This year's theme—Extending the Experience—will run throughout the 2014 conference not only in content, but in the experience MSA has created for you. There are more sessions, the return of boot camp, a plethora of participatory activities, the debut of the MSA Certificate Program, an opening reception to kick off the expo and a new Product Development Gallery for product sourcing. And of course, plenty of time to visit Houston museums and their stores—there are 19 in the Houston Museum District!



  • Find solutions to issues you currently have in your store.
  • Shop an expo with vendors who know your visitors and your merchandising needs.
  • Share best practices with others in the nonprofit retail community.


Museum store managers and buyers are always on the lookout for new and interesting products they can tie to their institutions' collections—products just like yours! The MSA Retail Conference & Expo is the only conference and expo specifically created for retailers at museums, historic sites, botanic gardens, aquariums, zoos, libraries and more.

The MSA Expo features exhibit time over two days offering you valuable networking opportunities while providing you with access to hundreds of qualified prospects. Present your products to hundreds of qualified sales prospects looking to purchase unique merchandise to fill their stores. Use the navigation to the left to get detailed information about booth space and pricing, marketing opportunities, hotel information, the floorplan and more!

NEW FORMAT FOR 2014! An opening reception will be held on Friday evening to kick off the Houston event and then open the expo for shopping! You can mix and mingle with buyers and fellow vendors at a reception and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar before everyone enters the expo hall to start product sourcing!

Also new for 2014, MSA is offering Networking Space as an alternative or addition to the traditional booth space. Exhibitors can reserve space conveniently located on the expo floor to conduct appointments for additional networking. This space is great for exhibitors who do not need to show product, but simply need a place to meet with buyers.
