Organisers of the conference are aiming to provide social and networking events that allow delegates to discover Cardiff’s heritage.

Sharon Heal, head of publications and events at the MA, said: "I am delighted that the conference will be coming to Wales and we want to see content that reflects the cultural landscape of the country.

"The conference panel is looking for big new ideas that represent the topical debates that we have to have as a sector. We also want to see different formats where possible – we’re encouraging off-site sessions to explore Cardiff’s cultural venues and we’ll be looking for session proposals that are challenging, provocative and fun."

Heledd Fychan, advocacy and policy coordinator for Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales, said: "A lot has changed since the MA conference last came to Wales in 1997. We now have our own Assembly and government, and culture is devolved. Heritage is an integral part of Welsh identity and culture, and we are looking forward to welcoming colleagues from across the UK and beyond and showcasing what Wales has to offer."
