About the Organizer

In 2012, two dozen studio owners got together to share experiences, ideas and challenges. With that first fateful gathering, the Bureau of Digital—and the Bureau community—was born. Since then, the community has grown to include digital leaders at agencies, in-house teams, product shops and many of the world’s largest companies.

Within the Bureau community, you’ll find support networks built around shared pursuits, passions and goals. Agency owners, design leaders, biz dev and operations directors, digital project managers, this is your community.
