Captivate Roadshow – Oct 25-29, Nov 1-2

We are doing a Captivate/eLearning Roadshow in the week of Oct 25-29 and Nov 1-2, 2010.

Locations – US East Coast (NYC, DC, …) and Bay Area (SF, San Jose, …). Do let us know if you are not in these areas, we will try and accommodate a slot to visit you.

Our Agenda for the meeting will be:

– Take our users through a sneak-peek of what to expect in the future from Captivate and eLearning Suite

– Understand your workflows/concerns better and tailor solutions into our roadmap

– Deep dive (beyond Captivate 5) and suggest best practices to optimize your existing workflows

– Help set up a direct communication channel with the Adobe product team

Please leave a comment on this post if you would like to meet us.  Look forward to our discussions!

  • I am sure that you will have a full house if you include Atlanta, GA.

  • Jenn Grover

    With all of the tech developed in Pittsburgh, you would be sure to be a success if you planned one for the Steeler Nation. 🙂

  • I vote for a stop in PIttsburgh too. I would love to go to the road show and learn!

  • You should swing by Portland, OR while you’re on the West Coast….

  • Dan Hupp

    I agree with the last post. There are a lot of ID folks in Pittsburgh using Captivate, we sure hope you will add us to this tour.

    • If the Pittsburgh gang wants to gather – I actually live very nearby. It’s totally viable for us to have a group meeting or something. The guys are going to Washington this time, but i’ll definitely encourage them to swing a little further over the next time they visit.

      • A group meeting in Pittsburgh would be awesome! Depending on the number of attendees my office may be able to accomodate the meeting. We have a “classroom” that we’ve used for group meetings in the past.

        There is an Adobe eLearning User user group that meet on Carnegie Mellon university’s campus in Oakland (Pittsburgh)… maybe they’d host something for you all to come to?

        I can put you in touch with them if you want… let me know

  • Eric

    How do the roadshows work? Are they lots of private events, or are the gatherings public?

    If public, where in SFBay area will you be?

    • Lots of visits with customers – it gives us a chance to meet people using Captivate and eLearning Suite and better understand their needs, workflows etc.

  • I’ve been trying to get somebody just to do a focused virtual demo for us as we launch a new eLearning initiative and can’t get anyone to return my calls.

    • You can email me directly at allenp (at) adobe (dot) com to set something up.

  • In DC, and would be very interested in learning more about Captivate through the roadshow!


  • Can you schedule a roadshow in Chicago sometime?

  • Come to Boston! it’s the educational factory outlet of the world.

  • Kelly

    Would love a stop in Spokane (but would settle for Seattle) while you’re on the West Coast!

  • Sally Cox and I are manage an Adobe User Group in San Jose, CA that would love to tell our 840+ members about Captivate, and participate in any way we can!

  • Can you share or email the details for the bay area session?
    I would like for us at Oracle to participate. Thanks!

  • Angel nazir


    I am in Sacramento, CA and would love for you to come our here at our local ASTD center. Bay Area gets all the fun stuff and we should have a chance too .


  • Dona Marino

    I would like to arrange a visit with my team in NYC. Monday afternoon is the best time for us.

  • Doug Desilets

    It would be great if you could include Boston. I have a lot of questions and experiences with Cap 5 that I like to share with Adobe.

  • Steve

    I’d like to vote for a stop in the Twin Cities, thanks!

  • Chap

    I’m an IT trainer for a large association in the DC area (Bethesda, MD). We have a large educational component, if you’re interested.

  • Jennifer Zapp

    I’d love to meet, but I’m in Los Angeles. However, I’ll be up in San Francisco for DevLearn on Nov. 4 (one day only). If we could meet then, that would be super.

    • Jennifer, I’ll be there (Allen) with Akshay and Nipun. You can find us on the show floor at the expo on Wednesday and Thursday. We’ll be doing a bunch of short demos throughout both days. Introduce yourself if you happen to stop by.

  • My colleague and I are interested in attending the DC event. How can we get more information or set up an appointment?

  • Erin Fullerman

    We are located in Youngstown, Ohio but we would head to Pittsburgh or Cleveland if you made a stop there!

  • Definitely would love Pittsburgh!

  • BDuck

    Ann Arbor or Detroit would be encouraged!

  • Stacey Colinger

    I agree with the first comment — come to Atlanta! You are sure to get lots of attendees here. Plus, we would love to hear what you have to say about Captivate.

  • Steve Howard


    We tried to get Akshay to come to Atlanta, but it wasn’t possible logistically.

    But we got the next best thing – Akshay has organised to do a 2 hour online presentation for us!!! Check out the details here



  • I would like to arrange a visit with my team in Atlanta. Tuesday morning is the best time for us.

  • I may be able to host one in Los Angeles.

  • Richard Schultz

    Can anybody let me know if the 2 hour online presentation will be available for viewing after the fact? I don’t think I can participate tomorrow morning! 🙁 Thanks!

  • Sara Carpenter

    Fantastic opportunity to meet and talk about what I’m doing with Captivate. Akshay and Shameer – thanks for taking the time to meet!

  • Nicholas Del Carlo

    How about and advanced roadshow in Chicago? We are centrally located.

    Thank you,


  • Becky Goldberg

    Travelers Insurance has a large team of developers in St. Paul, and we’d definitely benefit from a visit. Contact me for information, I can get you in touch with the training network coordinators 🙂
