UXistanbul turns into a Platform in its 8th year!

We will have a festival-like conference experience with a Platform that will stay alive for 2 weeks in 11-22 April 2022. With participants from different cities of the world and content accessible at any time, we will remove the limits of time and space.


On a special Platform designed for UXistanbul, participants will be able to access content in different formats at any time for 2 weeks. Masterclasses from subject experts, interviews with design leaders, enjoyable programs on UXtube… will be waiting on the UXistanbul Platform.

Live Broadcasts

Of course, we will not always be apart, there will be live broadcasts during these 2 weeks. We will host experience design leaders from the world’s leading companies, listen to them live and ask our questions. Some of our precious keynotes are already in place!


As this year’s theme, we’ll be questioning whether we can go beyond human-centered design by covering topics such as Human Centricity, AI & Ethics, People & Planet, Human-Computer Interaction, User Experience, Design Research, Accessibility and more.

All other details to be announced very soon. Follow us and keep an eye on updates!


Since we started to organize UXistanbul Conference in 2015, there is a challenge that we have always considered: “How might we make the conference experience independent of space and time?”

This year we found a solution for that! As soon as you get your entrance ticket, you can start your conference experience thanks to the possibilities below:

First, you’ll be able to enter the UX Metaverse, where you’ll find take-aways from previous conferences, learn UX best practices, meet with UX experts and more by connecting with your PC, mobile or VR glasses.

You can also jump into Discord channel where UX community gathers and start communicating with mentors from UXservices and all other participants.


Our main goal has always been to explore the most significant and trendy concepts of the time, inspire the attendees and transcend ourselves every year for 7 years. We hosted almost 150 respective speakers in total worldwide, from companies like Google, Facebook, Amazon, IBM, Apple, YouTube, Twitter, Microsoft, and more.

At UXistanbul 2022, UX leaders and managers of the world’s most important companies will continue to share their latest practices regarding their research, UX design and testing processes. For example, we will experience Netflix not on our TVs but on UXistanbul stage!


We think everyone working in UX field has exciting experiences to share with the community. In addition, we believe that conferences are fantastic mediums where participation not only means to listen but also to share.

You can create an article about your most exciting experiences and share them with thousands of UXistanbul participants, and if you wish, you can even turn this experience into an unforgettable memory with a presentation you will make to your colleagues from different cities of the world.


Learning is as important as being inspired at conferences. But it should be aligned with the pill-like practical learning tradition of conferences. In order to achieve this, we have designed short but powerful masterclass trainings for you with the world’s leading UX experts.

We think that the certificate you will get at the end of the conference is an important indicator of the knowledge gained from the world’s most important companies and subject matter experts.


The founders and teams of the world’s famous Metaverse projects will hold talks and panels on related topics such as DAO, Web 3.0, Blockchain, Avatars, Play-to-Earn Games and NFT.

User-Centered Experiences started to evolve into User-Owned Experiences with our new universe, Metaverse. We can say that this revolution in the field of “experience” affects and includes the UX community most. In these days when we are redefining “the user” and bringing online experiences to 3-dimension, we want to discuss all these topics with experts and the community to create the best experiences of the future.
