User experience experts Usability247 have been named as partners for the 2018 UK Digital Experience Awards, which are returning to London this summer.

The firm helps businesses implement effective digital user experience initiatives for big name clients including Telefonica (O2) and Dixons Carphone Group, and will help hosts Awards International put on the biggest UK Digital Experience Awards to date.

The finals event is taking place on July 12 at the Wembley Hilton, and entries are now open for organisations from across the UK to enter. Shortlisted finalists will be invited to give a presentation before an expert panel of judges in the morning, before their entries are scored and the winners announced during a gala afternoon luncheon ceremony.

Finalists will compete in 23 categories, including Best Use of AR or VR, Utilities, and Not for Profit & Charity. New categories this year include Best Restaurant, Take Away & Delivery and Publishing.

Joining the ever-growing judges’ line-up for 2018 are Gordon Rimmer, Director of Marketing at Connect Managed Services; Kate Thompson, Founder and Managing Director of Business 3.0; and the Founder and CEO of Usability247 himself, Paul Blunden. Paul has also been appointed Chairman of this year’s UK Digital Experience Awards.

He said:

“Usability247 is delighted to be partnering with the DXA on the 2018 awards. Recognising best practice is important and encourages other organisations to improve the digital experience they deliver to their customers. Together with the opportunities the UK Digital Experience Awards creates to learn about emerging trends, they are a leader in driving improvements in digital experience everywhere.”

Welcoming the firm back for another successful year, Awards International CEO Neil Skehel said:

“It is fantastic that UX experts Usability247 will be partnering with the UK Digital Experience Awards in 2018. The awards celebrate and recognise the inspiring ways organisations use digital applications to drive their customer experience forward, and we are delighted that Usability247 is as passionate as we are about supporting best practice in this area. I look forward to working with them in rewarding digital excellence and innovation.”
