Just a week after announcing its 99U conference will be online-only this year, Adobe has announced it’s annual MAX conference, originally planned to take place in Los Angeles, California in late October, will be a free online-only event this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In an announcement on the Adobe MAX website, Adobe writes the following under the headline ‘ADOBE MAX 2020 — The Creativity Conference goes online:’
‘The health and safety of Adobe customers, partners, and employees is and always has been our top priority. To that end, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person MAX event and make MAX 2020 a digital experience. And while we won’t be seeing you in person, we’re planning an immersive event that stays true to the MAX spirit of mind-blowing creativity and inspiration.’
