Call for Speakers


MuseumNext is a global conference series on the future of museums, taking place in the world’s cultural capitals since 2009. It is a catalyst for innovation, transformation and collaboration in museums, galleries and heritage sites.

In February 2019, we will be holding the MuseumNext Marketing Summit in Los Angeles, bringing together marketing leaders from across the United States and beyond.

The conference will share best practice, innovations and ideas to help our diverse community to grow their audiences and have more impact with limited budgets.

We are now looking for speakers for this exciting addition to the MuseumNext calendar with this open call for speakers.

MuseumNext Marketing Summit presentations should be in the form of 20 minute talks, we are interested in opinions, case studies and discussions from museum marketers who dare to be different.

Your proposal may touch on:

  • Museum marketing tactics that work
  • New ideas for connecting with hard to reach audiences
  • How tech is reshaping museum marketing
  • Rethinking museum branding
  • Using events as a marketing tool

If you have another angle on Museum Marketing, please feel free to put forward a proposal.

Proposals for MuseumNext Marketing Summit should be submitted through this Google Form below by November 15th 2018.

Proposals should contain a title, names of presenters, a summary of the themes to be addressed, relevant links as well as a description of the expected learning outcomes.

Past experience and direction from our peer panel tell us that proposals from commercial companies working with the sector will be looked upon more favourably if presented with a museum.

Conference speakers will receive free tickets for the event, but we unfortunately can’t cover travel or hotel expenses.
