The Museums + Heritage Show is just six weeks away, and it will be a bumper return to in-person events with a new area dedicated to face-to-face networking and peer-to-peer support.

The Museums Mix area will be led by a wide range of sector support organisations, who will offer their time and expertise to attendees across a wide-range of themes.

Visitors to the Show will be able to use this brand new area to make new connections, gain valuable advice, and even advance their career with Fair Museum Job’s CV Clinic.

Across the two day event, taking place at Olympia in London on 11-12 May 2022, these informal and relaxed sessions are the perfect opportunity to chat with fellow professionals in person , to discuss challenges, share ideas and build relationships.

Returning to in-person networking after two years stuck behind a monitor is a great way to meet new people and make connections across the sector. If you’re a museum or heritage professional, then come along for a packed schedule of talks and exhibitors, and stay for the expert advice.

There will be a total of 10 Museums Mix sessions taking place, running on the hour every hour across the two days.

Networks hosting sessions include by Kids in Museums, the Association for Heritage Interpretation, the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, the Touring Exhibitions Group, Queer Cultural and Heritage Network, GLAM Cares, the Group for Education in Museums, the Association of Independent Museums, Families in Museums, Fair Museum Jobs and the Museums + Galleries Network for Exhibition Touring.

There’s no need to register individually for the talks or Museums Mix – attendees can access everything for free by registering for a single free pass.

The full programme of talks is available here.
