Call for Speakers : Digital Summit

Faced with a global pandemic, museums around the world have pivoted to digital in order to meet the needs of their audiences and to fight for their own survival.

In February 2021 we will be holding a virtual edition of our popular MuseumNext Digital Summit to discuss at what we’ve learnt in a challenging year and to look ahead, beyond the pandemic.

This online museum conference will take place over five days from 22 February 2021, with between one and two hours of digital ideas shared live each day.

Please note: This conference is focused on technology and the digital side of museums.
