MOT International will be visiting Croatia at the end of this summer, Dubrovnik to be more precise. In an effort to expand the network of museums in our network, we’re going to be visiting “The Best In Heritage” annual conference that’s going to be taking place there. It’s a conference for institutions, museums, heritage and conservation projects that whose goals are very similar to our own. The conference will take place in September this year, 25-27 September to be more precise. We won’t be visiting Dubrovnik at the height of the summer season, but we’ll still try to make the most of the visit.
Team has heard great things about the Split to Krka waterfalls excursion, which we’re definitely be going on, even though Split isn’t that close to where we’re going to be staying. Still, there are many organized excursions from Split so we believe it is worth visiting it. Against the usual advice, we’re going to be mixing business and pleasure. We’re visiting Croatia, it’s hard not to do that. Should you decide to visit the conference, we’re more than happy to meet up with any potential future members of MOT International. We’ll post more updates about the exact dates about the conference, and when exactly are we going to have our 5 minutes of fame.
You should get in touch with our team if you want to schedule a one-on-one with us. We’re here for any interested parties that might be coming to the conference and would like to know more specifics about what exactly MOT does, and how membership in our little organization can help your museum. Hope to see you there. Till then, take care.
MOT International beginnings
MOT was started by a group of technology museum curators from UK, France and Belgium. Technology museums and museums in general have been struggling with low visitor counts for years now, which continue to drop year after year. People just don’t seem to be that interested in museums anymore and we here at MOT have took it upon ourselves to try and make museums interesting again. To do that we’ve come up with several methods and resources for museum curators to use. Seeing how we are technology oriented organization, we decided to use technology as a tool. For example we already mentioned the use of indoor drones for making up short aerial invitational tours of museums. Another project that we are working on is the use of holographic info plates at museum exhibits. MOT was started back in 2014 as a non-profit organization based in Brussels. Since we started our little effort, we’ve expanded our network of museum partners significantly, and every year new museums become proud members of the MOT International efforts.
