The ASTC Conference Experience

Make plans now for you and your team to be there for the premier global networking and professional development event for everyone who works in and with science centers and museums.

Be inspired by what you discover in the preconference Intensives, be amazed by the ideas you pick up in the Exhibit Hall, be surprised by new ways of looking at your mission and operations, be challenged in sessions presented by people who are passionate about the same things as you, be inspired by the Opening Keynote Presentation, be energized by connections you make in the hallways and over meals and at the parties . . .

Be there.
