DMLA CONFERENCE, Marina del Rey Mariott Hotel, 27 – 29 October 2019


The DMLA Annual Conference is back in the Marina del Rey Marriott Hotel, California, from 27-29 October 2019.  After last year’s successful event on the West Coast we’re looking forward to basking in the warm California sun, and enjoying the ocean views, palm trees and red sunsets.  It a great backdrop to North America’slargest  image industry event.

This year’s theme, Navigating Disruption, will immerse you in the hot topics surrounding the digital licensing industry: technology, content, legal, sales and marketing by speakers and panellists primed to share a wealth of information with enthusiastic attendees!

DMLA plans to make your experience even more interactive than ever, with afternoons filled with roundtable discussions led by experts in their fields, on meaty subjects that are key to licensing digital media. You can divide your time networking between the sessions  with your colleagues and participating with like-minded people and visionaries over issues that are pressing for you and your business. We guarantee you’ll leave California more motivated, better educated and more inspired than when you arrived!
