Join us for our first Regional Forum Meetings of 2023!

It was great to meet so many of you at our forums in 2022, and to engage in such lively discussions and inspiring museum visits. We have all felt the benefit of meeting in person, getting out to different places – and connecting with colleagues over a hot drink and delicious bite of lunch!


Bookings are now open for our first round of forums in February and March. Please book early so that we can get all arrangements in place for you.


Like last year, we will keep the focus on “a professional day out” – a chance to catch up with your museum colleagues, get the most out of being at a different and interesting museum, hear some thought-provoking case studies – and gain some fresh thinking and healthy challenge!


Forums usually start with tea and coffee from 10am and introductions from 10:30am. A delicious, complimentary lunch is provided, followed by afternoon refreshments. Meetings usually finish around 3:30-4pm.


Every forum will involve a chance to view and discuss at least one aspect of the host site, hear short case studies from different speakers, and share brief updates with colleagues.


Please note that bookings will close one week before the event so that we can confirm catering and access requirements.
