Museums and the Web runs an annual conference in North America and Asia and occasional “deep dives” to sites of digital innovation in the field. MW events explore advanced research and exemplary applications of digital practice for cultural, natural and scientific heritage. Formed by leading professionals from around the world, our community has been meeting since 1997. The products of our meetings and conversations – the MW proceedings, Best of the Web archives and discussion Forum – are an unparalleled resource for museum workers, technologists, students and researchers that now offers free access to over 1,000 papers and videos online and grows every year.

Who Comes to MW?

All kinds of people from around the world come to Museums and the Web. You will find webmasters, educators, curators, librarians, designers, managers, directors, scholars, consultants, programmers, analysts, publishers and developers from museums, galleries, libraries, science centers, and archives – as well as the companies, foundations and governments that support them – at Museums and the Web every year.

  1. Hi, I have just been told by my employer that I have approval to attend the conference in Hong Kong next week. I wanted to purchase the full conference attendance package (including the receptions), but his is no longer available on the website. I was wondering if there was any way I could still purchase this? Failing that, I would still like to attend the receptions – is there any way I can do this with a day passes – I’m happy to pay extra if necessary.

    Thank you for your assistance
