Museums + Heritage Show 2016: Industry Innovation, Updates and Expert Advice


Last week the Museums and Heritage Show came to London once again, to connect industry professionals and give them the opportunity to share exciting updates and successful projects.

Stand D8 was our home again for the duration of the show and we made sure to show everyone that dropped by, our industry leading range of products. Our wireless charging capabilities went down a treat, as people loved the easy distribution and reduced maintenance of the racks.

Acoustiguide Mobile was the topic of discussion at our talk with the Fitzwilliam Museum - 21st Century Interpretation in a 19th Century Museum – on Thursday morning. We were thrilled with the level of interest in our project (the theatre was over-flowing!) and had lots of questions about the application’s Content Management System and the practicalities of having digital interpretation on-site in Museums.

We also had huge interest in the Ask the Expert section, where people could book appointments for free advice on best practices in audience development, implementing digital interpretation on-site and a range of other issues.

Technical innovation was key for many delegates at the show, with the majority of talks focusing on how it can be implemented for the best visitor experience. Needless to say, the overall belief was that technology for technology’s sake was the wrong way to go – but use it correctly and it can dramatically improve both the level of engagement and the visitor experience on site for the better.


Louisa Matthews, Managing Director of the London Office had this to say about the show:

The Museums & Heritage Show last week in London was a great success for Acoustiguide.  With prominent stand, our sponsorship of the Ask the Expert area and our talk with the Fitzwilliam Museum, we had a great opportunity to share some of our experiences and knowledge.  We met and reconnected with museum professionals who are looking at imaginative ways to improve their digital interpretation and it was interesting to see shifts in priorities, confidence and ambition in the field.


See you all at the Museums + Heritage Show next year!
