Collaborate Bristol 2017 - Call for speakers!

Well this is exciting, isn’t it?! We’re delighted to launch this year’s instalment of Collaborate Bristol on June 23 at the Watershed!

For those unfamiliar with Collaborate Bristol, it’s the South West’s leading UX, design and IA conference. We bring in the leading thinkers in their fields from all corners of the globe to deliver ground breaking talks, host unrivalled networking opportunities and fly the flag for digital design in the South West.

For those in the know, you may have noticed a couple of changes – first of all, we’ve moved to June! This way, after the talks we can network with a nice cocktail overlooking Bristol’s historic harbour side on the balcony of our brand-new venue – the Watershed! Sounds lovely, right?
