Mid-Atlantic Chapter

Upcoming Mid-Atlantic Chapter Meeting – October 26-28, 2019

About the Event

This year’s Chapter Meeting will explore new and innovative retail strategies and products. For example, 33% of the American population suffers from a sensory-related disorder or disability.  How do we as museum stores serve this untapped population through our customer service, our products and retail environments?

This and other key topics will be presented and discussed by experts in the field and your colleagues in the retail world. Join us for a weekend that will inspire and grow your expertise and expand your retail sales.

Preliminary Schedule

  • Saturday, October 26: Tours at The Walters Art Museum followed by a Networking Reception in the Museum’s Store and Café after the museum closes to the public.
  • Sunday, October 27: Full day of educational sessions at Hotel Indigo, Silent Auction, and Vendor Sponsor Recognition
  • Monday, October 28: Final education session and the Chapter Business Meeting
