Adobe MAX 2020

Adobe's Annual Creativity Conference

This year's conference was fully online, and registration was free. This attracted millions of attendees worldwide.  In his keynote address, Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen pointed out that "This year's event demonstrates the power of digital to bring us all together now. What a challenging year it has been ... the isolation we're experiencing has underscored the need for human connection.  We are truly enduring unprecedented circumstances.  But these trying times have also illuminated that creativity has never been more important ... because creativity connects us, enables us to learn, encourages us to speak out, and gives us a way to cope. We've seen it everywhere this year."

Although the conference has concluded, its impact has not.  There are over 350 sessions available from the Adobe MAX 2020 creativity conference. You may want to explore these free on-demand sessions depending on your particular interests.  Visit the Adobe MAX 2020 video portal at
