Adobe’s annual creative conference, Adobe Max, has announced its first ever edition in Europe, bringing a wide range of speakers and eclectic activities to Lisbon from 14–16 June 2020. Described as “the perfect mix of learning, inspiration and networking”, the conference will see leading lights from the creative fields take to the various stages to show their work, lead workshops, and run product demonstrations.
Proceedings kick off with a training day on 14 June, while the following two days are packed with keynote presentations and the ever-eventful “Sneaks”, where attendees get a quick peek into what Adobe’s research teams are developing for the future. Alongside these talks, Adobe additionally runs workshop sessions and showcases industry-shaping product updates. To round the festivities off, there is also the infamous MAX Bash celebration. Last year’s MAX in LA featured Vampire Weekend as headliners, so we’re sure Adobe will bring out someone equally as spectacular.
Not specific to one particular discipline or another, Adobe MAX offers a wide range of opportunities for those across the creative industries. Throughout the event, there are workshops and inspirational talks for designers working in graphic, web and UX fields, art and creative directors as well as illustrators, filmmakers, photographers, motion graphic artists, and technology or business strategists.
Speakers already announced for Adobe MAX’s inaugural European event include Adobe’s VP of design Jamie Myrold and executive Vice President of Creative Cloud Scott Belsky; illustrator Monika Gause; lettering designer Martina Flor; creative director of Vasava Bruno Sellés; and Jason Levine, Adobe’s principal worldwide evangelist. Further creative leaders will be announced over the coming months. (As a reference, at Adobe MAX in Los Angeles last November, on the billing were photographer David LaChapelle, artist Shantell Martin, graphic designer Paula Scher, film director M. Night Shyamalan, artist Takashi Murakami, and pop sensation Billie Eilish.)
A slightly smaller event than its usual home of LA, Adobe MAX in Lisbon will play host to 5,000 creatives over the three-day event – so tickets are sure to be snapped up quickly, especially at the early bird price of €300 and €99, permanently for under 25s. While plenty more line-up announcements are still to be released, there is the opportunity to nab your ticket already, at an early-bird price and all.
