Calling All Visitor Services & Engagement Professionals…

The Greater Philadelphia Visitor Experience Conference (PVEC) will be held on Monday, October 6, 2014 at the Chemical Heritage Foundation in the downtown, historic district of Philadelphia.

Drawing from the depth of museums and museum professionals in the Philadelphia area and beyond, PVEC, now in its 3rd year, continues to evolve as the field of Visitor Engagement expands and as visitor demographics, needs and organizational goals adapt to changing times. We are excited to announce the theme of the 2014 conference: “From Service To Engagement: Rethinking the Visitor Experience.”

If you are new to the field with fresh ideas, have done institutional research on visitor related topics or are a seasoned employee with extensive experience. We invite you to submit your proposal on a topic related to our 2014 theme!

The following is a list of session topics from previous years:
~Creating a cohesive department on limited funds
~How Visitor Engagement can support a museum’s mission
~The pros and cons of being on the front line
~Where Visitor Engagement finds itself in the organizational chart of an institution
