The GEM annual conference is the landmark CPD event of the year for heritage learning in the UK. Through a combination of inspiring keynotes and practical sessions, GEM conference provides delegates with new ideas, original solutions and strengthened networks. We build a participatory space, by Gemmers, for Gemmers, uncovering new pathways and shining a spotlight on best practice and cutting-edge developments.

GEM conference is a great opportunity to connect with the fantastic heritage learning community, sharing our challenges and celebrating our innovations.  This year we are collaborating with South West Museum Development to learn about the huge achievements in community relationship-building, volunteering and managing limited resources in this area. We are always proud of the uniquely friendly, supportive and positive environment of GEM conference. Delegates create a buzz and leave with renewed passion and concrete next steps, striking a balance between reconnecting with the philosophy of what we do and generating practical takeaways.
