The ILE Traveling Exhibitions Forum will be held on Friday, September 23, 2016 from 5:30-7:00pm at the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel and Marina in the Florida Salon VI. This will be a late afternoon event in lieu of the breakfast meeting; we will follow the same format of short 2-minute presentations. Lite snacks will be served, and there will be a cash bar.
An invitation for speakers will be sent out approximately 4 weeks prior to the conference. To be added to the email list to receive the invitation or if you have any other questions about the Traveling Exhibitions Forum, please email us at email@example.com or call (720) 612-7476. The event is free, however, we have returned to the ASTC official program so conference registration is required for attendance at this year's Traveling Exhibitions Forum.
We would like to thank the early, generous sponsors of the Traveling Exhibitions Forum at ASTC 2016: Imagine Exhibitions, The Shipping Monster, MuseumsPartner, Science North,
SC Exhibitions, GES Entertainment, Stage Nine Exhibitions, GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World, and the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago.
There are still opportunities available to sponsor the Traveling Exhibitions Forum at ASTC 2016. If you are interested in sponsoring the Forum, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Tampa!
Informal learning environments—including but not limited to museums, zoos, nature centers, cultural centers, and numerous out-of-school places—give people of all ages the opportunity to be engaged and inspired as they learn about a topic, particularly through their varied interactions with objects and people. Informal Learning Experiences, Inc. supports museums, government and cultural organizations, associations and societies, universities, foundations, and commercial exhibitions in the development of programs and exhibitions as well as effective management strategies that create opportunities for people to connect to their own lives in meaningful ways.
In addition to its broad and effective consulting services, ILE provides a comprehensive list of available traveling exhibitions in its Traveling Exhibitions Database (TED). We share ideas about the informal learning world through articles in the bi-monthly Informal Learning Review (ILR). Each year, we host the Traveling Exhibitions Forum, where we bring together traveling exhibition producers and leaders from potential venues at professional conferences like ASTC and AMM. ILE is a regular participant in and contributor to regional, national, and international meetings and conferences.
