ARCHIVE - THE EXHIBITION SPACE OF THE FUTURE

INTRODUCTION

The conference, The Exhibition Space of the Future, was held on the 9th December 2010 at the Hochhauser Auditorium, V&A Museum, London. The conference was dedicated to the changing face of exhibition at the beginning of this decade.


CONFERENCE OUTLINE

The conference aims to look forward at new designs and techniques, which are currently being used across the world in a number of very up-to-date presentations.

This conference, The Exhibition Space of the Future, addresses a number of topics to provide a comprehensive study for those involved in the design and management of the museum gallery specification process.

Museum gallery specifications pose significant questions in terms of exhibit conservation, aesthetics and security whilst maximising display visibility within environmental constraints. At the same time, advances in technology and design can now offer solutions to meet a wide range of client demands.

Your hosts for the event will be ClickNetherfield, world leaders in showcase design and fabrication, in conjunction with SCHOTT, international specialists in glass and lighting. Experts in their respective fields will support the event with presentations on the key areas of material selection, design, security, lighting and conservation.
