We are sad to announce that there will be no UX Challenge at Svalbard
in October 2009.
It seems like the financial crisis has hit our target group harder
than we hoped for. Indeed we have received a lot of feedback on the
project, where people tell us that they love the idea, but they have
a hard time finding the necessary resources to attend.
At Svalbard we need 200 participants in order to break even, and we
don't seem to be able to recruit that many this year.
However, we will not let this idea die. We strongly believe in the
concept and that we actually can contribute and use our skills for
something good (and learn a lot while meeting lots of interesting
people doing so).
Our next step is to find out the exact reasons why too few people
tried to qualify. Was it solely due to the financial crisis? The
location, or the concept? The fact that we asked people to send in a
presentation or a video? We hope these questions will be answered in
the 2 minutes questionnaire that we kindly ask you to submit: http://web.refleks.com/?surveyid=36344
When the results are analysed we will find out how to postpone this
We are sorry for having to announce this.
Warm regards from the cold North,
The UX Challenge team
Jostein, Lillian, Andreas and Even
