The American Alliance of Museums‘ Traveling Exhibitions Network is administering a new survey exploring interest and intent to host travelling exhibitions.

AAM has announced a new survey, administered by its Traveling Exhibitions Network (TEN). This is aimed at decision-makers on incoming travelling exhibitions for museums, science centres and other cultural organisations.

The survey addresses intent to host incoming travelling exhibitions over the next three years, and the factors behind those intentions.

Interest and intent to host travelling exhibitions

TEN has launched this survey in an effort to support these organisations during the current and upcoming challenges posed by the global pandemic.

Individual answers from museums will be kept confidential, and high-level data and analysis will be shared with the TEN community. Following the survey, the network will be reporting on the trends and patterns that are uncovered. This will allow both producers and host venues of touring exhibitions to gain insight into the current situation and plan their next steps.

To ensure that a copy of the survey results is sent to you, answer ‘YES; on question #2. The survey closes on Tuesday 27 October and TEN would like to thank participants in advance for their contribution. To access the survey, please click here.

Earlier this year, AAM hosted its first-ever Virtual Annual Meeting, featuring expert keynote speakers, useful insights from across the sector and networking sessions for museum professionals.

In April, blooloop spoke to Elizabeth Merritt, VP of Strategic Foresight and Founder of AAM’s Center for the Future of Museums about the coronavirus crisis and its effects on the museum sector.

In addition to this, we also spoke to three leading companies in the travelling exhibitions sector, Imagine Exhibitions, Science North, and Sanders Exhibitions Services, to hear about their strategies for meeting the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and adapting to an altered future.
