What is EPIC?
—Maria Bezaitis, President, EPIC Board
EPIC promotes the use of ethnographic principles to create business value. We are a diverse, global community of practitioners who build deep understandings of people and their practices to ensure that innovation, strategies, processes, and products are anchored in what matters to people in their everyday lives. EPIC people come together at our annual conference and year-round on epicpeople.org to learn, share expertise, create knowledge, and expand opportunities for our work. We invite you to explore our open access library and learn about EPIC Membership.
Who Attends EPIC?
—Annette Priest, Managing Director – Strategic UX & Product Design, The Advisory Board Company
EPIC is the premier international gathering on ethnography in business. Our diverse attendees come from every industry, including Fortune-500 companies, the world’s top technology firms, management consultancies and design studios, universities and NGOs, public policy organizations and think tanks.
Our program is as diverse as our community, offering a variety of presentation and discussion formats, as well as opportunities to engage with each other in formal and informal settings. Here’s an overview of types of programming you can expect in 2019.
When EPIC people gather we grow together, access global expertise, gain knowledge and concrete skills, find new business partners and opportunities, and make the invaluable connections that have grown EPIC into an essential, year-round community.
