In addition, the instructors were accessible throughout the conference for informal Q&A and mentoring.
“As a first time attendee to a Barrycon Productions conference, I was very impressed with the high caliber instructors and the material that was covered throughout the Creative Suite Conference, “ said Kara Flanagan, marketing director and Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) for New Horizons Computer Learning Centers. “ I especially enjoyed access to the instructors allowing me to ask questions that were not covered in the session as well as the appropriated sized classes which allowed for a better learning experience.”
Held in conjunction to the Graphics of the Americas-Xplor exhibition and conference, The Creative Suite Conference attendees were also given access to the event’s exhibition floor, which showcased products from the printing and graphic arts industry. For example, the Design City Hall allowed visitors to view the latest products and technologies including software, digital imaging, stock photography, digital cameras, fonts and clip art vendors as well as software solutions including color management, hardware, pre-press, workflow and proofing systems.
