Join us this fall for MCN 2024, hosted in partnership with the Spencer Museum of Art at the University of Kansas, as we bring together cultural heritage professionals from museums and historic sites from North America and beyond. Following the success of last year’s conference, MCN 2024 provides an engaging space for museum professionals to connect, share knowledge, and explore the latest advancements in digital technologies for museums.

We’re finalizing the details now, but this year you can expect:

  • Two days of insightful sessions ranging from technical deep dives to illuminating case studies.
  • Networking opportunities to connect with colleagues and build lasting relationships.
  • An evening reception, museum tours, and our signature event, Ignite!
