Dear friends and colleagues,

The wheels of the world have stopped turning the way they used to, mobility is now limited and history is starting a new chapter. WFFMM has decided to shift gears.

This year we will ride the 21st century techniques to bring together all those that have the history of transportation at heart in a 5 day Webinar where we celebrate history by the most modern means.

Experts from around the globe will take you across multiple topics in an interactive set up from the comfort of your home.

Buckle up and get your calenders ready to join the complementary ride starting November 8 until 12 between 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM (CET)*

The first two days will be largely filled by speakers from the USA and chaired by Mark Vargas from the famous REVS Institute. Speakers although largely from the USA cover subjects that have world wide implications.

Day three will be curated by Mariella Mengozzi from Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile di Torino, Micheal Penn Chairman of the World Forum for Motor Museums Secretariat and Wim Van Roy - Vice-Chairman of the WFFMM .

With very exiting speakers covering subjects that will almost certainly provoke reaction from all that find motor car design fascinating.

Day 4 & 5 presents an opportunity to take a look into an often ignored part of transport history contributed by the Far East and of course Japan in particular. Covering many issues peculiar to that part of the world their speakers will certainly give us all a ‘heads up’ with their contributions. Masaki Seki from the Toyota Automobile Museum in Japan and Mark Vargas have curated a selection of fine presenters.

How the World Forum for Motor Museums Works

HISTORY

The World Forum for Motor Museums arose out of a proposal by the late Lord Montagu of Beaulieu and Michael Ware, Director of the National Motor Museum in summer 1988. They proposed a gathering of museum directors and curators that specifically collected and displayed road transport vehicles as their main objective.

The first World Forum for Motor Museums entitled ‘The Way Ahead’ was held at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu UK in September 1989 and was attended by 104 delegated from twenty one countries. It proved to be an outstanding success and all the delegates proposed that the Forum should be held every two years hosted each time by a different museum.

MISSION STATEMENT
