Scitech’s international impact

Scitech Media Release, 1 September 2014

Export of Scitech exhibitions recognised

01 September 2014

Scitech in Perth, Western Australia has been selected as one of two finalists in the education category in this year’s WA Industry and Export awards.

The award recognises Scitech’s success in placing its travelling exhibitions into international venues. In the financial year 2013-2014 Scitech placed four exhibitions in three overseas venues that attracted over 200,000 visitors.

“For over 26 years, Scitech has been creating engaging and interactive science exhibitions that travel to international venues following a season at Scitech and a tour of Australian centres,” said Scitech CEO, Alan Brien.

“Scitech exhibitions have appeared in New Zealand, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and will soon premiere in the USA thanks to a new partnership with Atlanta-based Imagine Exhibitions.”

At present Scitech has 11 touring exhibitions covering a diverse range of topics including light, speed, transport, forensics, espionage, dinosaurs and space. The West Perth-based centre prides itself on presenting popular science in a creative way.

“We create exhibitions so they communicate science effectively regardless of cultural differences,” Mr Brien said.

Venues to whom Scitech rents their exhibitions regularly comment that Scitech delivers a product that exemplifies imagination and ingenuity, and guarantees a high level of visitor interaction.

Scitech exhibitions have engaged audiences in a range of environments, from science centres and museums, to art galleries and conference centres.

Scitech is an active member of the international science centre networks in Asia (ASPAC), Europe (Ecsite) and the USA (ASTC) and uses these networks to facilitate the regular placement of exhibitions.

In 2014 Scitech won the ASPAC Creative Science Exhibit award for their Science Fiction, Science Future exhibition and also won this award in 2013 for their Playing with Light exhibition.

“As Scitech enters US market, the appeal of our travelling exhibition product is clear with seven exhibition bookings confirmed for the 2015-2017 period,” Mr Brien concluded.
