MAX Travel Tips

Here are some helpful tips for traveling... particularly to Adobe MAX.

I’m covering the essentials and time saving tips. I might seem like a person who loves to travel but I think the process is annoying so I take extra measures to make it easier on myself.

Your suite case is probably the #1 item you want to plan well.

DO pack your shoes in a plastic bag before putting them in your suite case. Dirty shoe t-shirt smell = not so nice smelling

DO put your liquid into a plastic bag even though you are checking in your bag, I’ve had my toothpaste burst all over my clothes before, it isn’t fun. (carry on – its each bottle can be 3.4 oz or less in one zip lock bag)

DO put a ribbon and tag on your bag to easily identify (especially if it is a black suite case)

DO NOT over stuff your suite case! You will have more to take home than you came with. (Adobe MAX promises to provide lots of swag.)

HEALTH TIP: Grab some Airborn and hand sanitizer (trust me on this)


I recommend printing your shuttle reservation, hotel reservation, airline itinerary, MAX attendee confirmation, essential phone numbers, and schedule. Put them all into ONE envelope/folder and put it in the front pocket of your bag or purse. It is just easier to have it all in one place.

WEATHER: LA looks like great weather for MAX with almost no chance of rain. Temperatures mostly between 68-75 highs and 55-58 lows. Bring layers. Conference center rooms are usually a little chilly. Wear comfy shoes too.
