Presentation Talk

We've all heard it: Asia is the future of technology. Over the past few decades, the Asian region has exploded in technological growth from cell phone hardware to call centers to software shops. In the Philippines, BPO Industries have went from .075% of GDP in 2000 to 5.4% of GDP in 2012. It is expected to hit almost 10% of GDP in 2017! But where does UX fit into the conversation? In this presentation, Ben Kim from Apical Design will share his thoughts on the State of UX in Asia. He will draw from his experiences hosting several lectures in the region and multiple first-hand interviews with Asian designers. By the end, attendees will have a better understanding of how UX has progressed in the region and the tremendous possibilities moving forward.
