ICOM General Conferences
Every three years, ICOM’s General Conference gathers the international museum community around a theme chosen by the museum professionals.
More than 1,500 experts and museum professionals meet for a whole week to exchange and discuss museum concerns.
The General Conference is based on scientific discussions with ICOM’s International Committees; on administrative sessions during which the General Assembly and the Advisory Committee set up the guidelines of the organisation; and finally, on forums based on the international museum-related events.
The next ICOM 27th General Conference will take place in 2025 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates with the theme, The Future of Museums in Rapidly Changing Communities.
