The Essential Event for InDesign Pros

May 22–25, 2017
Atlanta, Georgia


Join the world’s top InDesign experts and members of the Adobe InDesign team, May 22–25 in Atlanta, Georgia, for the InDesign event of the year!

Adobe InDesign is the hub of your workflow, so the more you learn about InDesign, the more efficient and productive you'll be! When you attend The InDesign Conference, you will reap the benefits for years to come — and have fun doing so!

You need what we cover. At the InDesign Conference, you'll learn power-user techniques you can put to use immediately, and best practices for print, PDF, and digital output that you can share with your team. At our Meet the Experts table, you can get answers to your own workflow and production questions. You'll make connections with hundreds of colleagues from around the world, people you can turn to for advice, assistance, and referrals long after the conference is done.

You're our people. Our attendees are graphic designers, production artists, creative managers, educators, small publishers, workflow consultants, and "one-man-bands" who do it all. They span a wide spectrum of experience, from “newbies” to “mavens,” and hail from design studios and graphics departments at companies large and small.

Attendees at previous events include designers, art directors, and production staff from hundreds of companies around the world, including:
