Will be held May 4 in New York City.
The first annual, independent Xinet Users Group conference will be held May 4 in New York City. Governed by Xinet users and wholly independent from Xinet, the Xinet Users Group (XUG) was formed in March 2005 and already comprises approximately 1,000 members. Nearly 400 attendees are expected at the all-day conference at Florence Gould Hall in Manhattan.
Panelists from Time magazine, BBDO, Young & Rubicam, McCann Erickson, Ogilvy & Mather and Fortune magazine will discuss digital asset management deployment, the use of XMP metadata, ROI strategies, and integrating Xinet with other products and technologies. Xinet, Adobe, Apple, Quark and others have signed on as conference sponsors to showcase their latest technologies.
"The take-home message of the day is how all these products can change the way you do business by setting the future technology direction for your entire company," says Xinet CEO Scott Seebass, who is delivering the day's keynote address.
In addition to the keynote, conference sessions will include: "Leveraging Xinet Efficiencies," "XMP Metadata: What is the Value?" "Effectively Deploying Asset Management," "Integrating Xinet with Other Technologies," and more.
Conference registration costs $35, and includes lunch and conference materials. (Xinet Users Group: www.xinetusersgroup.org)
