Conference Sponsorship

A BCMA sponsorship will help you increase your visibility and deepen relationships with the BC museum and cultural heritage community. Our conference attracts 120-150 sector professionals, government officials, funders and industry members from across BC and Canada each year. Attending the BCMA conference is one of the best ways to promote your brand and meet sector leaders. A special pre-conference workshop on September 30, 2019 will build upon last year’s sold-out indigenous Cultural Competencies session and will continue a discussion on how museums and First Nations communities can engage in meaningful dialogue and respectful collaborations.
