It’s not every day that you get to hear first hand from a man who has jumped from the very edge of space and broken the speed of sound (without the help of a fighter jet)!
That man is Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner and we are excited to announce that he will be joining us at Summit! Given that he had a huge impact on social networks when he made his Red Bull Stratus record leap in October 2012, we thought he would be a great addition.
When sponsor Red Bull posted a picture of Felix touching down on Facebook, within 40 minutes the image was shared more than 29,000 times and generated nearly 216,000 likes and more than 10,000 comments. During the jump, half the worldwide trending topics on Twitter were about Felix. And on YouTube the jump was a hit with close to 8 million people tuning in to watch the live stream – the biggest live audience to date on that channel.
We can’t wait to hear Felix speak at Summit and hope you’ll be able to join us!
We’re pleased and honored to announce that gritty rock and roll duo The Black Keys will be headlining this year’s Summit Bash on March 6th.
The Black Keys have an impressive resume. They’ve topped Alternative radio charts around the world, rocked Coachella, opened for the Rolling Stones, and won three 2011 Grammy Awards, as well as being nominated for five more Grammys in 2012. We can’t wait to welcome them to Summit and we hope you can’t either!
The Khan Academy is a not-for-profit organization with the lofty goal of changing education for the better by providing a free world-class education for anyone, anywhere.
Since their inception in 2006, Kahn Academy has made good on that mission by delivering more than 230 million views of its archive of free educational videos in subjects ranging from organic chemistry to art history to macroeconomics.
We’re honored to welcome the founder and Executive Director of Kahn Academy, Salman Kahn, as a featured speaker for Adobe Summit this year. In 2012, Time magazine named Khan in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. We can’t wait to hear what he has to share with us.
Salman Kahn’s 2011 TED talk is below, but to see him live in action you’ll have to come to Summit!

The roster of speakers at Adobe Summit is always strong, and this year is no exception.
One of the speakers we’re thrilled to have at Summit 2013 is Jack Philbin, Co-Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vibes, a leading company in the mobile marketing and wireless industry.
Jack will share his thoughts on how to turn big data into big dollars, as well as insights into key mobile trends, the evolving mobile landscape, ROI on mobile, and much more in his session on Day 1 of Summit.
If you’re wrestling with how to take better advantage of the many opportunities in the mobile world, and beat the challenges mobile presents to marketers, this is a “must see” session.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be spotlighting more of the luminary and keynote speakers here on the blog. If you’ll be at Summit, make sure you add their sessions to your Summit plan!
