Event Details

The two most important dates on the DT Cultural Heritage calendar every year are our East Coast and West Coast Round Tables. While we stay in touch with our clients year-round, these events provide us the chance to spend a couple of days listening to the work they are doing and the challenges they face.


We’re excited to announce our first ever Virtual Round Table, which gives cultural heritage professionals from around the world the opportunity to connect and learn about the latest advancements in digital imaging technology from the experts! We invite you to join us for a two-day-long event celebrating the cultural heritage industry and digitization.

The online event will be held online on October 15th and 16th. There will be morning and afternoon sessions, each followed by break-out sessions based on the topic. Like our in-person events, you will have the opportunity to view full-length presentations virtually and network with your peers. Your Eventbrite confirmation email will include instructions to complete your registration for the webinar!

This year we will also be hosting a Virtual Happy Hour! An advanced sommelier will join us for a special online beverage and wine tasting. This special portion of our event is included in your general admission ticket.

To reserve your spot and gift for the Happy Hour, you must register by 09/18/2020 separately from your event registration to receive the at-home tasting gift included in your registration. You will receive a unique registration link for the Happy Hour event in your confirmation email. Tasting gifts will ship to the continental U.S. only.  Registrants signing up after this deadline may attend the happy hour but will not receive the at-home tasting gift.

Space is limited for the Virtual Happy Hour, so don’t wait to reserve your spot!
