DAM and marketing conferences we’ll be at in 2017

by Melanie Olsen, February 1, 2017

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!

by Nate Holmes, November 2, 2016

Can you make a spider? How about Tinkerbell? R2D2? These are all questions Brian Quinn, a Widen advisor, received while twisting balloons during the welcome reception of the 2016 Widen Summit. With balloon twisting, a live band, canoeing, painting, and laser tag, it’s not your average DAM conference. But that’s all just a bonus to the sessions and conversations focused on helping an already talented group of DAMsters learn more.

We’ve compiled 16 of our favorite photographs of the Widen Summit taken by our pros Mark Pajari and Matt Anderson.
