The 17th Biennial Conference and Exhibition is the must-attend event for specialists, managers and leading edge thinkers working in information and technology in the GLAM sectors. It is expected to attract 1,500 participants to Melbourne from 3-6 February 2014.
Returning to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, VALA2014 sets the stage for innovation; promoting the use and understanding of cutting edge information and communication technologies across libraries, galleries, museums and archives.
Our vision is of a future where networks enable almost instant access to digital resources, a world where technology better facilitates business, collaboration, research and learning. In this future filled with big data and big ideas, our cultural institutions have already begun the transformation into places rich in creativity and imagination, where makers, hackers, gamers, crafters and readers are all welcome.
