The MSAANZ Executive are excited to share the final programme for the MSAANZ17 Conference, to be held in Sydney in September 2017.

It is shaping up to be another great year, with a team of both local and International speakers, including our Key Note speaker Stuart Hata, A veteran museum store retailer for over 28 years, Stuart Hata has been Director of Retail Operations for the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco since 2003. In this capacity, Stuart is responsible for a multi-million dollar business at
the de Young and Legion of Honor Museum Stores, leading a staff of 40 plus team members.

We are also excited to have Andrew Andoniadis of Andoniadis Retail Services, Oregon USA join our speaker line up. Since 1992, Andrew Andoniadis has specialized in increasing the profits of museum stores and enhancing the visitor experience. He has been a featured seminar presenter at museum conferences throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe.

This year we are also pleased to announce our Inaugural Retail Recognition Awards.  Award winners will be announced during the MSAANZ17 Conference Dinner on the evening of the 21st of September 2017, with entries open to both Member & Non-Member Cultural Institutions. Judging of the awards will involve a banded system of entry – separating venues turning over less than one million dollars  per year and those over one million dollars. For more information on these awards, please see 

We hope you can join us at the Australian National Maritime Museum, on September 20th to share in this great learning experience and join in the fun.
