The MSA FORWARD 2023 Retail Conference & Expo is committed to providing a valuable in-person experience, creating as many interactions as possible between vendors and prospective buyers.

“I loved meeting other Museum Retail professionals of all levels. There were Buyers, Directors, Assistant Managers...a little bit of everyone. And they all had unique perspectives and ideas.” – Kacey Bengtson, Cheekwood Estate & Gardens

“The MSA Expo is unlike any other Trade Show you will ever attend. There is a spirit of community and partnership between vendors and buyers that stems from the knowledge that we are all on the same team working to make retail in cultural institutions the best it can possibly be.” – Katherine J. Kornblau, President, KJK Jewelry
