The American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals in the world.

Our 2017 event will take place at the America’s Center Convention Complex in St. Louis. The Marriott St. Louis Grand is the headquarters hotel and is connected to the Convention Center.

“Going to AAM”–as attending the conference has come to be known–is considered the quintessential experience for museum professionals. The program is jam-packed with opportunities to hear diverse perspectives on a wide range of topics; to connect with your colleagues from across the country and around the world; and to engage in meaningful dialogue with peers from diverse backgrounds and from museums of all types.

There are literally hundreds of reasons to come to AAM’s 2017 annual meeting in St. Louis, but here are 9 reasons you don’t want to miss this meeting!
