Organized by the Canadian Museums Association, the annual Museums Enterprises Conference will take place in Toronto, Ontario, January 22-24, 2015.
The business of running a museum is becoming an increasingly challenging task. The erosion of public funding means museums and galleries are expected to do much more with less. To find new revenue streams. To make operations more efficient. To compete in an ever changing, whiz-bang world. This complex environment signaled the need for a refocusing of the annual Museum Retail and Visitor Services Symposium. The 2015 Museum Enterprises Conference will cover a broader range of topics, and will arm museum and gallery professionals with insights, information and practical information in addressing these challenges. As always, the crucial industry networking will still be a important part of the Conference so that we can learn more about how we can face these challenges in our unique environments. If you are involved in revenue generation, development/fundraising, retail and food operations, visitor services, human resources, admissions, membership, rentals and special events then this is the Conference for you!
