As 2023 draws to a close, industry professionals now look to the year ahead in anticipation of the new innovations poised to become standard practices.

Conversation and consternation has focussed on AI, while still evolving is the visitor experience, new methods of preservation, and the balance of the virtual with the physical.

In light of these potential developments, the Museums + Heritage Awards are calling on industry players to showcase the innovations which carry the conversation forward.

The Innovator of the Year Award celebrates both success and creativity in the sector, and submissions are now open for projects that have the potential to shape the future of the museums and heritage sector.

Industry professionals, start-ups and technology developers are encouraged to submit their product or project, and in doing so find an established platform within the sector and find recognition for their contribution.

Earlier this year Belgium-based Meyvaert took home the inaugural Innovator of the Year Award for its oxygen-free museum showcases, after a public vote.
