What are UXPH events like?

UXPH organizes free monthly meetups all around Metro Manila (and soon outside of it). Meetups range from talks, panels, workshops, or social events focused on design, research, entrepreneurship, and project management. These events are hosted at various sponsor venues or held remotely online.

Our events are casual and open to everyone anyone interested in learning. Come out and meet the community!

When and where do you host events?

We host monthly meetups at various venues throughout Metro Manila. Details are announced online on our social media outlets and on our website a few weeks before the events take place.

Does it cost anything to attend an event?

Our community events are free to attend unless otherwise stated. You will need to RSVP to the event online when we announce their details. Our conferences are paid, and by ticket purchase only.

What's included in an event?

You can always expect to learn something new and network with some friendly faces at a UXPH event. Our events are volunteer-driven and sponsored by companies who want to contribute to our community. As such, there are often refreshments or snacks provided for attendees by our sponsors, but it varies per event and is limited.

Can I just walk in or bring a +1 to a UXPH event?

No, you must RSVP online to our event page for each event unless otherwise stated. This is often for security and venue purposes, and to ensure we have enough space for everyone to have a comfortable time at our event.

Do you provide certificates for attending UXPH events?

UXPH does NOT provide certificates of attendance to our free community events as these are not considered formal training sessions. We do provide certificates of attendance for our conferences, however. Instructions are given at conference end, and only to those who have purchased a ticket.

Who can be a part of the UXPH team?
