Mob: 07861 259373 ANNUAL OPEN MEETING 2013 17 October 2013 at the Black Country Living Museum, Dudley A Quality Offer? If we wish to raise our profile we need to reshape perceptions of the Midlands as a place to visit and highlight the economic and tourism impact of our organisations. We need a quality offer. This year the WM Museum Policy Forum again joins forces with the Regional Archives Forum to focus on the journey from research to delivery, whether through exhibitions, joint marketing, or collaborative projects. We will look at partnerships, particularly with the academic sector and the links between quality research and high public impact. The Annual Open Meeting is open to service heads and managers working in a museum, archive or library in the Midlands. The day will also highlight key issues and developments for the region and provide an overview of current issues and national agendas. Aims: • To present case studies on projects reshaping the tourism profile of the Midlands. • To highlight the economic and tourism impact of museums, archives and libraries and opportunities for advocacy. • To provide an overview of key issues for museum, archive and library support and development for the Midlands and nationally. What you will gain by attending: • Opportunities for networking, information sharing and exploring potential partnerships. • A chance to have your say on key issues of concern for the museum, archive and library sectors, regionally and nationally. • Food for thought on raising the profile of museums, libraries and archives through identifying tourism impact and economic benefit. Who we are The West Midlands Museum Policy Forum represents the interests of the museums sector in the West Midlands. Our aim is to promote the contribution museums make to cultural and wider agendas, influence policy development and facilitate regional partnerships
