June 22, 2023

Join us for our community-building and networking peer to peer (virtual) experience at our third “Annual Canada Digital Asset Management (DAM) Symposium”. You’ll benefit from showcase presentations by accomplished Canadian DAM Professionals from coast to coast. Interspersed with these presentations are pre-recorded video cameos with Canadian DAM successes and journeys.

Throughout the event, there will be random drawings for "non-door" door prizes drawn from small Canadian businesses working hard to survive the post Covid-era and from throughout Canada. There will be a grand prize drawing for tuition to one Rutgers DAM Professional Certificate Program class at the event's close.

The event is collaboratory brought by The Creative School’s Graphic Communications Management (GCM) program at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) represented by Associate Professor Dr Reem El Asaleh and David H. Lipsey, well known DAM industry leader, Global Chair of the Henry Stewart Conferences on the Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media, and the Co-Founder, Co-Director & Instructor of the Digital Asset Management Certificate Program at Rutgers University and who will be leading the event.
