Traveling Exhibition Meeting and Marketplace [TEMM]

With over four thousand museums and the most important world heritage sites, Italy is a global cultural hub.

Traveling Exhibition Meeting and Marketplace [TEMM] is a format created in 2019, to showcase Italian exhibitions and cultural products to an international audience of industry professionals and facilitate the exchange of traveling exhibitions

Bringing together professionals and cultural institutions looking for partners TEMM is a forum to set standards, define best practices and nurture new collaborations.

This year’s special TEMM edition will focus on the contribution of traveling exhibitions in helping museums, exhibition spaces and producers to overcome the crisis caused by COVID-19. Presenting the initiatives of the most important Italian museums and bringing together international hosting venues producers, exhibition spaces and suppliers, we will face this challenge together by sharing contents, skills, knowledge and defining new and innovative strategies for the development and exchange of traveling exhibitions.

Responding to the current circumstances RO.ME has developed a custom made platform to allow an international audience to virtually experience the latest exhibitions available to tour developed by top Italian institutions and attend workshops. Similarly to maximise the opportunities for attendees to connect with each other and expand their network in this ever changing times, the traditional pre-arranged 1 to 1 format for business meetings has been replaced by informal networking offering more flexibility in connecting with peers and defining an agenda that suits participants’ current needs.

Attendees will leave with a comprehensive tool kit to help them tackle the new normal, an enhanced network and a complete overview of the top exhibitions the Italian market has to offer.

Workshop: Digitisation and web strategy

Which are your priorities on the web? How is your Web Strategy like? Is it effective? Can you improve it?

The Web offers tools for cultural communication and for the enhancement of cultural heritage with new technologies that allow us to imagine new content and new forms of narration, but to evaluate their effectiveness we need monitoring, planning and updating tools. Museums must in fact be able to evaluate the pros and cons of the tools available today in order to decide in which direction to invest, and considering the web strategy as part of the communication plan, consistent with the mission, the visual identity, and the brand. awareness of the individual museum.

The ICOM Italia Digital Cultural Heritage research group, which was founded in 2015 to study and implement tools to support museums in defining their online communication strategy, has created the WEB STRATEGY MONITORING SCHEME (WSS 2019), a tool for analysis the strategic orientation of the Museum on the web that we will analyze and use during the workshop.

Workshop: Museums and digitization in the Covid-19 emergency

The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, a significant impact on the cultural sector. While, on the one hand, the lockdown has prompted governments to adopt measures aimed at providing support to the sector, on the other hand, it has accelerated the digitization process. We will talk about it in a dedicated webinar, with experts in the field, to analyze the main aspects related to the digitization of works of art and museum contents.
