Historically, the largest DAM specific conference in the world takes place in New York City every year.
Henry Stewart DAM Conferences occur in a number of major cities, however the capital of DAM, like it or not, is still New York City. Hundreds of DAM professionals converge like beehive in Manhattan each year to network and to share ideas for a few days, whether those people are based in the New York City area or not.
On Wednesday, May 6, 2015 there are:
5 pre-conference tutorial sessions (these are extra)
1 pre-conference social meetup with NYC DAM Meetup, the world’s largest DAM Meetup group (this is free of charge)
The actual DAM NY Conference happens on Thursday, May 7 and Friday, May 8, 2015 with:
40+ case studies, presentations, collaborative working sessions and techlabs across 4 tracks
55+ speakers presenting
You can do early bird registration before Friday March 20, 2015 and save quite a bit.
If you use a discount code, before or after March 20, you will save another $100 off registration.
After many requests from the DAM community and over a year of work, the DAM Foundation has created and launched online courses on Digital Asset Management to meet the increasing demand.
Special thanks to Elizabeth Keathley, Mark Davey, some other DAM Foundation board members and other DAM professionals who helped create these online courses. DAM Foundation has launched the first online course in August 2014.
These courses are self-paced. Each assessment is reviewed by a DAM Professional.
According to the DAM Foundation website…
“The first lesson of the five-part Introduction to Digital Asset Management course is offered for free at damfoundation.org. Should participants complete the first lesson and achieve a passing mark from the education committee member overseeing their work, then the opportunity to sign up for the remaining lessons in the course will be offered. The cost of the entire five part course is $360.00 USD, and upon completion participants will receive a certificate from the DAM Foundation, as well as publicity via the DAM Foundation’s social media channels celebrating their accomplishment. The time frame for completed coursework is extended as it is expected that participants are working professionals themselves. Participants will be given six months from the pass mark of the first lesson to complete the coursework for all five lessons. Details of required coursework can be read on the Introduction to Digital Asset Management main page.”
UPDATE: DAM Foundation is no longer active as of January 5, 2017.
We would not have to wait an entire year for the few annual conferences to roll in for a couple days to network with the best in the field. It has become very clear that New York City is the DAM Capital of the world. No other area in the world has more DAM professionals and no other city has more people showing up to DAM specific events than New York City.
In January 2013, the author joined as a Co-Organizer to setup monthly Meetups for the Digital Asset Management community.
We doubled our membership from 300 members back in February 2013 to 600 members in January 2014.
