Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums | NEMO conference



Registration is now open for NEMO (Network of European Museum Organisations) Annual Conference "Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums" from 10-12 November 2016 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The conference explores the wide spectrum of the economic value of museums. Looking at the different dimensions of the economic value, we will discuss how museums in Europe can best open up to the manifold opportunities and engage in cooperation with other sectors. NEMO's Annual Conference is a platform for a vivid exchange between the European museum sector and the EU, offering a transnational perspective on relevant matters the museums have to deal with in their every day activities. If you want to connect to your European museum peers and relate to Brussels’ policies and programmes, discuss with us at Karlsruhe Palace, home to the Badisches Landesmuseum since 1919, in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany.

Registration is open until 4 November 2016!
