Conference Hosting and Sponsoring

Each year the Museums Association of the Caribbean (MAC) hosts a Caribbean-wide conference. The conference is a forum for the exchange of information and ideas amongst museums and cultural institutions in the Caribbean States and other countries where its diasporas are numerous. This page provides information to partner institutions wishing to apply to host MAC’s Annual Conference, as well as information for sponsors wishing to support the conference.
