http://bit.ly/2BHBzhWIt’s back for another year! Join us at Adobe Summit 2018 for one of the most popular sessions from Summit 2017. It’s one part tips and tricks and one part exciting “Shark Tank” experience where the winners are chosen in real time.
This year we’re focusing on not just presentations but live demos to really show the power of the tips and tricks that our contestants have come up with. Think you have an idea that is good enough to battle it out with other finalists in Las Vegas? Submit your tip today!
If you’re chosen as one of our presenters, you’ll receive a free pass (valued at $1895) to Summit on March 25-29, 2018 in Las Vegas, and the opportunity to win cool prizes like airline tickets, laptop, or who knows what! And don’t forget about the bragging rights.
Submit your form here.
Deadline: January 29, 2018
Tips for submission
- Multi-Solution items (AEM + Analytics, IO, etc.) present better to the varied audience of Adobe Summit.
- Think of the value proposition that your tip or trick is solving. Be prepared to defend it.
- Does it “wow” when demoing?
- Adobe customers using Experience Cloud or Adobe Partners with a customer co-presenter are highly desired.
To be considered, all you have to do is submit your tip using this online form. We’re looking for all things AEM. Sites, Assets, Mobile, Forms, anything and EVERYTHING! We want tips that you believe will show your fellow AEM marketers and technologists new things about AEM and help them to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently. Ultimately, your judges will be the session attendees, including leaders from the AEM Product and Marketing teams, as they vote for their favorite tips. Don’t be on the fence about submitting a tip — you might be surprised how useful things can be to others.
We’ll be screening your tips based on how innovative, practical, and valuable they are, as well as how broadly they could be used by AEM marketers and technologists at other companies in different industries. We’ll select up to five finalists who will come to Las Vegas and present their tip to one of the largest audiences at the conference. This is a great opportunity to attend Summit and showcase your talents to the world!
We are giving away some swag to everyone who submits an idea as well. Every person who submits an idea gets the new vol 2 AEM Rockstar sticker (subject to availability)!
