BAPLA is committed to supporting our community. Our approach considers our members' interests to provide spaces that encourage sharing knowledge, networking, collaboration and engaging discussion. Our events are continually evolving, and we will update here regularly and through our social media networks to keep you informed on what's coming up and when.
As always, our popular virtual events will focus on topics relevant to the image-licensing sector. Our webinars are led by well-known industry experts and speakers and delve into a variety of areas such as copyright, AI in relation to the image industry, Text & Data Mining (TDM), NFTs, Digital Asset Management Systems (DAMS) and more. This year's programme will be further enhanced through new activities that incorporate interactive workshops, courses, drop-in clinics and tailored in-person networking opportunities.
