Adaptive Path is an experience design firm that helps companies create products and services that provide an exceptional user experience for their customers. They have served an impressive list of clients such as: Twitter, Snapfish, Carnival Cruises, Wells Fargo, National Gallery of Art, Intel, PBS, eBay, Nike and more. Now iPad users have a chance to take away some tips and tools for their own use through the new Adaptive Path iPad app, which is unbelievably available for free. Not only does Adaptive Path consult with individual companies, they also hold a couple of fascinating conferences each year focusing on customer experience through the user experience (UX) and the managing experience (MX). These conferences bring in some well-known speakers on many different topics to lead workshops and to give keynote presentations. The cost for these conferences is around $2,500 each, but you will find many videos from the speakers in their new app. Here are descriptions of the UX and MX conferences (from Adaptive Path): UX Week is the premier user experience conference. With a mix of inspiring talks from recognized thought leaders and hands-on workshops delivering takeaway skills, this event delivers for user experience professionals at all levels - directors, managers, and practitioners. MX: Managing Experience is a conference for people who take a leadership role in guiding better experiences into the world. MX serves up examples to learn from and approaches to adopt that can help you lead your organization toward investing in or improving your customer experience on the web, mobile, and more.
