After MWC, CP+ and several other trade shows and conferences, Adobe Summit 2020 is also being canceled due to the coronavirus concerns. However, the organizers have found the way to still host the event. Instead of taking place at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, this year’s Adobe Summit is going to become an online event.
The health and safety of our community is our top priority. After careful consideration, we’ve made the difficult but important decision to host this year’s #AdobeSummit and #MagentoImagine as online-only experiences. https://t.co/wQQVpAo0dy

Adobe’s EVP & GM, Digital Experience Anil Chakravarthy shared the updates in a blog post. He writes that Adobe has been closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19. It was a difficult decision, but they decided to cancel the live event in Las Vegas. “While we are disappointed that we will not be together in-person with our community this year, we are excited to host Adobe Summit as a digital experience,” Chakravarthy concludes.
The dates of the event will stay unchanged and it will take place from 29 March to 2 April 2020. Adobe has set up a dedicated FAQ page to help you resolve any issues and concerns you might have. Although Adobe Summit has been switched to online event, the company still plans to host Adobe Summit EMEA from 13-14 May 2020 in London. And while some major trade shows have been canceled, Photokina, NAB, and The Photography Show are still going ahead. At least that’s the plan for now.
