Midwest Digital Asset Managers launches in Chicago

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.

London DAM meetup group started

Thanks to the efforts of Michelle Jouan as mentioned during Henry Stewart’s DAM Europe conference in June 2011, she is taking the initiative to start a digital asset management meetup group in London called London DAM. Michelle hopes for the group to be an informal forum for digital asset managers and others interested in the topic to get together to share ideas and experiences.

If interested in Digital Asset Management in London, you can join the London DAM group on and follow them on Twitter

Michelle is seeking a co-conspirator to run the group. If you are based in London (yes, in the UK) and would like to help run the site and the Twitter feed, find venues and schedule dates, please get in touch with her directly. She is a Digital Asset Management professional and a member of a few of Linkedin groups on Digital Asset Management as well.

This the first meetup group focused on Digital Asset Management outside of the United States. I believe there will be more in the world coming later on this year.

The United States currently has the following DAM meetup groups:

  1. NYC Digital Asset Managers (The world’s largest and the most active
    DAM meetup group, started by Chad Beer and Michael Hollitscher)
  2. Socal DAM (Started by Lilly Taktakian and Roger Howard)
  3. DAM DC (Started by the author of this blog and David Lipsey)
