Who should attend?
This conference directly benefits marketers, designers and researchers who
seek to integrate sustainability in branding, product design and messaging
in an authentic way. Consumers increasingly consider sustainability in
their checkout (or clickthrough) decisions and attach value to brands and
experiences that win on intuitive, engaging design *and* social
responsibility. This event is a chance to hear directly from successful
pioneers in the field and incorporate their ideas and actions into practice.
If your employer isn't yet focused on sustainability and you want to lead
the way, or if you want to work for a company that already fights the good
fight, this event represents a great networking opportunity. But seats are
limited, so mark November 12th in your calendar and register at http://nycupa.org/WorldUsabilityDay now.
