DMLA 21st Annual Conference

Jersey City , Oct. 27-29

Overview

“Best industry event in years” Jonathan Gibson, CAIA Image

We couldn’t say it better ourselves! Last year’s DMLA Conference was great! So what can we do after a year of amazing success? Do it even better!

This year we are returning to the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Jersey City for our 2016 Annual Conference to be held October 27-29, 2016. Located across the river from Manhattan, we will be a short PATH train or ferry ride from the World Trade Center and the heart of NYC.

This year we will build on the momentum generated by last year’s event by adding presentations and panels based on suggestions from members and attendees, as well as changes in the industry, in order to make this year’s meeting even more relevant and informative. Our sessions will be full of meaningful information and we will be increasing the dialogue between the audience and the speakers. The entire event will be held on one floor of the hotel so that your personal meetings and the presentations can be seamlessly attended.

This year’s theme is Reality Reimagined as we examine the digital content industry from all sides to determine what’s really going on and how new innovations are driving new business. What ARE the realities of our industry in 2016?

Those who stayed in the Hyatt Regency last year thoroughly enjoyed the breathtaking views and world-class accommodations of our host hotel. They are offering another great rate of $289* per night for our attendees. Not only is it very convenient to stay at the conference hotel, it helps DMLA reach our room quota. Rooms must be book by 10/5/2016.

We have a stellar line-up of speakers and panelists lined-up so far for this year’s conference. DMLA Conferences are known for our exceptional educational programming:

Advances in Visual Recognition (auto tagging, auto editing and more): Can computers do a better job at key wording and editing than humans? We will explore the latest advancements of visual recognition with those who create them.

Catch Me If You Can: We are at a turning point for how copywritten imagery is published on the Web. Come see how to deter, detect and monetize unauthorized use of your pictures through technology.

Images Are Weapons Of Change: As the saying goes an image speaks a thousand words. Public opinion has been swayed by the photographs from the war front, images of love and acceptance and of events that change how we interact with each other and the world. As we come up to the election this November, it is even more crucial that as image makers and curators we are aware of how powerful our choices are. Join us and hear how art buyers and editors are choosing images to present their clients’ message to this world that changes with each post, click and comment.

Immersive Imagery: Is immersive (360 and VR photos/videos) about to revolutionize the stock photo market? We will explore the technology and its opportunities with experts from all sides: creation, licensing and publishing.

How to buck the trend and grow a successful traditional licensing business, by those who are doing it: Without inventing a new technology, or new business model or cutting prices to nothing, how can a traditional stock photo licensing business succeed and grow in the current market?

Tips, Traps, and Recent Legal Developments Affecting Your Stock Content: Come hear from a panel of legal experts on current legal developments and how they affect you and the stock content ecosystem, including discussions on alternative art forms like graffiti and street art; what constitutes ‘editorial’ use and when it can be problematic; how to handle form agreements that may not fit your specific licensing situations; the current landscape on fair use (or fair dealing) rules; and learn about why you should care about the proposed Copyright Small Claims Court Bill.

Power in Communities: As member driven products and services continue to lead the way, with companies like Uber and Airbnb, what role do these online communities play in the success of a product? Stocksy United CEO and Founder, Brianna Wettlaufer, talks about how to create and cultivate an online community that is healthy, engaged and a driving force for the success of a business. Learn the building blocks of ethics based business and how it relates to creating loyalty in your members and product; and how Stocksy pivoted from crowd-sourcing to shared ownership and collaboration. (short format)

New Business Models: Analisa Goodin, CEO, Catch & Release (short format)

Where Photography Is Headed In 2016: As we all continue absorbing amazing photography in our everyday lives through social media, this awareness continues to drive sophistication and understanding of what makes an amazing photograph. Join us in this panel, where we will discuss the pivot away muted presets and the echo of mobile compositions that have become clichés in a conversation about what’s changed in 2016 and where we’re headed, including: the continued exploration for “realness”, the influence of cinematography from video, and the vibrant colors and a resurgence of film.

Young Guns: What are they up to? NYC based designers, all under 30. What inspires them? Where are they sourcing images? Where do they think stock is heading? How do they use social media for their clients? What are their thoughts on print vs web?

Registration opens on June 15th, 2016. Register early and save with discounted rates. To provide even more benefits, DMLA is teaming up again with Visual Connections to make this a bigger industry event. Our opening reception/party will be held at the close of Visual Connections on Thursday night, October 27th and will include buyers who attended the VC event.

DMLA Talk: Love + Fear

Stock agencies are experts at putting the right image into the right box, we are able to glean from the public mindset keywords that will bring up the “right” images. But are we also the perpetrators of stereotypes? I founded Stock Pot Images to take the fear of the “stoner” out of the ghetto that minority and LGBT groups were relegated out of fear of the “unknown” and love is what drove me to change the public’s view, to legalize and to present the true faces and communities of cannabis.

Transportation

PATH TRAIN

Directly in front of the Hyatt is the PATH Train Exchange Place Station which will bring you right into Manhattan. A quick 7 minute train ride and you will get off at the World Trade Center Station and then walk 2-3 minutes to the Fulton Center Subway station. There you can get the subway to almost anywhere in Manhattan.

For those who wish to take the PATH "direct" to 33rd, you would take the PATH train from Exchange Place one stop in the other direction (towards Newark Penn Station) and transfer at "Newport" to catch a PATH train that will take you into the city and travel up 6th Ave, with stops at Christopher Street, 9th St., 14th St. and 23rd St. and 33rd St.

One-way fare is $2.75. Only pay-per-ride Metro Cards can be use on the PATH train.

PATH schedule for Exchange Place Station

NEW YORK WATERWAY FERRY

Just south of the hotel is the Paulus Hook Waterway Ferry Terminal. From there you can catch a ferry to a variety of destinations including the World Financial Center, Pier 11, and 39th Street. Fares range from $4-$8. Additional information is available by calling 1.800.53-FERRY (33779) or visiting the link below.
