Museums and Tourism: A Working Relationship - Conference
At the sixth installment of the Museum Conference, museum and cultural professionals from Greece, the U.S. and the UK will examine how museums and cultural institutions can strengthen their role as destinations and be part of sustainable cultural development; how they can improve relationships and form stronger partnerships with municipalities, tourism associations and other stakeholders to expand their visitors; what type of technologies are available to develop a content-driven approach in their marketing strategy; what types of fundraising and development they can pursue based on the tourism model; how international partnerships and touring exhibitions can attract more audiences and also build the country’s tourism brand; and how investing in culture and museums can have a strong economic impact for countries where tourism is one of the top industries.
The conference is under the auspices of the Municipality of Athens and is organized with the support of the City of Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau (ACVB)
There will be simultaneous interpretation into Greek and English. Entry is free, on a first come-first served basis. Pre-registration is required (click Register on the top right corner to register for the conference)
