Adobe has confirmed plans to run Adobe Live once again this year, at London's Business Design Centre on May 26 and 27.

The free event will be larger than it was last year, Adobe promised. Attendees should expect a larger exhibition area plus a wider variety of seminars including demonstrations of the new Adobe Creative Suite 2.

What to expect

Day one features a 90-minute keynote presnetation on the importance of design, and a 60-minute presentation on digital imaging.

Three key themes include: Digital Imaging, Publishing, Design and Advertising. Attendees will be able to watch demonstrations and learn tips and tricks on Adobe CS2

There will also be ‘New Thinking’ industry-led sessions which "showcase how top professionals are realizing their creative vision through the use of technology", the company said.

Exhibitors include: Apple, Canon, Dell, Epson, HP and JPY –third-party developers and systems integrators.

Something for everyone

Adobe marketing manager for creative customers Eric McCashey said: “Adobe Live was such a success last year - we wanted to continue it in 2005. We have worked hard to build a programme that encompasses everyone’s needs - whether they are in print or Web design, advertising or photography - we have a workshop or presentation that will be interesting and useful. Following the launch of Creative Suite 2, it’s an ideal opportunity for visitors to see the new products for themselves."

Other Adobe Live events will be held in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany in May. Interested parties should pre-register using the link above.
