Hello and welcome to the home of SC Exhibitions on the web. Here you'll find everything you need to know about our touring exhibitions, the events and experiences we’re involved in, our annual magazine Showbiz Culture and our new conference project, The Experience Economy Meeting, which will see its first edition in 2020, in Downtown Los Angeles.
We create exhibitions that travel worldwide, and we host exhibitions in Germany, Austria and German-speaking Switzerland. “SC” stands for Semmel Concerts, the large German live entertainment producer of which we are a division. Semmel Concerts ranks number four worldwide and number two in Europe for ticket sales based on annual ranking of entertainment promoters for the year 2018 by Pollstar magazine, a leading industry publication. We are part of Eventim Live, Europe's leading ticketing and live entertainment company. We are also embedded in a strong international network of museums, science centres, cultural venues, and the creative industries and since 2012 have been hosting our very own convention for producers and hosts of touring exhibitions, “The Touring Exhibitions Meeting” (TEM). This event will adopt a new name and a revamped and refreshed concept as a convention and marketplace in 2020, when it will re-open as The Experience Economy Meeting (TEEM) in Downtown Los Angeles.
367,000 visitors came to see our latest exhibition, “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes”, during its world premiere season at MoPOP, the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle. This exhibition is now open at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia (until early September 2019) and is on its way to break another visitor record. In October 2019 “Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes” will make its Canadian debut at the TELUS World of Science in Edmonton.
More than six million visitors across the globe have seen our recreation of the tomb of the Egyptian boy king Tutankhamun in our exhibitions “Tutankhamun: His Tomb and His Treasures” and “The Discovery of King Tut”, an exhibition concept touring with three units. 2022 will see the 100th anniversary of the discovery of the tomb, and we still have a few slots open in 2021/22.
Every year at Munich’s Olympic Park, from April to September, we host what we call “Summer Exhibition at the Olympic Park”. In 2019 it is the German premiere of “Lascaux: Visual Worlds of the Ice Age”. We are accompanying this project with a series of special events, lectures, and art projects. One of the side projects is the colourisation of historic black and white photosfrom the discovery and excavation of the site.
For more about our projects and our team, check out the regular news from the desk of our director and read our magazine Showbiz Culture. The magazine speaks about our own exhibitions and live entertainment projects but more than that it's a compendium of stunning photography, journeys through our work, and cultural projects from around the world.
Glad to have you on our site!
