What is the best design conference in the midwest?

My answer to What is the best design conference in the midwest? on Quora

If you’re looking for a general UX/web design event, the An Event Apart series are excellent—they tour various American cities including Chicago from August 27-29. http://aneventapart.com/2012/chi...

There are a bunch of UX events coming up in the midwest—I’ve not been to any of them so I can’t make a recommendation, but they all look very good on paper—Confab is a Content Strategy event in Minneapolis in mid-May, Midwest UX is in Columbus (31 May to 2nd June), and UXMad is in in Madison in July.

We’ve got a good directory of upcoming conferences in the Midwest here: http://lanyrd.com/places/midwest...—you can search it or filter by topic down the right hand side. Hope you find it useful!
