This spring, Ideum will be exhibiting at the annual conference of the American Alliance of Museums in enchanting New Orleans. We'll be showcasing our latest hardware products and immersive experiences at booth 1203 in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center May 19-22.
Ideum has a special relationship with the Crescent City. In 2018, we worked with the National World War II Museum in New Orleans to create On the Road with Bob Hope, an exhibit that allows visitors to join Hope's troupe on their wartime journeys through Europe and the Pacific in 1943-44. That exhibit is part of So Ready for Laughter, an installation celebrating Hope's enduring support for American soldiers throughout the War. (We're also proud to be working with the Museum on a new exhibit as part of the 75th anniversary of D-Day this summer. Stay tuned here for details as that project develops.)
We have also just debuted a new exhibit we've been working on in collaboration with The Historic New Orleans Collection. Running on Ideum’s powerful 86" Colossus multitouch table, this interactive experience lets visitors explore the French Quarter's architectural treasures, view and compare photos and maps, and create custom tours through the district's boulevards and byways. When you join us this May, be sure to set aside time for a visit!
Washington, D.C.-based AAM represents a broad spectrum of institutions and museum professionals, and the annual conference presents a uniquely powerful opportunity to explore new technologies and approaches in exhibit development. We are especially grateful that our partner Christie Digital will be joining us—and bringing their new 12-foot LED video wall capable of displaying the brightest, most immersive images in the industry.
We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans! For more information, please contact us at [email protected].
