SESSION 3: Perspectives on Culture Developments in the USA and the Middle East

This session will give an overview of the U.S. and Gulf’s experience economy sectors and the opportunities they offer both to learn from their successes (and failures), and the business insights and opportunities they could offer to suppliers. A focus on museums and the cultural sector will offer the opportunity to delve deeper into these very different geographical cultural economies, and the social and economic factors driving development. The speakers, all with museum and science centre backgrounds both in the U.S. and the U.K., are also well versed not only in the growing cross-over opportunities and competition between culture and entertainment, but in the number of factors needed for cultural projects to be successfully built and then managed effectively.
