As the UK’s only touring exhibitions exchange and networking event, TEG’s annual Marketplace is a unique opportunity for exhibition providers and hirers in museums, galleries, art and science centres and other public-sector venues UK-wide to get together to discuss projects and share ideas.
If you've not been to a TEG Marketplace before and are wondering whether to attend for the first time next year, see 'Marketplace: The key date in your diary' in the Spring 2015 issue of Exchange (pages 4-5) for answers to some common questions.
