In a changing cultural landscape and at a time when the visitor experience is found to be increasingly vital, museums are discovering new and innovative ways to approach retail. Historically, most saw retail as simply a way to sell museum-themed products, now more and more museums are using retail as a tool to tell their stories, connect with audiences, and to combine creativity and commerce. RO.ME Museum Exhibition offers a unique opportunity for discussion and networking on the subject of museum merchandise and sales experiences in bookshops and gift shops of cultural venues. Assortments, innovative sales experiences and new forms of remuneration are the focus of the panel, which is an interesting moment of exchange among important buyers in the sector who will animate a discussion on international best practices.
