AIM National Conference 2015 is fast approaching, so take advantage of the special AIM early bird booking rate which closes on April 17 to book your museum staff, trustees and volunteers places at the conference which takes place this year from June 18 – 20 at the ss Great Britain in central Bristol.
Featuring a packed schedule of informative surgery sessions, topical talks, keynote speeches from some of the UK’s leading cultural experts plus the opportunity to find out how other independent museums are overcoming sector challenges, the early bird booking rate starts at just £45 per day and includes refreshments and a buffet lunch by Bristol harbour.
AIM annual conference attracts hundreds of delegates from the museum sector and is renowned for its friendly, informal atmosphere and inspiring schedule which aims to give you fresh ideas and practical solutions that you can immediately use in your own museum. The conference will also see the launch of the new AIM ‘Hallmarks of a Prospering Museum’ project which has been created to support independent museums of all sizes across the UK.
Further networking and idea sharing will take place at two optional evening social events which include dinner aboard the ss Great Britain on the Thursday evening with supper, music and a treasure hunt in the gothic surroundings of the beautiful Arnos Vale Cemetery on the Friday night. AIM Conference will finish with an optional Saturday study tour to Clifton Suspension Bridge, Underfall Boatyard and the Royal West of England Academy.
The conference venue is within easy reach of local train stations, bus routes and motorways or you can arrive in style in one of Bristol’s famous water taxis with drop off points right outside ss Great Britain. AIM has also negotiated discounted hotel rates for all attendees.
