National Services Te Paerangi presents the inaugural Museum and Gallery Marketing forum, with support from Museum of Wellington City and Sea.

The 2012 forum ‘Getting people through your doors’ will bring together museum and galleries from across New Zealand to discuss marketing success case studies and marketing strategies for non-profit organisations.

Community café sessions will allow round table discussions of social media, print marketing and signage, managing media relationships and marketing to diverse communities. We invite all participants to bring ideas, challenges, issues and triumphs to share and seek input from sector colleagues.

Participants will also be taken on a tour of a range of Wellington museums to see marketing strategies in situ.
