We understand that the success of your touring exhibition program can be put down to a few simple factors: open and honest communication; meticulous planning; flexibility; and the ability to adapt quickly. Below are the key services we offer to the industry.

TOUR DEVELOPMENT

We often receive enquiries from cultural institutions who would like to tour one of their permanent exhibitions, or develop a new, outbound touring program. Nine times out of ten, it’s not as simple as packing the exhibition into a box and sending it out the door!  Touring an exhibition around the country or around the world, presents a range of issues generally not accounted for in the design of a permanent install. Most permanent exhibitions can be converted into efficient touring versions however, providing that all necessary factors are addressed.

 

The extensive touring exhibition experience of the team at Flying Fish is critical to our approach to domestic and international touring development. Years of designing exhibition components, producing 3D load diagrams, coordinating international freight, and physically handling exhibitions has given us the skills and technical knowledge to excel in the area of service. Furthermore, we have worked with venues across the globe, giving us the ability to not only design your exhibition as well as manage the operations and production needs of your tour, but we can market and sell your touring offering to our significant client database, spanning 6 continents.
