Creative Tech Week

This month, the Creative Apps Community meetup celebrates the beginning of Creative Tech Week.

In partnership with NYC EDC, Creative Tech Week is creating a city-wide 10-day festival that will showcase the intersection of creativity and technology, with a combination of free events for consumers and 350+ ticketed events for professionals, entrepreneurs, developers and creatives.

Spanning 10 days and 5 boroughs, Creative Tech Week will feature cutting edge virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), data visualization, generative algorithms, 3D printing, experimental/interactive advertising and creative computer programming.

Use code ADOBE for 20% off of paid events during Creative Tech Week.
