Museums Marketing & Communications list

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2007

There is a lack of a unique thematic mailing list about marketing and communication in and for museums. The list can also operate as a forum between professional involved in mktg, comm and PR.
There is the PRAM list from the PR and Marketing committee of American Association of Museums that is the most active one, but it is not much aware on the European side.

I also think that it will be useful to create a forum/round-table of museums marketing and communication professionals.

There is the chance to create two version of the list, I waiting for opinion and ideas. One open to all people who can have interest in the field and one more professional oriented, open only to professionals with demonstrable references.

To be ready and concrete, I start to create the list

here the address to subscribe:

Many thanks to all for cooperation.

Bloggers meeting

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Dear museums bloggers, Jim Spadaccini propose to meet blogger at Museums and The Web conference in San Francisco. This will be a fantastic occasion, I’m very sad that I can’t be there, but another occasion will be AAM Conference in Chicago, in May and I will be there.  From AAM Boston, last year, I start the tentative to put together museums blogger with the first list of museums blogs in my blog, this goal was completed by Jim (Jim did you present a paper in Chicago?).

Consider that Museums and the Web is an event more oriented to colleagues inside IT sector, AAM conference is an event more generalist, where there are more people involved and more colleagues that need to be aware about museum blogs. So Chicago will be a good occasion to make more people aware.

But even he could never have imagined how “big,” when he accepts what appears to be a menial job as a graveyard-shift security guard at a museum of natural history.”

Can happen in a museum?

Saturday, May 20th, 2006

Yesterday Apple open doors of new store at Fifth avenue. From the night before people create a line to access to the Apple Store. At 5pm all the plaza was full of people, till 1am there was person in line. Without any advertising, this the force of evangelism…I write early in this blog about importance of evangelism for museums.

Can happen in a museum what happens at Apple Store yesterday? In Boston at AAM Conference I attend a session about PR before grand opening of museums. 18, 7 months of works before the opening, million dollars of expense…
