Adobe is gathering the world’s greatest creative minds in Los Angeles this week, for the Adobe MAX 2019 conference. The event will take place at the LA Convention Centre from 4 to 6 November.

Adobe uses the MAX conference to announce major changes and features. This could include app changes or even new software altogether.

With Adobe Fresco being released back in September, we are sure that many of the creatives gathered at this year’s event will feature their Fresco creations.

Adobe MAX: What you need to know

With more than 15 000 attendees gathering to join in the fun at Adobe MAX 2018, we can only imagine what this year’s event will be like.

With Adobe announcing last year that Photoshop would be coming iPad, many are hoping that this year’s major announcement would be Illustrator for iPad.

Adobe has not confirmed anything as yet and we live in hope.

Adobe MAX agenda

This year’s event will include Sessions, Labs and Workshops, along with a community pavilion and keynotes from some of the leading creatives in the industry.

Designers will get the opportunity to learn from established artists and to connect with people who love to create. One of the taglines for this year’s event is:

“Meet your fellow creatives and find some new heroes.”

One of the highlights on Tuesday 5 November will be this year’s celebrity host, Emmy Award-winning writer and comedian, John Mulaney.

Adobe Max sessions and speakers

Photographers will learn from the likes of Jack Davis, Katrin Eismann, Sean Duggan and Julieanne Kost, while digital artists will be able to draw inspiration from Anna Daviscourt, Rob Generette and Spencer Nugent.

Dave Grohl – who founded Foo Fighters in 1994 after the dissolution of Nirvana – will also be in attendance at this year’s Adobe MAX conference.

The complete Sessions agenda can be viewed here, while all the speakers for the event can be found here.

Creativity for all

From Adobe Sessions and Q&A, to creativity workshops where materials will be provided, creatives will have the opportunity to take it all in and expand their horizons.

The event also hosts two kinds of ‘Labs’. With the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) labs, designers will be able to learn on their own laptops, tablets or smartphones.

There will also be a dedicated PC or Mac available at the regular ‘Labs’, which will be preloaded with the software and files designers will need. Both classes will be approximately 90 minutes.
