Where do I pick my registration badge?

Attendees at the Check-in Desk (UXLx 2023)

You can pick-up your badge at the Check-in Desk on the day of your Ticket.

Check-in opens at 8:00 every day. Workshops/talks start at 9:00. We advise you to come a bit early to pick up your badge and Welcome Pack, take a cup of coffee and get acquainted with the venue before the workshop starts.

Are the workshops/talks recorded and slides shared?

Workshops at UXLx are meant to be a safe space for attendees to collaborate and feel free to share thoughts and experiences. For that reason they are not recorded.

When speakers give us permission, we share the session slides with those who attended the workshop on the days after the conference.

Talks are recorded. We’ll start releasing the videos from the Talks Day on our UXLx Videos page, gradually, when we launch the next UXLx event. We also share the talk slides when speakers share them with us and give their permission to do so.

Where’s the venue located and how to get there?

The FIL Meeting Centre is located right in the heart of the most recently renovated Lisbon Eastern Business District — Parque das Nações (Nation’s Park) — and overlooks the beautiful Tagus river.

It’s easily accessible by public transportation. If you’re staying in the city centre you can reach the venue in around 20 minutes by metro. If you’re staying in Parque das Nações you’re probably within a short walk.

You’ll find the surroundings quite enjoyable. During the lunch break you can soak up the sun in the gardens nearby or even stretch your legs with a stroll along the river. Other attractions include one of the largest aquariums in the world, Europe’s second longest bridge , a cable car, a shopping centre, a casino, and plenty of restaurant options.

🧳 If you’re coming straight from the airport on the fist day or if you’re leaving straight to the airport on the last day you can comfortably leave your bags in our cloakroom.

How can I connect with other UXLxers during the conference?

One of the things that makes UXLx such a unique experience is bringing together peers from dozens of countries all around the world (44 countries in 2023!). This means people from a wide range of fields and dimensions, different backgrounds and experiences. There are plenty of networking opportunities during the day, as well as at the side events.

  • During the conference we have several breaks throughout the day where you can connect with everyone.
  • The workshops are often hands-on so you’ll most likely find yourself collaborating in small groups.
  • We host a Welcome Party and an After Party which are great places to share ideas and make connections with peers, in a more relaxed setting (over drinks and nibbles).

What about the speakers?

Our speakers are always willing to chat so they also mingle with attendees outside sessions. We encourage our speakers to stay for the whole event and join our networking sessions, so there’s always the opportunity to have one-on-one chats with them.

Who can attend the Welcome and After Parties?

UXLx After Party (2023 and 2022)

Everyone holding a UXLx 2024 Ticket! Even if you don’t attend UXLx on the first day, you can still join us at the party. You’ll get the location details on the printed programme and on your e-mail. Parties don’t require any registration.

It’s also my first time in Lisbon. Do you have any tips?

Exploring Lisbon will definitely be the cherry on top your perfect conference experience. Lisbon is a budget-friendly city, with quite affordable price for food, drink, public transportation, and accommodation. It’s also one of the safest European capitals. In May, you’ll likely have sunny days — perfect for a stroll around downtown or enjoy the sunset in one of the viewpoints. You’ll see there’s a lot to discover — from music, to culture, history and delicious gastronomy.

What’s the weather like in late May?

You can expect bright sunny days and a warm temperature, around 22ºC.

However the evenings might get a bit chilly (13ºC) so you better pack some warmer clothes also. UV levels are normally quite high so don’t forget the sunscreen.
