Description

MCG’s 2017 conference: Museums and tech in a divided world

Don’t miss your chance to hear 18 brilliant presentations, be inspired by some cutting edge projects, and network with local, regional, national and international peers. This year's conference brings together an eclectic and provocative group of speakers who will share practical lessons from their own experience and challenge you to rethink existing practice across the sector. You will come away from this year’s event inspired and re-energised, with a list of ideas to try and conversations to start in your own organisation.

Learn with speakers from organisations including National Museums Scotland, Anne Frank House, Oxford University Museums, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, London Metropolitan Archives, Historic Royal Palaces, National Maritime Museum and a range of universities and digital agencies. Find out more about our speakers – who are you most excited about hearing speak?

We’ve got an action packed programme for Museums+Tech 2017, with some fantastic international speakers lined up to share their experience with you. Discover the secrets of messenger bots for controversial subjects, and explore the workings of fake news with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. Find out about contactless donations, creating powerful visitor experiences, and ask yourself – could my museum host live escape games? You'll learn how museums are using technologies like 3D printing to reach school groups and empower visually impaired visitors. You'll be inspired by the innovative twists on existing technologies and agile experiments – and there’s more on the full programme! As always, our conference is a chance to reflect on the impact of digital technologies on heritage organisations, and return to work with fresh energy and inspiration.

Find out more about the conference programme on the MCG website.

About the Museums Computer Group

Since its founding in 1982, the Museums Computer Group’s events have been an important part of the UK heritage sector. MCG events are an opportunity to learn from experts and peers, and like many others, this event’s theme was partly inspired by conversations between some of our 1700 members on our practitioners’ discussion list. Our events have an excellent track record for featuring a range of emerging and eminent speakers presenting on topics that matter to you now. Come prepared to challenge speakers, ask questions and network in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We will also host an evening event open to all so you can continue the conversations started during the day.

Please note that our events have a Code of Conduct designed to let everyone have a great day.

The ticket refund policy for our events can be found on the MCG website.
