April 9-12, 2008
Montréal, Québec, Canada


MW2008 featured a Museum Professionals' Demonstration Hall on the morning of April 12, 2007. Museum staff members showed sites created in a non-profit environment, and explained the workings behind them to their colleagues.

Informal demonstration sessions were a chance to see many sites close-up and talk one-on-one with colleagues about their designs and the decisions that went into them. The Demonstration Hall was set up in the same manner as the Exhibit Hall. Delegates moved from booth to booth for individual discussions with Demonstrators.
