Survey Report into the economics of touring exhibitions published by the Touring Exhibitions Group

The Touring Exhibitions Group (TEGs) has published the report ‘An Analysis of Touring Exhibitions Practice in the UK’.

The survey, carried out between July and August 2015, received a total of 222 responses from a wide range of galleries and museums and insight from a number of individuals.

The report lists a number of key findings including: respondents place wider benefits of touring - including profile raising and audience development - above the generation of income or offsetting of costs; most long-term experience of touring exhibitions is held by national and local authority museums; and the biggest growth in touring can be seen in independent museums.
