IATM 46th Annual Conference in London

Sunday 24 to Wednesday 27 September 2023

Hosted by London Transport Museum & London Postal Museum

The Post-Pandemic World and the Museum

What contribution must museums make in the post-pandemic society, especially communication and transport museums?

The pandemic period has led to significant changes in visitor behaviour and patterns and has also led many institutions to question and redefine their purpose and role.

Future proof both your thinking and your institution by joining museum colleagues from across the globe to share best practice, discuss current big issues for transport and communications museums and build your network and resilience.

The 2023 IATM conference will look at three significant components for a sustainable museum in the post-pandemic world; relevance to the society around us, the importance of maintaining strong corporate relationships and how you might turn your collections and locations into tangible assets.

All conference delegates are invited to propose 15-minute presentations on these three themes and will have an opportunity to contribute their experiences in working sessions at the conference. We especially invite younger museum colleagues to present their ideas for the relevant museum in a PechaKucha format. Inspire us and apply with a few lines about your idea.

We will be offering a reduction of the conference fee to presenters and also offer support for those institutions to send a second delegate or young colleague.
