The Touring Exhibitions Meeting

An international conference and network

The Touring Exhibitions Meeting (TEM) is an international conference, dedicated to bringing together people who develop or present touring exhibitions. Produced and presented by SC Exhibitions, with TEM, we wanted to create the kind of conference that we’ve always enjoyed attending ourselves: a friendly gathering, with an atmosphere like a comic book convention, where there’s a sense of excitement, and people look forward to being there and enjoying the experience.
Networking is an important part of TEM, and each edition has welcomed a diverse range of delegates from across the touring exhibitions world. Among them have been representatives of the touring exhibitions departments of museums and science centres, exhibition developers from the private and public sector, entertainment producers and promoters, and venues including museums, science centres, trade fair and convention centres and urban cultural centres. We’ve also welcomed professionals from the creative industries, as well as suppliers and service providers for exhibitions. By creating opportunities for people to meet and share ideas, through TEM we hope to encourage the movement of exhibitions worldwide. TEM has developed into an international network of likeminded individuals and organisations – our most recent meeting, held in Munich (2017), was attended by 160 delegates from five continents. The next TEM will take place on May 3 & 4, 2019 in Berlin. Bookmark this page, follow us on Facebook and stay tuned for more information.


Your registration fee and the kind help of sponsors keeps TEM alive.

Over the years – in Paris 2012, Berlin 2013, Munich 2014/2017, Istanbul 2015 – TEM has been supported by a large number of delegates and sponsors – people who’ve helped to transform it from a small gathering of 50 delegates into an international conference, attended by 200 delegates from five continents.

Among our generous sponsors have been VIPARIS, Encore Productions, Ophrys, ArtStation, John Nurminen Events, Premier Exhibitions, Grande Exhibitions, Istanbul Exhibition Group, Asisi Panorama International, Italian Entertainment Network, Hisart, Body Worlds, RSF, Imagine Exhibitions, Deutsches Currywurst Museum, Berlin Highlights, Eventim, Amsterdam Expo, JVS Group, EFM, Universal Exhibition Group, GES Events, The Shipping Monster, World Touring Exhibitions, GPS Global, Kaleido Entertainment, Flying Fish and Olympic Park Munich.

If you’re interested in sponsoring TEM 2019, we offer various sponsorship packages. Each provides you with excellent exposure to all our delegates, and we’ll also promote your institution or company on our conference website, in our conference marketing and advertising materials, and in any follow-up activities and information that we produce.
