DAM Event Updates – 29th September 2021


Several noteworthy DAM (and related) events are taking place in the next few weeks.

On Monday 18th October, the Sustainable Brands 2021 conference takes place.  The event will cover regenerative models across marketing and communications, CSR, People and Leadership, Product & Service Design.  The conference is a hybrid of on-line and in-person, with vaccination and face coverings required for the latter – which is likely to be an approach taken by many other events in the forthcoming months.

Better brands are moving past ‘doing less harm’ to drive regenerative models that renew, restore, and grow. Attend Sustainable Brands’ flagship conference for the latest insights to drive better business practices at your organization.” [Read More]

Recent advances make a purely Visual Search possible.” [Read More]

Events can be posted by anyone with a standard DAM News Subscription account (which is free to register).  See the DAM News Events Calendar for more information.
