The ICEE Annual Conference travels every year to different cultural scenarios around the world providing a unique multicultural and multidisciplinary platform for the discussion of relevant topics related to exhibition development, circulation and exchange. 

 The planning of the annual conference involves working in close collaboration with ICOM national committees, museums, cultural institutions and colleagues in hosting countries to showcase relevant examples of best practices and innovation in the field. At the same time, the ICEE annual conferences provide networking and business development opportunities aimed at developing new collaborations and strengthening current partnerships.
