Digital PM Summit 2016
San Antonio 10/12-10/15




The Digital PM Summit is two days of engaging presentations, breakout sessions, and lightning talks exploring how we manage digital projects, from a variety of perspectives. No matter the methodology — Agile with a capital A, agile without a capital a, waterfall, or hybrid, we’ll share the secrets of keeping projects moving, keeping clients happy, keeping teams engaged, and keeping budgets intact. You will gain new perspectives, make new friends, and gain access to an unparalleled support system of peers.

The Digital PM Summit also offers an optional workshop on day 3.

We'll update Summit details here as we have them, but also make sure to follow @digitalpmsummit on Twitter.

San Antonio

For the fourth installment of the pioneering event for digital project managers, we're headed back to the great state of Texas to do things big. Join 350 of your fellow digital project managers for three days of insight, conversation, and camaraderie. It's the annual dose of inspiration you've come to depend on.

We'll be situated right in the heart of San Antonio's famous River Walk, a public park open 365 days a year, lined with lots of restaurants, hotels, attractions, and more.
