I just had my bi-annual review, and one of the pieces that was listed on my professional development was to attend two UX Conferences in 2017. I'm excited to get to attend, but admittedly I'm unsure of what the best conferences might be. I'm not looking to learn any new skills in particular, but to stay up-to-date, more or less, on the industry and trends, to do some networking, and broaden my UX horizons?
Can anyone recommend any conferences?
Difficulty: I probably can't travel too far, so ideally the conference would be in the US. Australia is definitely out (sorry @HAWK), and Europe is likely not in the cards, with the possible exception of the UK if I ask very nicely.
