Each year over 200 Widen Collective® digital asset management (DAM) practitioners gather at the Widen Summit to learn, make connections, and have fun.

This year’s event will be no exception, despite the shift from in-person to virtual. We’ve designed a highly-interactive agenda full of sessions that will advance your DAM skills and  inspire new DAM goals. 

Here are a dozen reasons why you should join us October 13-14!

1. No travel required.
The upside of an all-virtual, no-hassle event is that you can participate from anywhere — for free! So invite a colleague (or your whole team) to join you.

2. See other Collective sites in action.
With over a dozen customer stories, presentations, and show-and-tell sessions on our agenda, you’ll be able to learn by example — from others like you.

3. Discuss shared challenges. 
In our roundtables — by topic and industry— you can compare notes with professionals that grapple with similar content needs and pain points.

4. Get a sneak peek at future Collective functionality.
See how the most important trends in content, creative operations, and data have informed the top priorities in our product roadmap.

5. See who wins this year’s Best DAM Contest.
Three customers. One winner. Watch admins from a variety of industries compete for the trophy in this year's Best DAM Contest, and vote for your favorite!

6. Expand your professional network. 
Through a chat stream in each session and one-to-one messaging between participants, you’ll be able to meet new colleagues and build your peer network.

7. Connect with Wideneers.
Widen staff will be available via chat throughout the sessions and will be happy to schedule one-on-one meetings with attendees after the event.

8. Get an update on our fourth round of connectivity research.
This year we’re exploring ways marketers leverage data to create experiences that build trust with their customers. We’ll share a preview of initial insights and opportunities to participate in our remaining work.

9. Find ways to use the Collective to support your remote teams. 
Because remote work is the new normal, tips for using the Collective to support virtual workflows will be woven across sessions and discussions.

10. Stretch your body (and mind).
Start your day with a gentle flow yoga class led by Widen customer success manager — and certified yoga instructor — Betsy Reznikoff. She'll help you prepare for all the Summit activity with sequences that will energize your body and quiet your mind.

11. Leave with actionable goals.
With two days of tips, best practices, examples, and stories, you’re guaranteed to learn new ways to use the Collective in achieving your content and business goals.

12. Enjoy yourself!
Each session is designed to be valuable, relatable, and down-right enjoyable. We’ll even have fun activities to wrap-up each day. 

I have really loved the Summit. I did not realize how great it would be to be with all these people who know exactly what I am talking about...I got some fantastic ideas.
