HS DAM events provide me with the opportunity to network and get a flavour of products and plug ins being used and how people are integrating technology into their DAMs.

HS DAM events are an invaluable opportunity to meet a wide range of DAM practitioners, futurologists, and deep specialists. You'll find parallels in industries you know and new concepts from industries you don't, that will make you question and improve your practice.
