Challenges for Museums and Exhibitions
The museum and exhibition industries are facing numerous challenges when it comes to managing visitors’ experiences. Among them are the need to provide an engaging and interactive experience that will keep visitors coming back, ensuring the safety and security of visitors and exhibits, and optimizing the use of resources. Museums and exhibitions also have to keep up with changing visitor behaviors and preferences, including the use of technology and mobile devices to enhance the visitor experience.
