Market Your Company to Museum Stores!
Marketing your company to museum stores doesn’t have to be hard–or cost-prohibitive. MSA offers the following benefits and opportunities to reach museum store managers and buyers. If you’re not an Vendor Affiliate yet, download an application (PDF).
Create an online presence
One of the great benefits included with MSA affiliation is Museum Store Marketplace, MSA’s online database that enables museum store buyers to search for products and services by keyword, product category or location.
