Is it my imagination but it's distinct

Once upon a time, about 20 years ago, Adobe used to have these amazing seminars almost every month promoting or introducing a new software, tip, or how it works with other companies in every city. As a young student, I looked for the opportunity to attend and possible snag some cool door prizes (probably my proudest win was an Adobe t-shirt!)...nowadays, these rarely comes to town anymore? Everything is now online.

Or is it just my imagination....

The online world gets a bit old. The razzle-dazzle of the slick presentations isn't nearly as meaningful as a smile and a handshake from a genuine person, but because I do not live in a big city, it is the only exposure I get. Wanting to know all things Adobe, I spend a lot of time online reading and attending online events. It takes some scheduling, but is worth it. The only one-on-one seminars are now costly affairs in expensive cities.

​Our Adobe Office for the Asia Pacific region, with its director Tim Kitchen, has done a great of using Adobe Connect to bring product development and awareness to the front as well as professional development opportunities to the AEL community. Maybe there is something similar in your region?

I don't believe so that I know off. And I have discussed this with other colleagues too, and we haven't been aware of any either.

​As awesome as those seminars were, I can't imagine them being cost effective.

Yes, I agree but it is an expense against all that revenue that Adobe makes!​

Yes much is online. There are some events as Create Live, and there are a bunch of evangelists on Twitch. I too have a T-shirt from such event.

​Yes. But face-to-face will always be more personalized!
