What is VEX Ed?

In February 2020, we launched the VEX Ed Webinar Series to compliment our annual Visitor Experience Conference with year-round programming. This series will tackle the issues facing visitor serving organizations like dealing with difficult visitors, navigating your career, hiring and training,museum professionals staff engagement, and more! Each webinar will feature a panel of VEXperts from a variety of institutions sharing their expertise and responding directly to issues you raise.
