Based at the historic and inspirational Merseyside Maritime Museum at Liverpool’s Albert Dock, this year’s conference has a focus on celebrating and sharing the impact of sporting heritage and the stories it tells, how to engage greater support for the sector going forward, and how to support grassroots collections care and access.
