[USPRwire, Tue Nov 04 2014] Time has proven that the most successful products, services and technologies are often the most engaging. Companies are striving more than ever to provide an engaging experience to their customers at every interaction. How can user experience professionals help in this arena? This year World Usability Day is about exploring the idea of engagement and what user experience professionals can bring to the table.
Join the Cleveland Chapter of User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA CLE) as we explore Engagement in Usability at World Usability Day 2014. On November 13, 2014, UXPA CLE will host World Usability Day at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The event will include a full day of informative sessions, networking, user experience vendor booths, food, and fun. World Usability Day is celebrated in more than 40 countries around the world. This is the tenth year that UXPA CLE has hosted a World Usability Day event.
