Event Overview:

As a museum store professional you find yourself doing a balancing act every day, performing a variety of functions and responsibilities. You balance inventory control, staff and volunteer management, merchandising, displays, financial management and even event planning. At the same time you must stay apprised of all that’s happening at your institution - exhibitions, educational programming, the collection and the needs and desires of your executive director and trustees.

The MSA Conference & Expo is designed to help nonprofit retail professionals succeed at this balancing act by offering four days of dynamic learning sessions and opportunities to connect with select MSA vendors who offer products matched with the museum store industry. Learning sessions are presented by the leading thinkers in nonprofit retailing who share the knowledge you need to run your store, meet the needs of management, make the most out of challenges, be a leader and through retailing contribute to your institution’s brand and extend the experience of your visitors.
