Hello fellow Designers, I received this notification about a conference taking place in London and thought of sharing the info with you. CREATE 200824-25 June 2008, British Computer Society, Covent Garden, Londonhttp://www.cs.mdx.ac.uk/research/idc/create2008/ A parallel question: I know that the life cost in London is really high, but don't you think the price of attendance is a bit over the charts? Member (ES and BCS): £235.00 (£200 plus vat) Non-Member: £264.38 (£225 plus vat) <-- that's how much I'm going to pay if I attend the 2-day event.Student Member: £70.50 (£60 plus vat) I know this isn't the Nielsen Norman Usability Week (so expensive I'm not even going to remind you the numbers), but do you know if CREATE 2008 is worth the money? I'm asking because I'll probably be in London that week for job interviews, and this conference seems like an interesting opportunity to learn some more about UX... Cheers, let me know your thoughts, Tiago Marques

Hi Tiego,
Regarding the cost - it is not over the top for this type of conference, actually it is more affordable than most conferences in the US and UK.

I agree with Mags. £265 or $500 US for a 2-day conference is actually
pretty reasonable. For points of comparison, other 2 day conferences:

TED: $6000 US

Design Strategy: $3000 US

GEL 2008: $2000 US

Interaction08: $600 US

Reboot10: 250 Euro
