Immersive experiences, complexity, and saving our digital soul.

From Business to Buttons is the meeting place for everyone who wants inspiration and hands-on advice on how to maximize business value by creating great user experiences. Every year almost 1000 professionals, working with everything from autonomous driving and public spaces to apps and websites, gather for a one-track conference with some of the world’s greatest UX and Service Design speakers. Welcome to Stockholm!

For 2018 we’ve secured some really exciting speakers. The topics include e.g.

  • how to design truly immersive experiences – like perhaps the most beautiful game ever created,
  • learn to manage the complexity that follows from a truly holistic service design approach,
  • leverage the transformative power of design in your leadership, and
  • how can we shield our integrity, with GDPR and beyond, in a time when our digital soul is for sale,
  • and – of course – much more…

We’re so excited about the line-up this year – we think this will be the best conference ever! Hope to see you in Stockholm, 15th of May 2018.

Trust Me: How User Experience Design Protects Privacy, with GDPR and Beyond

Ame Elliott

Wednesday, 16 May, 09:00 – 17:00

Building a trustworthy product requires a diverse team. Historically, security has been treated as an engineering topic, with user experience (UX) separated from the technical implementation. But the landscape of trust is changing with the imminent enforcement of the GDPR, and with recent data breaches growing to affect hundreds of millions of users. Security, privacy, transparency, and ethics are becoming everyone’s job.

The Venue.

The conference venue building at Cirkus, Stockholm

Cirkus is situated on the most prodigious part of Djurgården. It was built in 1892 and has been renovated several times, but always remained a true landmark in Stockholm. Almost everyone – yup – from Kraftwerk, Soundgarden to Rolling Stones and Laleh, has made their mark at Cirkus. Join us at From Business to Buttons to experience this magical venue first hand.

The venue is located on Djurgården. The easiest way to get there is by bus number 67 or tram 7; the nearest stop is Skansen. If you want to arrive in style, you can also take the ferry from Slussen.
