Our Cultural Heritage Round Tables began as small, one-off gatherings between Digital Transitions and our clients, as a formal way for us to gather the community’s collective feedback on their experience with our equipment and how we could work to improve it.
Since its inception, the event has grown from a single day at our office to three annual conferences in key regions across the United States. Attendees come from a variety of disciplines and institutions to demo new digitization technology, learn best practices, discuss workflow tips, and network with other cultural heritage professionals.
Each event features presentations by industry-leading professionals, outlining challenging problems and innovative solutions. Past presenters have included experts from The National Geographic Society, The J. Paul Getty Museum, Northwestern University, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art, among many others.
While we stay in constant contact with our clients, these events provide us the chance to spend an entire day listening to the work they are doing, and for them to meet one another, building the collaborative community that we work hard to foster. As such, they have become some of the most important and sought after cultural heritage events of the year.
The 2020 West Coast Round Table will be held March 12th at Pepperdine University in Payson Library’s Surfboard Room, 2nd Floor, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Breakfast and lunch will be provided and participants are invited to a happy hour offsite following the event.
