Make the most of your MAX experience
Is this your first time at MAX? Welcome! Whether you're just starting out in your career, or you're an old pro, we want MAX to be a great experience for you.
Here are the most helpful tips and tricks for navigating the conference. From signing up for sessions, to purchasing a pass and booking a hotel — we've got you covered. Get ready to get inspired, network with your peers and learn more in one week than you ever thought possible:
There's a TON of great content at MAX — everything from hands–on labs taught by product experts, to inspirational sessions given by your design heros. Choose the courses that are right for you, but book as soon as possible for the best chance to get your first choices. If a session is full, don't panic. You can always sign up for the waitlist, and there are hundreds more options to choose from.
There's so much going on in downtown LA. Book early at the area hotels we're partnering with, and you'll be close to all the action.
Include your Behance profile name when you register so other MAX attendees can see your work — and you can view theirs.
It's tempting to pack your schedule with all the sessions. But make some time to visit the Community Pavilion — you won't want to miss the art, exhibits, sponsor offers, and giveaways. This is also the place to get hands-on with all the latest product features, and talk directly to the experts.
Don't forget to visit the MAX Marketplace — taking place all day on Wednesday in the Community Pavilion. Buy directly from all the artists in this huge collection of pop-up shops.
This is the ultimate party — food trucks, art installations, live music, and so much more. It's the creative festival of your dreams.
MAX is filled with people who live, breathe and eat creativity. These are your people — meet them on the MAX Facebook and Twitter channels and onsite. You can also join the conversation on Facebook to get tips straight from other attendees.
Lots of walking! Bring comfortable shoes.
Conference spaces can sometimes be cold — bring layers so you're prepared.
Save room in your suitcase. You'll leave with tons of great souvenirs — make sure you grab a poster tube to take your art home.
