Annual Conference

AMIA’s Annual Conference brings together media professionals from around the world to address the best ways to preserve and provide access to our media heritage.

More than 600 professionals representing the world’s major media institutions gather each year for AMIA’s annual conference.  Attendees represent all areas of the community-corporate and national archives, media companies, libraries, historical societies, service providers, universities, and more.  Workshops, screenings, and more than 60 sessions programmed by working archivists to address the best ways to preserve and provide access to our media.

AMIA 2021 | November 17-19

Registrations start at $150 for members! We want the conference to be accessible to as many as possible so fees are on a sliding scale and members receive a discounted rate. The categories listed next to “Full Registration” are intended to reflect factors that affect an attendee’s ability to attend the conference. The Supporter Level is for those able to support student and unsubsidized rates — your support assists your early career colleagues to be able to attend the conference! At the supporter rate, $100 of your registration is tax deductible and a donation letter will be sent to you.
