Every year, the Bureau of Digital invites the Digital PM community to take part in two days of enlightening and inspiring presentations, interactive sessions, and social events that spark new professional connections and friendships. This year’s Digital PM Summit, which also happened to be our fifth, followed through on that invitation in spades.
If you weren’t in attendance, you were missed and we hope you can make it to a future Summit to experience the event and the community first-hand. If you’re looking for some follow-up, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for links to presentations, photos, our favorite tweets, and more.
Nineteen speakers from across the globe joined us in Las Vegas at the M Resort to present their ideas on a variety of DPM topics. Attendees participated in interactive sessions and regional breakout sessions where they broke into groups, discussed the DPM topic du jour, and best of all, shared ideas. There were also a handful of keynote presentations and a panel that simply blew us away with tips, tools, and tactics, as well as a whole lot of validating info about the role.
Links to slides from all of the presentations, interactive sessions, and the workshop are below:
We say it a lot because we mean it: these events would be nothing without the amazing community behind them. It’s all about the people who come and truly participate, take learnings back home, and want to continue the conversations in our Slack channels.
We also made a short video with the help of our community. In case you missed it, check it out now:
A fifth anniversary wouldn’t be complete without party hats and cake! On the first full evening of the conference, we hosted a social event at the Hostile Grape onsite at the M Resort. There was food, drink, and a photo booth complete with a sparkly background and goofy props. Oh, and did we mention that cake? Take a peek at some of the photos:
We Got Social
Five years ago, it was like pulling teeth getting our first-ever Digital PM Summit attendees to join Twitter, let alone tweet! Believe it or not, we had slides practically begging attendees to join twitter and use the platform as a place to connect and share. Five years in and it’s less of a struggle. There was a great level of engagement on Twitter and Instagram at #dpm2017. Here are just a few of our favorite tweets from attendees and speakers:
See You in 2018!
People always want to know where the next event is before we wrap up the current one! Well, that makes us at the Bureau of Digital feel great. While we don’t have a location chosen yet for 2018, it’s on our radars. We’ll be announcing it soon. Until then, add your name to our interest list so we can get in touch with you first.
See you somewhere sometime next year. (That just made every DPM shudder, we know!)
