In May 2013, the Midwest Digital Asset Managers meetup group was launched in Chicago (IL) as “…a group intended for anyone interested in the various aspect of Digital Asset Management.”
I would imagine DAM professionals and people interested in Digital Asset Management (DAM) from all over Chicago area could meet together with like-minded people about DAM. Regardless of market sector, they are likely are faced with similar challenges around people, process, technology, information, budgets and other issues. There are solutions to all of these issues a
Then again, maybe Chicago has more rainbows than everyone else in the world and they may not have to face any issues with Digital Asset Management. Otherwise, Chicago can join their regional DAM community just like New York, Southern California and London has to discuss their successes and challenges with all aspects of DAM.
Speaking as one of the co-organizers of NYC Digital Asset Managers, our membership have grown by over 20% between January 2013 and May 2013 by having 7 meetups in 5 months. Meetups are possible with good content, discussion, marketing, networking and organization. The interest in DAM does exist and it is a matter of people with that interest wanting to get together.
We wish the Midwest Digital Asset Managers all the best.

Henrik, thank you for mentioning our Midwest “Startup” in your blog. Mary is working hard on setting up our first meeting in the Chicago area and we are actively seeking out other Chicago-area professionals (and wannabes) interested in the practice of media management. The NY DAM Meetup team has been a great help while we’ve been working on get this group launched. We have a long way to go to catch up to the NY and SoCal DAM meetups but isn’t that always the Second City challenge?
For those Midwesterns interested in joining, please go to http://www.meetup.com/Midwest-Digital-Asset-Managers/ or search for “Midwest Digital Asset Managers” on meetup.com.
