Panasonic’s first European Heritage Forum at the Tower of London included some of the biggest names in European heritage including the British Museum, Science Museum, Imperial War Museum, Vatican Museum, National Trust, National History Museum, National Gallery, National Museum of Scotland and the National Museum of Wales. In total, those attending attract approximately 68 million visitors every year.
The event, in October, began with a presentation by MACOM on the connected digital future followed by delegate presentations, where experiences, challenges and solutions were put forward. The day concluded with open discussions and a summary from Panasonic.
“The Forum generated some great discussion and helped us to understand better many of the common challenges and opportunities within the industry,” said John Hardy, Business Development Director of the European Solutions Centre. “This is a very important business sector for us globally and this event allows us to get close to the problems and challenges the heritage sector face today and how they see these challenges evolving in the future, specifically in relation to fully connected digital environment.”
Hardy said this in turn allowed the European Solutions Centre to understand where to focus its technological resource to create the best solutions to overcome these challenges.
Visitor experience was a major focus of the discussion meaning that finding ways of providing useful, easy to use data from integrated systems will be high on the future agenda.
The next event is anticipated to take place in May 2016.
