Another DAM Pre-Conference Tweetup in New York

Join us at the Tweetup* in New York City on Tuesday, June 7, 2011  from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the New York Hilton.

This event is the evening before the start of the 2011 Henry Stewart DAM New York Conference held on June 8 and June 9, 2011.

NYC Digital Asset Managers Meetup group is coming too, so there should be more people than ever this year. Last year, we had a really nice crowd.

I look forward to meeting you there for this social event. Meet like minded-people and talk about Digital Asset Management (DAM). Join the DAM Community in New York City. Ask some DAM questions. Get some DAM answers. Buy a drink. Have some DAM fun. Meet DAM professionals from all over the US and abroad.

*Tweetup is originally organized as a ‘Twitter meetup’ in person. Here are the origins of the Tweetup. Whether you attend the DAM Conference or not, you can attend.  Please note, the DAM Tweetup is a non-hosted event with a cash bar. Twitter account not required.

Are you coming to the DAM Tweetup?
