Make connections. Hear from thought leaders. Join the conversation at AAM 2019.
Connect, collaborate, and share practical advice with fellow museum professionals at more than 160 interactive sessions, on topics ranging from collections management and curatorial practice, to education and audience research; from exhibit planning and design to marketing and community engagement.
At the Annual Meeting, you can expect to:
- Network and learn with 5,000 fellow attendees – last year we drew from 48 states, 42 countries, DC and Guam
- Sample the latest technology and solutions from 250+ exhibitors
- Experience the best of New Orleans, from its museums to dining and entertainment
This year’s theme: Dynamic, Relevant, Essential: Sustaining Vibrant Museums.
Today’s museums are re-examining their role and connection to communities in new ways. Our institutions’ long-term viability and financial sustainability is inextricably linked to our ability to be relevant, magnetic, and inclusive.
The 2019 American Alliance of Museums (AAM) Annual Meeting & Museum Expo — May 19-22 in New Orleans — is your opportunity to explore how museums are meeting these challenges head-on.
