This meeting, first of its kind, gathered more than 600 museum professionals from the Americas in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from September 2-4, 2015. 

Reimagining the Museum has explored case studies of successful museum transformations by bringing together thought leaders, change agents, and visionaries from around the world, with a focus on the neighboring regions of Latin and North America. Participants shared examples of innovation and cross-cultural collaboration, discussed challenges, and learnt strategies to initiate change.
