Applications are open to pitch your exhibitions or projects at the 2022 Ecsite Conference

From Wednesday, you will be able to submit your applications for pitches for travelling exhibitions, project showcase and hands-on activities.

Submit your pitch for "What's new in travelling exhibitions"

There are two special session slots on the Friday dedicated to travelling exhibitions pitches. In each session, 15 speakers all have four minutes each to present their new travelling exhibition(s).

And what do we mean by new travelling exhibitions? 1) Your exhibition was launched in 2021 or will be launched in 2022, and 2) it has never been promoted at an Ecsite session before, exception made of exhibition which tours were delayed by the pandemic, even if presented at 2021 Ecsite Online Conference.

There will be a maximum of 15 speakers per session and there are two sessions this year. If you would like to submit a pitch, all you need to do is complete this form with the following information:

  • Title of the touring exhibition
  • Start date of the tour
  • If you have presented your exhibition at an Ecsite Conference before, in what year did you present?
  • Short description of the exhibition(s)
  • Username of the presenter

Submit your hands-on activity to the Grand Bazaar

The Grand Bazaar, an informal drop-in session featuring dozens of table-top activities – and their facilitators. This is a special slot on Saturday where you can present your top experiments, hands-on activities and demonstrations. Our aim is to share our best experiences and spice up conference participants lives with new ideas to use everywhere they go.

The ground rules for the Grand Bazaar are that attenders must get to make things, build things, and play with things at each table.

Submit your activity, bring your equipment and engage your peers during this playful session. Claim a slot by filling this form with some basic information on the activity you want to show. We will give preferences to ideas not yet presented at the conference and we exclude commercial product pitches. For the first time this year you will also get a possibility to present your work on live-streamed stage for the remote audience of the conference.
