This coming February the NewCo Bay Area Festival will celebrate businesses that are purpose driven, forward-looking and innovative. We’re proud to announce that we’re a sponsor and have some exciting contributions to the festival in the works.
NewCo is unique in that it offers an opportunity to choose from 130+ innovative companies – including Adobe – offering tours, presentations and open discussion in their home offices from Feb 6-9, 2017.
NewCo is the brainchild of entrepreneur, author and journalist John Battelle and since 2012 NewCo festivals have welcomed over 30,000 attendees into the offices of 1,500 innovative organizations. This year, for the first time, NewCo Bay Area extends south into Adobe’s hometown, San Jose. Our offices are going through a renovation that encourages collaboration and creativity – and we look forward to hosting festival events that showcase what the new Adobe is all about.
We already have a couple of events planned as part of The Festival. Josh Ulm, Adobe’s senior director of Experience Design will be speaking as part of the NewCo Masterclass on Design/UX on Monday February 6th in San Francisco. We’ll also be hosting a “Future of Work” think tank at our San Jose headquarters later that week, where we’ll explore how work practices are changing and how digital document technologies are fueling workplace disruption. And we have a few other plans that are in the works, so stay tuned for details.
If you’d like to sign up to attend the festival, schedule and ticket information are available here. We look forward to seeing you in February.
