Each year, hundreds of museum professionals convene at the AMM conference to network and share valuable information about the museum profession. In 2014, AMM will host a conference in St. Louis, Missouri. St. Louis is a beautiful city and a fabulous conference destination – it’s thriving cultural community has many exciting museums. We’re thrilled to be in St. Louis during its 250th birthday year. The Chase Park Plaza Hotel, which is located across from Forest Park, will serve as the host hotel for the conference.
The 2014 AMM conference will feature outstanding sessions, speakers, and special events, including an opening reception at the Missouri History Museum and the Saint Louis Art Museum. The conference will also include receptions and tours at many of the other cultural institutions in St.Louis, including The Magic House, the Laumeier Sculpture Garden, the Saint Louis Science Center, and the Saint Louis Zoo
More than ever, companies operate in an increasingly competitive market and are challenged to establish important relationships with museums. The AMM Resource Hall provides companies with one of the best opportunities to network and develop relationships with museum professionals. It's a visible way to let conference attendees know about your company, to talk about their projects, and to discuss your company's solutions to their needs. The AMM Resource Hall is an affordable and effective opportunity to showcase your company's products and services — unlike the larger national conferences, the AMM conference presents opportunities for quality contacts and extended "face time" with attendees at a fraction of the cost of the larger shows.
