Yes, the number one reason for going to Photoshop World is the amazing training you’ll receive on Photoshop, photography and Lightroom. But there are plenty of other great benefits of attending that may not be obvious at first glance. For example…
Vendor demonstrations: many vendors hold demonstrations and/or have guest speakers at their booth.
The Keynote: you’ve never really seen a conference keynote until you’ve experienced one at Photohsop World!
Chat with Adobe: stop by the Adobe booth to chat with Product Managers to share your thoughts about Photoshop and Lightroom
Photoshop Wars: a fun new part of the Expo, pairing instructors and attendees in a Photoshop contest
Expo Theater Classes: in addition to the conference classes there always seems to be a class going on at the Expo – for free.
Live taping of PSUTV: Every year we tape an episode of Photoshop User TV. There’s nothing quite like seeing it live ;)
Dinner with a Stranger: sign up for this great opportunity to meet new people over dinner.
Deals: many vendors offer amazing discounts at their booths. I’ve seen people walk away with incredible deals!
Tweet-ups: attend the “official” Twwet-up or use Twitter to create your own social gathering.
New technology: over the years many vendors have used the Photoshop World Expo to show publicly for the first time their latest products. It could happen again this year…
Ask the Instructors: between classes, the instructors wander around the conference and the Expo floor and are happy to chat and try to answer your questions.
Help Desk Live: bring your burning Photoshop questions for Pete Bauer and the staff of the NAPP Help Desk
Fun. Okay, maybe this one is kind of obvious but it bears repeating: you’ll have a ton of fun at Photoshop World – while your head explodes with new ideas, techniques and inspiration.
