Adobe has announced that its 16th annual 99U Creative Conference will be held online. While it’s a paid event in normal conditions, this year’s conference will be completely free for everyone. The reason for making the event virtual is, of course, the coronavirus pandemic, which also made Adobe turn the Adobe Summit into an online event.
This year’s 99U Creative Conference will take place on 17 June and you can access it wherever you are. It will feature keynote talks, creative workshops, and masterclasses, available through Adobe Live, Behance, or on-demand after each event is finished. Of course, you’ll need to register with your name, email address, and location first.
I’ve never attended the 99U Creative Conference, but I learned from DPReview that the ticket normally costs around $1,000 (wow). So, I’ll definitely take my chance to attend it for free and see what it looks like to be there (kind of), even if it’s only online.
