Henry Stewart Events' Los Angeles DAM conference is next week (Nov. 14-15). Widen Enterprises is among the sponsors of DAM LA. We hope you can make it out to join us there, or at least follow us on Twitter for event highlights. We'll also be posting the most poignant tweets on this blog in the days that follow.
If you can make it, make sure you find some Widen people and ask about the booklets we'll be offering those in attendance. They're packed with useful information and web addresses (as well as QR codes, if you're into that sort of thing) that give you access to informative white papers, industry news and more.
Conferences like this one are great for getting new information that can inform the streamlining of your organization's digital asset processes. Whether it's a conference, convention, trade show, or seminar, there's ususally something worthwhile to take back home (or to the office) with you. Some of the benefits include:
Learning about innovations – DAM software developments are often announced (or at least explained) at these events. That makes conferences like this good opportunities to ensure you're ahead of the curve, rather than being left behind.
Building your DAM knowledge base – There are history experts and carpentry experts, but like so many other technologies, DAM software moves too fast for anyone to keep up so well that they can be called "expert"—there's always more to learn. Still, there are leaders, so make sure you capitalize on contact with them at these things by asking them questions that are immediately actionable and give you a view into the future of DAM.
Here are some special notes about this event:
- Widen Customer, Lance White of Corinthian Colleges Inc. will be speaking on a panel titled "Lessons learned from our Procurement and Implementation Process" at 4:10 on Day 1.
- The conference will be followed by tutorials lead by Theresa Regli of The Real Story Group on "Fundamentals of DAM: The Technology In-Depth"...
- and metadata sessions by John Horodyski of DAM Education on "Fundamentals of Metadata for DAM Professionals" and "Advanced Metadata Practices for DAM". More on that here.
