Submit a poster for the 2018 MPMA Annual Conference

We are looking for engaging, innovative, creative posters that address the following issues:

  • Address old issues in new and innovative ways to promote discussion and action
  • Introduce innovative ideas and programs to other institutions
  • Share successful solutions or situations that created the need to rethink and adapt
  • Focus on innovative ways to develop, market, and deliver a museum’s product, build audiences, and strengthening sustainability
  • Reflect the conference theme.

Presenters must be willing to stand by their poster during the Poster Session at the 2018 MPMA conference to offer information and engage in dialog with conference delegates.
