Ask Cecily: Design Conferences

If you could attend any design conference, which would you pick and why?

Um, all of them? Any of them? I'm not picky!

If I HAD to choose one, it would probably be Adobe Max because it seems to be the most comprehensive and it's a big name event that lands big name speakers. It also offers good variety in design topics and doesn't just focus on web or interactive, like many others. As if all of that isn't enough to sway my decision, the website for Adobe Max had a LOT more information on it and was easier to navigate, which tells me (perhaps incorrectly) that it is more organized.

Other conferences that would be in the running: SxSW, How Design Live, and TED (TED is borderline if it even counts as a design conference...)
