American Alliance of Museums Combines Annual Meeting With D.C.’s Museum Week

By Natalie Dupuis, May 24, 2016

Museum Week DC kicked off May 23 and lasts until May 29, in alignment with American Alliance of Museums’ 2016 Annual Meeting & Museum Expo. Culture vultures can take advantage of Museum Week’s discounts and special events at nearly 20 museums in Washington, D.C., thanks to a one-of-a-kind collaboration between a conference and its host city.

The conference, which takes place at the end of the week at Walter E. Washington Convention Center, will gather more than 6,000 museum professionals and is expected to have a $6.2 million economic impact on the city, according to Destination DC President and CEO Elliott Ferguson.

The meeting and expo will also include a Museum Event Planner Forum, focusing on event planning principles like technology trends, risk management, event designs and the importance of mentorship, all within the specific context of events held in museums.

AAM’s event not only adds value to Destination DC and the professional museum community, it also benefits residents and business and leisure travelers.
