An Online Event

What others say

HS DAM events are fantastic as they provide an opportunity to learn more about all things DAM. It is also a great place to meet others in the field.

Jennifer Windels

I have over 10 years of experiences as a DAM, and  I am always looking forward to the Festival of DAM or any other event organized by Henry Stewart. The conferences are always presented by experts of the matter. Anyone interested in DAM should attend.

Jair Hernandez Castillo

HS DAM events never let me down. I always come away with new information or perspectives that hadn’t occurred to me, which, add to my knowledge base and enhance what I am able to contribute in my role at L’Oreal.
