Henry Stewart’s Continuing Professional Development Room division are running a webinar: “DAM and its Future for Broadcast, Publishing, Media and Entertainment” on Wednesday 19th September at 9am PT/12pm ET/5pm UK.  The webinar is sponsored by DAM vendor, Harris, but attendees are promised that it is: ‘not a sales pitch’.  There are other end user speakers from HBO, A&E Television Networks and Harper Collins which do suggest this might be a more balanced affair:
