What makes a successful touring exhibition?
Arnold van de Water, partner at Factorr, offers insight into the opportunities for – and threats facing – the touring exhibitions sector.

These travelling edutainment concepts are far removed from traditional museum exhibitions where visitors merely observe original artworks and read the accompanying information.
Factorr launches a new brand identity, reflecting our new strategy
The story behind our name, our updated visual identity, and the hidden message in our logo... Time for change
When Factorr was founded in 2005, we initially focused on producing large scale festivals and events (concerts and Electronic Dance Music ‘EDM’). Eight years ago, we dived right into the wonderful world of global, touring exhibitions, receiving 1.8 million visitors between 2011 and 2020 (and counting). In 2014, we also started building visitor attractions. Now, 15 years since our start, we’re going to expand our services again, this time with organizational transformations. Why? Because we believe that true magic starts with cross-overs between the corporate world and the arts & culture and entertainment industry! With our services evolving, it was time for a new brand identity.
