AAM 2019 Annual Meeting and Museum Expo External Event Page
New Orleans, Louisiana
Venue: New Orleans Marriott & Convention Center
oday’s museums are re-examining their role and connection to communities in new ways. There is a growing understanding that our institutions’ long-term viability and financial sustainability is inextricably linked to our ability to be relevant, magnetic, and inclusive. Digital technologies are refining and improving traditional functions such as ticketing, marketing, and fundraising – in addition to driving personalized experiences and new abilities for museums to connect with increasingly tech-savvy audiences. Innovative partnerships with for-profit companies and within mutually aligned sectors like health and education may provide museums access to the financial and technical capacity to help them scale their work. At the 2019 AAM Meeting and MuseumExpo in New Orleans, we will explore how museums are meeting these challenges head-on. We will learn from each other’s trials and errors and connect with colleagues who can help us grow and tackle our own challenges. //// Also, Exhibit at MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals. Connect with high-level decision-makers such as directors, curators, financial officers, exhibit design professionals, educators and registrars. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet face-to-face with qualified buyers to showcase your new and innovative products and services to more than 5,000 museum professionals seeking cost- and time-saving solutions for the museum field.
