Conferences:

If you want to attend a conference on Digital or Enterprise Content Management, here are the major ones coming up. Of course, this late in the yearly budget, unless you’ve planned for it, getting approval from your CFO may be tough, so make sure to plan for the May 2-3 DAM NY Conference while putting in next year’s budget! It comes from that 300-pound Gorilla* of DAM symposia, Henry Stewart Conferences, and it comes early in the year, before all the C-levels are worried about end-of-year numbers.
