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.

What is a DAM Meetup Group?

Within one year, two DAM professionals have formed a successful DAM Meetup group.

Chad Beer and Michael Hollitscher created NYC Digital Asset Managers on They organize events for those interested in Digital Asset Management (DAM) about every month in New York City. So what is so interesting about this? Over 150 people have joined as members. The meetup sometimes has a waiting list because the events are so popular and space is limited. The topics are intriguing and so are the speakers.

There is a DAM Meetup (also referred to as a DAM Tweetup) scheduled on September 22, 2010 at 7:00 pm. Join us at Cooper’s Tavern inside the New Yorker Hotel. This is the evening before the Createasphere DAM Conference in New York City.

So, what are DAM professionals in other major cities waiting for? They can create their own local DAM Meetup Group as well. Follow the example. Plan one event per month around a DAM topic or just start with a DAM Tweetup for some social time between members of your DAM community. Mention the existence of the Meetup group on email lists (not spam), LinkedIn and Twitter. As long as the group can plan consistent events about interesting DAM topics, the meetup group will grow by word of mouth. That is what happened successfully with NYC Digital Asset Managers and you can do this in your metropolitan area as well.

The unity of DAM professionals can help each other to gain support, share ideas and enrich your knowledge about DAM.  The idea is to thrive with DAM. That can be achieved with the generosity of your time together. Whom else could do this better than other people who understand what we do. You are not alone.  Network together and learn together.

Do you have DAM Meetup Group in your area?

What is a DAM Tweetup?

Before each DAM Conference (at least in Los Angeles and New York City), people schedule an informal gathering for some casual, pre-conference fun and conversation.

Please note, the DAM Tweetup is a non-hosted event with a cash bar. Tweetup is originally organized as ‘Twitter meetup’ in person. Here are the origins of the Tweetup.

I was fortunate enough to attend the first DAM Tweetup at the Tropicana Bar (outdoors) with some great people during the evening just before the DAM LA 2009 Conference.

This time, in New York City, you can tweetup in the lobby bar of the New York Hilton on Wednesday May 19, 2010 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

This evening will just before the DAM NY 2010 Conference.

Whether you are attending the conference or not, this is a great time to meet like-minded people in a casual setting.

Have you been to a DAM Tweetup?

See you there.
