The Usability of Financial Systems, the theme for World Usability Day 2012, will investigate the application of user-centered design methodologies to financial systems and services. We will share insights from user experience professionals ranging from investing to insurance, and discover how customers' changing demands have forced each industry to react.

The evening will be hosted by one of the biggest names in finance:

Bloomberg

Policies

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we will do our best to manage transfers and late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Regular registration closes at the EOD the day before the event -or- whenever seating capacity is reached, whichever occurs first.

Tickets are transferable up to 11AM the day of the event by sending a request to RSVP@nycupa.org. Transferees will please bring the transferer's registration confirmation in printed or digital form as backup. Transfer requests received after 11AM may not be received or processed.

If the event sells out early, a Wait List may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. We will do our best to keep Wait-Listers informed about the status of available seating, but Wait Listers who haven't heard anything by noon the day of the event can assume there has been no change in status.

Attendees are asked to use our website to sign up for our events. NYC UXPA cannot register attendees in response to email requests.
