Adobe Summit is an incredible opportunity for marketing leaders from around the world to come together to explore the latest tools and trends in Digital Marketing. Each year, we gather the industry’s top innovators, luminaries, and subject matter experts to share their insights and expertise.
Adobe Summit is a valuable experience to not only those attending in-person in Las Vegas, but also to the entire digital marketing community. In order to extend the Summit experience and to provide on-the-ground coverage, we’ve invited six industry thought leaders to attend as Summit Insiders.
Summit Insiders is a group of marketing experts whom we’ve invited to join us at Summit to share their insights, observations and experiences via social media, blogging and other digital outlets.
There will be plenty of opportunities to join the #AdobeSummit conversation alongside the Summit Insiders, so stay tuned for more information to get involved!
