2012 International Museums & Mobile Survey Now Open!

Museum professionals help shape the future of mobile interpretation in the third annual Museums & Mobile Survey, a collaborative enquiry into the international museum community’s evolving perspectives, use and ambitions for mobile technology tools.

NEW YORK, NY-- (November 10, 2011) – LearningTimes and Pocket-Proof announce that the 2012 International Museums & Mobile Annual Survey for museum professionals is now open. Now in its third year, the Survey is a collaborative enquiry into the international museum community’s evolving perspectives, use and ambitions for mobile technology tools.

The objective of the 2012 International Museums & Mobile Annual Survey is to share the community’s collective experiences and understand trends in this fast-evolving field. The Survey is open to anyone working within mobile technologies and/or mobile experience for museums. Participation is encouraged from any and all cultural institutions, from art galleries to aquariums, and to anyone working in or with cultural institutions around the globe.

"The Museums & Mobile survey has been an important tool for our museum to use in understanding the dynamic changes happening around mobile content experiences,” reports Rob Stein, Deputy Director for Research, Technology, and Engagement, Indianapolis Museum of Art. “It is a critical read for anyone planning mobile projects in museums."

Information from the 2012 survey will not only support ongoing work in the field – but will help define the program for the upcoming Museums & Mobile IV Online Conference on March 21-22, 2012. This will be the fourth online gathering of museum professionals from around the globe sharing their practical experiences in the delivery and management of their mobile interpretation projects.

“Technology is changing rapidly and the annual survey provides unique insight into the realities museums face today in developing and sustaining technology solutions for their visitors,” added Executive Producer Loïc Tallon. “Our ability to mold the Museums & Mobile Online Conference program to what is timely and relevant to museum professionals is key to its ongoing success.”

Attendance at the three prior Museums & Mobile Online Conferences has surpassed 215,000 museum professionals and this year’s event will once again offer online interaction with thought leaders, new case studies and useful tips for successful mobile interpretation implementations. Participants will be able to once again walk away with direct practical knowledge they can put to use immediately at their cultural institution.
