2017 marks a year of more dedicated one-on-one support from Widen, more Workshops and Widen community events, and a couple new conferences we’ll be attending for the first time.
We know that our community of customers has great stories to tell, and they’re stories that help other DAM practitioners learn and grow. We’ve made it a point to invite our customers to the table anytime we get an opportunity to speak because their stories help others to understand just how powerful technology can lift your process, connect your teams, and save time, sanity, brain power, and money. We’re proud that our customers are joining us throughout the year!
Check out our 2017 lineup. If we’re lucky enough to cross paths in the coming months, I encourage you to join us for dinner or pop over and give us a high-five or a fist bump. We love it!
