About the Venue

SkyBanquet is the venue for UI/UX Conf

SKYBANQUET cultural park is located at Santai Matou in the South Bund by Huangpu River—Santai Matou is in south of the Bund by Huangpu River. Before liberation, there were more than 50 warehouses with different sizes from Dongmen Road of Shiliupu to current Nanpu Bridge. Santai Matou was booming as the dock warehouse of Huang Jinrong and Du Yuesheng. It was mainly used as a dock for vessels and unloading and loading operations. Now a premier event location we’ll be celebrating the first UI/UX Design event right on the bund.
