About The Event

Experience Designer Fiona Slocombe joins UX Gatherings to speak about her work with Pause Fest 2017, and the process she used to co-design the festival experience.

Fiona will speak about the work she did with the audience, speakers, staff and exhibitors to discover what people value about Pause Fest. She will then deep dive into how they designed Pause Fest 2017, and what they needed to improve, remove and create to produce a valuable festival experience.
