The 6th UX Awards Summit is a two-day and evening immersive event at SAP in sunny Palo Alto CA, in the heart of Silicon Valley and just outside San Francisco.
By popular request, our new event format allows more time to hear talks from all judges, board members and finalists, plus meet fellow senior UX and design leaders. SAP’s venue offers professional A/V, on-site catering, plenty of rooms, a leafy courtyard, and a stunning roof deck with views of the surrounding hills– perfect for our sunset receptions.
Don’t wait to get your tickets!
Capacity is limited to just 300 people, and the last UX Awards in 2015 sold out weeks in advance. Prices Rise August 1, September 1 and October 1 2017, if still available

- · We recommend booking a hotel or AirBNB in nearby Palo Alto for easiest access. San Francisco and San Jose are each about 1/2 hour – 1 hour away by car, depending on traffic. We recommend booking as early as possible, as Palo Alto and San Francisco are some of the most expensive areas in the country.
- · SAP’s venue in Palo Alto is not available by public transit, but it is very easy to use Uber, Lyft or other ridesharing services. You can also take an Uber or Lyft from nearby Caltrain stations. Caltrain trains connect San Francisco and San Jose to Palo Alto and run roughly every 20 minutes- hourly, depending on the time of day.
- · San Francisco International (SFO) is the closest airport, but you can also consider flying into San Jose (SJC)
