MuseumNext Conference to return to New York City

MuseumNext will return to New York City in November 2019 for a two day conference in central Manhattan. The event will take place on 7 – 8 November in the Financial District.

With one track, two days, 14 speakers and 200 attendees, expect actionable insights for your work — right at the heart of the world’s most exciting city.

The theme for MuseumNext New York is ‘the Future of Museum Storytelling’ and we’re excited to announce our first keynote speaker, Seth Godin.

Seth is the bestselling author of 19 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages.

He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip and Purple Cow.

MuseumNext founder Jim Richardson said, ‘We’re excited to have one of the world’s most creative thinkers share his views on the future of museum storytelling. This will not be museums as usual and you don’t want to miss it.’

New York Museum Conference

This will be the fifth year that the conference has taken place in the United States and the third time that the event has visited New York City. Past attendees have had high praise for the event:

MuseumNext is the antithesis of most museum conferences, with a highly curated, high quality program that left me feeling like I’d really heard new ideas…

I loved the intimate feel of MuseumNext and enjoyed the friendly and open atmosphere…

MuseumNext gave me a notebook full of actionable ideas, I loved it… 

MuseumNext New York has limited capacity, with just 200 tickets on sale. As we expect demand to exceed the number of delegates that we can accommodate we are inviting people to apply for pre-registration.
