Corporate Partnerships

Partner with AAM and Engage More Museums

Connect with 35,000 individuals and museums year-round to promote your brand and increase your company’s visibility within the museum industry. Support Alliance initiatives that foster excellence in all areas of museum operations and unify those serving in the field.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is definitely not business as usual. We created resources for the museum field including companies, to help you during this challenging time.

AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo

Attend the AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo, the largest gathering of museum professionals in the world, with 5,000+ attendees from more than 50 countries. Exhibit, advertise, and sponsor, and present your ideas and case studies in MuseumExpo “Talks” and general sessions. You can also help grow a diverse pipeline of museum staff by supporting Annual Meeting scholarships and reduced rate registrations.

During the pandemic, we hosted our first two virtual conferences in 2020 and 2021, bringing the energy of in-person events to virtual. For 2022, we are planning for May 19 – 22 in Boston.

Advocacy: Speak up for Museums

Bring your enthusiasm and participate in the field’s annual Museums Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, where hundreds of advocates gather to bring a unified message to Congress about why museums are essential and the need for immediate economic assistance. Sponsorship opportunities are available, view the list of 2021 Supporters. Due to the pandemic, Museums Advocacy Day was virtual in 2021. We are currently planning for an in-person event in Washington, DC, in 2022.

Promote your brand with an eye to the future. The Center for the Future of Museums produces some of AAM’s most consumed programs, publications, and communications, including the annual TrendsWatch report. Sponsor CFM strategic foresight activities that equip museums to address the challenges of coming decades and the rapidly changing economic, cultural, ecological, political and technological landscapes.
