Petrovich Kennedy commented on the event, “To see the different pieces of the event grow and take hold is inspiring. Our DAMMY audience was sold out. The Digital Asset Management Conference has really found its legs and was beautifully put together by Mary Yurkovic. The Entertainment Technology Expo brought great exhibitors in touch with a strong audience, and we were delighted to meet the content creators and cinematographers who joined us for panels, screenings, and events. In addition, we see our Post Production Master Class as an area where some of the most exciting developments are happening for the industry. All of us on the Createasphere team love working with our New York colleagues and collaborators and look forward to an exciting series of upcoming events there and around the country.”
