In case you missed it, Adobe has just splashed out $1.7 billion to acquire ecommerce solution provider Magento, effectively making it the only organisation with leadership in content creation, marketing, advertising, analytics and now commerce – enabling real-time experiences across the entire customer journey.

“Embedding commerce into the Adobe Experience Cloud with Magento enables Adobe to make every moment personal and every experience shoppable,” Adobe’s VP of digital experience, Brad Rencher, explained.

So if ever you needed an excuse to demand your boss let you attend Adobe’s Symposium in Sydney Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 August, surely this is it!

Still not sure you’ll get accounts across the line when it comes to signing off the measly price of your ticket?

Well consider the theme of the event: customers expect amazing experiences. And you’re the one who will make them. Because you are an experience maker – a rock-star marketer or creative professional who knows the power of the experience economy.

So, if you want to engage with your customers at a deeper level and create unbelievable experiences, then join us. Become an experience maker.

And then, of course, there’s the headline speakers.

Here’s just a sample of some of the people you could expect and bear in mind there’s more people to be announced.
