The renewal of Museum Connections

Aware of the digital revolution in the cultural industry, Museum Expressions becomes Museum Connections, the major trade show for international museum business. 

From now on, Museum Connections not only covers the whole range of museum shop products, but also new technologies and innovative equipment to promote cultural sites. A new exhibition area and a conference cycle, created in collaboration with Diane DRUBAY, emerge on this occasion.
