Now at its 26th edition, the ICOM triennial General Conference is one of the most significant global events dedicated to museums and its professionals. Since 1948, an ever-growing number of participants from all continents have been gathering to discuss and share ideas related to the topical issues facing museums. Bringing together more than 4,500 professionals to its last edition, the ICOM General Conference is a worldwide hub that encourages international cooperation in the museum sector.
For the first time in ICOM’s history, ICOM Prague 2022 will explore a new hybrid conference format. The spirit of innovation and resilience that has marked the community outreach programmes of museums around the world has led us to seek new ways of making the conference more accessible, while ensuring the safety of our Members. This year, a digital platform will provide participants not travelling to Prague with full remote access to the scientific programme of ICOM Prague 2022. While preventing all possible obstacles regarding movement between countries, ICOM has chosen to invest in a more balanced and democratic global participation.
