Figma's first user conference will take place on February 6, 2020, in San Francisco, CA. The cost is $299 but scholarships are available. Get involved by submitting our Call for Proposals or filling out our Attendee Application by November 20th.
Over the last few years, we’ve seen the Figma user base grow from a few early beta customers to now hundreds of thousands of active users worldwide. While many things have changed, one thing has not: the community continues to learn from each other. Because design is constantly evolving, designers look to their peers for inspiration, knowledge, and ideas.
That’s why we announced last week we’re bringing the Figma community into the product with a public space for publishing live design files and connecting with others inside the tool. Today we’re building on that momentum by announcing our first conference — an IRL space for our users to come together to learn from each other.
We’re shaping the conference programming around our community, structuring many sessions as shorter lightning talks, workshops, and roundtables to give a broader array of Figma users the chance to contribute. Although we’ll have a few keynotes, we hope to give new voices the opportunity to share as well.
To do this, we need your help.
Have you built something cool that you want to share? Have you learned a lesson the hard way or have a topic you want to discuss with peers? Do you have a collaborative activity in Figma that you can share? Submit your ideas in our Call for Proposals. Sessions can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as an hour.
You can submit a proposal or nominate someone else you'd like to see speak. All proposals are due by November 20, 2019, at 11:59 pm PST.
We aim to create a conference where meaningful conversations can happen, so we’re starting small in terms of size. We also want to make sure the attendees of this conference promote diversity of ability, age, education, ethnicity, gender, race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.
Fill out this form if you’d like to attend. Please submit your application by November 20, 2019, at 11:59 pm PST.
We would love to accommodate as many people as we can but there is a chance we will sell out. As a result, we may be forced to use a lottery process to help ensure the final attendees represent a diverse group.
After the deadline, attendees will be notified and have a guaranteed week to buy their pass.
The conference is $299, but we don’t want cost to deter anyone from attending. We have a scholarship program for anyone who needs financial assistance to be able to attend.
We can’t wait to create this conference with you. Any questions in the meantime, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
