I am looking for some great creative seminars or conferences for my Creative Director and creative team.  Obviously, I would like it to be innovative and new ideas/market trends.  Any one have any they would like to share?

Hey Maria, Jasper here.  I went to Digital PM Summit last year and had a blast. It is run by the Bureau of Digital team and they offer much more for creatives and owner types.  Have a look. http://bureauofdigital.com/

Also, I know it's not directly "creative" but WordCamp MSP is in August. We plan on being there again. https://2017.minneapolis.wordcamp.org/

We have sent our creative team to Adobe MAX for the last three years. It has been a pretty pricey proposition with registration, travel and hotel, however, it has been extremely beneficial. There is the opportunity for creatives to actually sit in sessions where the product and design teams of the software they use everyday, are the speakers. Additionally, Adobe generally times version updates and new software around the event, so there is opportunity to be the first to work on version updates, new software, and beta-tests.

Worth noting: In 2014 and 2015 there were about 5500 attendees. Last year they moved it to San Diego and upped the attendance to about 11500, sessions were booked very early and there were some strains on their logistics. This year's conference is in Las Vegas, and hopefully they have made adjustments to handle the larger crowd.

We have gone to Adobe Max as well several times. Awesome. Also send designers to HOW conference, and we are involved in the AIGA and American Marketing Association.
