Join your peers at Collective Imagination

Collective Imagination is back and heading to Washington, D.C.! We look forward to seeing you in person at Gallery Systems’ popular conference for TMS, TMS Collections, and EmbARK users.

From November 13 to 17, Collective Imagination 2023 is taking place at the Royal Sonesta Washington DC, a stylish Dupont Circle hotel. Our five-day event gathers museum professionals (from around the world!) to take part in pre-conference workshops, speaker sessions, networking events, and much more.

Grow your skillset, make connections, and share knowledge with your inspiring peers. Collective Imagination 2023 is the can’t-miss event for collections management. And it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Which registration do I select?

Collective Imagination has separate tracks for EmbARK users and TMS and TMS Collections users. To register, you must choose a registration option in your preferred track.

Registration gives access to the CI 2023 keynotes, speaker sessions, and networking events.

Keep in mind: pre-conference workshops are add-ons and not included with the purchase of Registration.

TMS and TMS Collections users

TMS and TMS Collections users can select Early Bird Registration (ending August 15, 2023), Standard Registration, or Group Registration to attend the conference from November 15-17.

Early Bird Registration offers a $100 discount on Standard Registration.

Group Registration is ideal for museums with multiple attendees. Groups of 3+ attendees are welcome to register under this category. This option offers a $225 discount (per person) on Standard Registration.

EmbARK users

EmbARK users can select EmbARK Registration to attend their full day of user sessions on November 15.

However, EmbARK users interested in the TMS Suite are welcome to register for the entire conference (November 15-17). Please see the TMS and TMS Collections users section for those registration details.
