I'm travelling to Boulder for the event. Where should I stay?
The St. Julien Hotel & Spa is offering a special rate for ADIM13 attendees. Visit the St. Julien's ADIM Reservation Page to book your stay.
If an ADIM attendee already has an existing Adobe Creative Cloud membership, how will the ADIM13 complimentary membership work?
When an ADIM attendee activates or "redeems" their complimentary membership, the clock will start for a 12 month cycle upon redemption. Once that complimentary timeframe is over, their original contract will resume where it left off. In other words: your paid Adobe Creative Cloud membership will be on hold for 12 months.
Will the Adobe Creative Cloud membership start its 12 month countdown when I register for ADIM13?
How about Lynda.com? If an attendee already has a membership, how will a comp membership work?
Your comp Lynda.com membership will be added to your existing one - like stacking pancakes!
