What’s new at MAX 2023

Attendees at Adobe MAX

Whether it's your first or fifteenth time, there is something new for everyone at MAX 2023. Join us in person for the 3-day conference in Los Angeles or tune in from anywhere for the 2-day online event.

New to MAX

There’s never been a better time to attend. There are some new things in store for 2023 based directly on attendee feedback from the MAX 2022 survey. We’re excited for you to see what we’ve been planning. From exciting product launches, the Creative Park, Super Sessions, and inspiration at every turn, MAX 2023 is the perfect place to explore your creative possibility no matter your background.

Creative Park

This year, the Creative Park is the place to network with other creatives, speakers, and partners while engaging in fun activations. Learn about the newest products and services from Adobe experts in the Adobe Experience booth and attend Creative Park Theater sessions and mini-labs. Find community and collaboration with your fellow creatives while taking 20-min Tips & Tricks mini-labs between sessions. This is a wonderful opportunity to get more hands-on content at MAX, which has been highly requested over past years.

MAX Marketplace

This year, the MAX Marketplace is now spread throughout the floor and available over all 3 days. There will be 8 unique popups each day featuring MAX speakers and the Adobe creative community. From t-shirts to art prints and stationery, leave time for shopping. Make sure to find your favorite vendors as most will not be present for the entirety of the show.

Networking Session for MAX First Timers

Are you a first time Adobe MAX attendee? Want to connect with others and have a little fun at the same time? Drop by the Creative Conversations Theater in the Creative Park on October 10th from 11:30 AM - 12:00 PM and get to know other first-timers while learning some key tips that will help take your MAX experience to the max! This meetup is hosted by Adobe Community Expert and Accessibility Trainer Dax Castro who will share the insider secrets to help make the most of your Adobe MAX experience.

Creativity Super Sessions

Tune into MAX’s hour-long super sessions that are jammed packed with Creatives and Adobe Experts presenting their top tips and workflows with new innovative technology. Take a deep dive with top creatives who use Adobe tools every day.

Creativity Super Session: Graphic Design [SS1]

Join Adobe Principal Evangelist Paul Trani and top designers Kelsey Slay, Anna McNaught, and Magdiel Lopez as they show off new technologies to help speed up and perfect your graphic design workflows using tools like Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe Express, and Adobe Firefly.

Get to rough cut faster with Text-Based Editing, create automatic transcripts, and edit video as easily as cutting and pasting text

Use automatic transcripts to add subtitles or create graphics customized and stylized to match your brand

Automatically color-correct videos, mask and track objects, and reframe videos for various social channels in Premiere Pro and After Effects
