Museums Association Conference & Exhibition 2015, 5-6 November, Birmingham

Only one month to go to get early bird rates

is the largest event of its kind in Europe for museums and heritage professionals. Over 1,500 senior staff discuss the latest issues, discover new practice and meet the world’s leading suppliers and consultants.

The theme for this year's Museums Association Conference & Exhibition is Radical Future. Delegates will have the opportunity to debate and discuss big ideas with colleagues from around the UK and internationally. How will diversity, ethics, funding and cultural value affect what we do and how we operate? There will also be a Diversity Forum with a series of linked sessions that will challenge some of the assumptions and myths surrounding the diversity debate.

Keynote speakers include Darren Henley, chief executive of Arts Council England, Sally Yerkovich, director of the Institute of Museum Ethics in the United States, Peter Luff, chair of the Heritage Lottery Fund and David Fleming, president of the Museums Association and director, National Museums Liverpool.

There are a host of other sessions, practical workshops and training - all developed to facilitate fresh thinking. The social events will give you the opportunity to network with colleagues at Thinktank, Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and Ikon Gallery.

Conference is a vital forum for debate, exchange and networking – join us for the biggest event of its kind in Europe and help shape the future of museums.
