Audio guide devices, coronavirus and hygiene

As I write this, no one knows when the coronavirus crisis will end. But there is one thing everyone agrees on: nothing will ever be the same. One of the most affected sectors is culture.

Sooner or later this unprecedented crisis will be over and museums will reopen. But the sensitivity of the public will have changed. Some habits, such as physical contact when greeting each other, will not be recovered overnight. The increase in hygiene measures will also last, especially if, as some scientists predict, the Covid-19 will still be with us for some years, reappearing in waves.

How to get visitor data for your museum

Have you ever wondered why the flight attendant who welcomes you onto the airplane always keeps one hand behind her back?

It’s not only a polite gesture. The flight attendant isn’t just greeting you, she’s also counting you. In her hidden hand, she’s holding a passenger counter like this one: Clicker Passenger Counter People often discuss how difficult it is to interpret data. But, the other, perhaps bigger struggle, is obtaining data in the first place. As you can see, even with the cutting edge technology airplanes have today, getting a simple passenger count requires yet another creative device.

The same is true for museums. Before you can win relevant insights into your audience and develop a strategy around them, you need to find a discrete tool to obtain the data.
