Arts Marketing Association Conference 2022 — A New Adventure

AMA Conference 2022 will take place in Birmingham, at the Eastside Rooms, on 14 – 15 July 2022. This year’s theme is ‘A New Adventure’.  Museum Development Yorkshire is providing one sponsored place to regional museums

The AMA Conference will be attended by delegates from across the arts, culture and heritage sector and is for all levels, whether you’re well-established in marketing, communications and audience development or just starting out. AMA Conference sessions are put together to reflect current challenges, to highlight case studies, and inspire new ways of rising to challenges. By bringing people together in the only event of its kind, the AMA helps motivate, upskill and support delegates to make a difference in their work.

This will be the twenty-sixth annual in-person AMA Conference (not including 2 online conferences). Well-known for its excellent programme of speakers and trainers, the AMA Conference also has a great reputation for its social events and networking opportunities, enabling delegates to connect and grow their network.   For more information about the conference, please look at the event webpage
