What Happened, Where Next? MDEM Conference 2018

We were thrilled to welcome so many delegates to our sold out celebration event ‘What happened? Where next?’ on the 24th May 2018 at DeMontfort Hall in Leicester.

The day saw a  packed agenda, with the morning focusing on celebrating inspirational case studies and the afternoon looking to the future of museum development and what we can offer museums.
