Config Europe

to

We’re taking our user conference on the (virtual) road, Europe you’re up. 


We hosted Config, our first user conference, earlier this year and brought our whole community together to share and learn from each other. We plan to do that every year, but we also want to connect and hear from you more frequently than that. Config Europe was born from an idea of taking a (mini) conference on the road to communities all over the world. For our first one, we're coming to Europe - virtually. The event is free and open to everyone.

What you can expect
You can expect a great lineup of speakers, opportunities to network with other attendees, space to ask your burning Figma questions, and to connect with people from all other the world. We'll continue to add to the agenda on this page and you can find our speakers and FAQs at Config.Figma.com.

Our commitment
Inclusion is a key priority at Figma and we are committed to creating a conference that represents people of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, socio-economic statuses, religious affiliation, and abilities. We ask that all Config Europe attendees follow our code of conduct. As part of the registration process, we’ll ask you a few demographic questions; please share as much or as little as you feel comfortable. Your answers will be kept confidential and will only be used internally at Figma for the direct purpose of this conference; we will never share this information externally.

We believe that everyone should have equal opportunity to fully participate and will do our best to make our event accessible to all attendees. We will provide closed captioning wherever possible and will work with speakers to ensure presentations are accessible to attendees with vision impairment or low vision. For this specific event all content will be in English.

Stay connected between now and Config Europe
The Figma team will be in touch with all the info you need to join the conference day of. In the meantime, join us on our Friends of Figma slack and follow #configeurope on Twitter for updates and to meet other attendees.
