ImageCon 2020: A Digital Experience

Despite our disappointment at the cancellation of our fourth annual ImageCon conference in late April due to the pandemic, we forged on and are thrilled to announce a digital version of ImageCon on Monday July 27 through the 30th, an excellent forum for learning from our customers, partners, and colleagues. The new digital format will deliver much of the same Visual Web-related content planned for April along with new additions, featuring five interactive sessions by renowned experts in the media sector. Each session will be about 30 minutes long, during which you can ask the speakers questions live and “get on stage.” Also, you can watch the sessions on demand afterwards.
