Why Attend?

What makes the Digital PM Summit different from other project management conferences, and why should you attend? If it’s your first year joining us, you may be wondering what the Summit is like, and what benefits you’ll gain from attending. Every organization has its own set of challenges, but there are many common advantages to joining us. Here are just a few of the reasons to connect with fellow DPMs in Orlando this year, whether you’re in-house or working at a digital shop.


“DPM Summit is an event I've chosen to attend the past two years because it's great to interact with, get ideas and tips from people who are going through the same day-to-day things I do. The format is relaxed and fun, not stuffy and stiff like some PM conferences…DPM Summit is it!”

— Sonya Johnson, Assistant IT Manager/Project Manager, Duke University


“Conferencing together with colleagues enhances the learnings we get from stepping out of our day jobs. This one was on point.”

— Tara Nicholson, Program Manager at Discovery

A Community That Stays with You

It’s refreshing and inspiring to connect with people who share your same desire to excel and understand what you’re up against. Each year, hundreds of people travel to the Digital PM Summit. Last year, we had project leaders from Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, Italy, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, and 35 states in the U.S. Connect with industry leaders, make new friends and tap into an unparalleled community of support.


Workshops, interactive sessions, Lightning talks & Breakouts

Now in our seventh year, we’ve perfected our programming to give you more hands-on learning, more breadth and depth of topics, more peer-to-peer learning and more opportunities to dig into your thorniest challenges. From process to leadership, business strategy, team management, professional growth and more—you’ll find it all here. Get ready to be inspired, learn and share at this year’s Summit.


Bringing Together the Best in the Industry

Many of the industry’s best have risen through the ranks of the DPM Summit community. This year, we have an action-packed agenda with lessons and knowledge sharing from Agile coaches, Scrum Masters, industry peers and in-the-trenches practitioners from companies including Google, Capital One and Huge. Get a feel for our workshops and find out who’s taking the stage…who knows, it may be you in 2020.


Level Up Your Role, Team & Organization

An organization is only as good as its people—and it’s up to each of us to advocate for the opportunities that will improve the way we lead and contribute to our companies. Break away from the daily grind to invest in a long-term play to boost your teams, projects and company’s bottom line. The Digital PM Summit is about improving your role and career, true. But it’s also an opportunity to venture out, gather the latest trends, tools and resources and bring new learnings back to your team.


Define the Future of DPM & the industry

Most of us fall into project management by accident, or meander over from another career path. Truth is, it’s up to us as a community to shape the future of digital project management and its continued value within the industry. Connect with peers to openly discuss today’s challenges, and help define where DPM will be tomorrow and beyond.


“I left feeling inspired and like I was now a part of a community of amazing, motivated, thoughtful and inviting people. I love this community and the collaborative nature of everyone whom I met and watched present. Thank you for facilitating such a positive event!”

– Jane Swearingin, Project Manager at Lelander


“It was a wonderful experience learning from all walks of DPM, from multiple industries and getting to know others with the same headaches, passions and desires as myself.”

– Michael Currin, Sr. Website Relationship Manager, Vanderbilt University Medical Center
