DAM Guru Events Calendar Syndicated On DAM News

Readers may have noticed that we are now syndicating events from the DAM Guru Events Calendar on DAM News (in addition to Tim Strehle’s Planet DAM aggregated feed).  The latest events are included on the sidebar to the right and there is a dedicated resources page with a longer list.  The DAM Guru Programme (DGP) calendar was launched last month and seems to be one of the more comprehensive lists of DAM-related events on offer with contact info and maps to see the locations etc.
