The Widen Summit is earlier than usual this year — September 12-14 in Madison, WI. We look forward to taking advantage of the warm weather and enjoying time with you on the shores of Lake Mendota at the gorgeous new Edgewater Hotel, where we’ll Discover our DAM Adventure together!
The essence of adventure is to explore the unknown and to discover something you didn’t know before. We’ll lay the foundation so your trip to Madison is full of DAM adventure and discoveries. You’ll meet others in your industry, at your skill level, doing similar things and finding similar solutions to problems surrounding visual content, digital asset management and more.
Besides adventure, the Summit will be chock-full of discovery. You’ll get to network with other Media Collective admins and users, learn from powerful keynote speakers, connect with Widen staff, and get updates on the state of Widen.
Read on to discover the exciting plans we have!
Network and connect with others
The Widen Summit is the place to interact with other DAMsters spanning all industries, roles, and skill levels. There will be opportunities to connect with others in your industry, meet with people interested in similar topics, and engage across skill levels. Formal and informal events are planned throughout the conference. You can pick and choose your own adventure!
Learn the latest from Widen
You’ll get the scoop on the direction for the Widen Media Collective, including updates we’re making to our content marketing software, as well as exciting product developments that are underway. 2016 is a pivotal year for us, and we’re excited to share our roadmap.
In addition to product direction, we have new staff and team additions to share. We’ve reinforced our customer experience management (CXM) team, built a powerful user experience (UX) team, and added a platform team — all to help you connect and carry out your mission to be even more valuable to your organization.
Set up one-on-one time with your Widen CXM

Check out who we have coming to speak
We’re excited about this year’s speakers and hope they can inspire your DAM adventure! Here’s who we have lined up so far:
- Kristina Halverson is the CEO of Brain Traffic, and is widely recognized as one of the country's leading visual content and brand strategists. She regularly engages audiences around the world on how to deliver useful, usable content. Connect her strategies and proven techniques to your own DAM strategy, and see where you can start using your Media Collective to benefit your organization's visual content strategy to a fuller, broader potential.
- Traci Fenton is the Founder and CEO of WorldBlu, a training and leadership organization with a vision to see one billion people working in freedom-centered organizations worldwide. In freedom-centered workplaces, staff feel empowered to make their own decisions. Widen is certified by WorldBlu as a freedom-centered workplace, working under the principles of organizational democracy that WorldBlu established. Traci will end the Summit with a group workshop on The Power Question. What’s The Power Question? It’s simple: What would you do if you weren’t afraid? This question has had a dramatic impact on helping people address fear, get unstuck, think big and move forward at work — and in all areas of life. It’ll be a great way to end the conference and inspire you to use what you’ve learned to make a difference in your workplace.
Adventure, discovery and digital asset management are full of excitement, wonder and possibilities. We look forward to seeing you in September and helping you plan your next DAM adventure. Register now!
