Washington, D.C. | May 26-29, 2016
The American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals in the world, and will take place in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington, D.C. This year’s theme will explore museums as places of social influence, and how power, influence, and responsibility shape the work of museums everywhere. The AAM poses the question: How is your museum using its power?
Washington, D.C., provides the perfect backdrop for this year’s theme. According to the AAM, “Our very presence in the United States capital will demonstrate the undeniable power of museums.” In addition to the many monuments and memorials that dot the landscape (which will be abuzz with events for the Memorial Day weekend), Washington, D.C., is also home to 200+ museums—one of the largest concentrations of museums in the world.
Conference sessions can be filtered by track to help you find topics that relate to your job. Tracks include collections management, curatorial practice, exhibit planning, and media and technology.
Inspired by this year’s theme, you’ll hear from influential speakers from within and outside the museum community, including TV personality and correspondent Mo Rocca, as well as author, lecturer, attorney, and political activist, Ralph Nader.
Gallery Systems will be at booth #4087 in the Technology Innovations Exhibition section of MuseumExpo, and we’d love to see you there.
