What others say

This was my first Henry Stewart DAM Conference in my 15-year career of Digital Asset Management and I am so grateful to David Lipsey and the team for the opportunity to connect with other likeminded individuals and gain more knowledge and use the learnings to bring back to my team. Looking forward to what's to come!

HS DAM events are one of the few opportunities to get together with other DAM professionals, speak to multiple vendors, learn, and make connections.

The HS DAM NYC conference was a great way to learn about new developments in the field, compare practices with colleagues, and make new DAM friends and connections. It was awesome!
