our series of short evening DX Shots events in Leeds with the next one being on 7th December at Clockwise Greek Street and spaces can be reserved here DX Shots Dec 23.
