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.
In 2010, ICOM’s 22nd General Conference took place in Shanghai, China from 7 to 12 November. The upcoming edition will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 10 to 17 August, 2013.
