About this event

Understanding of the reach, importance and meaning of digital assets will continue to deepen – that’s unstoppable. The challenge is to keep up with all the new developments.  Following the success of previous DAM events, Henry Stewart returns to Chicago for the fourth year running. ‘The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media’ – all from the users’ perspective - is designed to help you keep up with the best of new developments in DAM. Assets have value – and exploiting this value is the purpose of our day long conference. Assets help you prosper when they are well managed. Through our keynote presentations, case studies and panels, you’ll get a state-of-the-art understanding of both the “why” and the “how” of digital asset management – all from the point of view of DAM managers and users. 

Shared Experiences 

Our expert speakers – people with hands on experiences in the goals, objectives and issues you encounter on a daily basis – will share their insights, gained from the manufacturing, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, ad agency, university, government and non-profit sectors, as well as from the printing industry and media companies.  We’ll hear innovative ideas about how DAM is quickly evolving from its “one department” origins into an enterprise-wide application.  We’ll learn about the rapidly maturing intersection of DAM with other technologies – with Integrated Marketing Management, with SAP, Oracle and other ERP systems, as well as other collaboration tools.  We’ll see how DAM is driving inventive applications for the iPad and Android tablets and being used in social media campaigns.  And, as always, we work on the building blocks that make for success in DAM – taxonomy, justifying the purchase of a DAM system, selecting the right DAM system for you, trends in compensation, analytics and reporting, and confronting the organizational barriers to adoption.  

DAM MeetUp

We know the value of networking with your peers, so we’ll start this year with an informal “DAM MeetUp” the night before the meeting – and we’ve designed sessions and breaks during the meeting to give you the important chance to meet your colleagues, exchange ideas and insights, and just talk casually.

Join us in Chicago!

Chicago’s motto is Urbs in Horto – Latin for “City in a Garden”.  Let us help you with the digital garden – and harvest the best practices in digital asset management.
