Quite possibly the most anticipated evening of the event, the Sneaks provide a unique opportunity to see inside Adobe development labs as product teams show off new technologies that may (or may not) make into future products and services. Adobe’s own Ben Forta will be joining the celebrity hosts for an evening of innovation and laughs.

Be sure to join us at Nokia Theatre, Tuesday evening, May 7th – MAX badge required, so register now.
