Program and Sessions


Conference Program

The Association of Midwest Museums and the Illinois Association of Museums are teamed up to develop a diverse and forward-thinking conference program featuring a mix of sessions, workshops, events, and guest speakers. Explore the schedule at a glance and learn more about available sessions, workshops, and evening events.

The AMM-IAM 2018 Conference is held concurrently with the Visitor Studies Association (VSA) Conference at the Hilton Chicago on July 18-21, 2018. The concurrent conferences will share a few key activities, including the keynote speaker and exhibit and resource hall, and will feature parallel tracks of workshops and breakout sessions. We encourage attendees to register for both conferences, to gain access to a variety of professional development opportunities. Special rates apply for dual registrations!
