New Website Launches

We are pleased to announce that our new website is now live.

Jason Williamson, chair of TEG says:

On behalf of Touring Exhibitions Group (TEG) I’m delighted to announce that TEG is launching a new website enabling a user friendly approach, comprehensive exhibition searching and a clear pathway to our past and future professional development opportunities. I want to take this opportunity to thank the staff and volunteers of TEG and our website developers Surface Impression for their dedication and determination to ensure this website will serve its users to support touring exhibitions.

Peter Pavement, director of Surface Impression says:

The new website will allow TEG members to showcase their work in a far more useful and engaging manner, helping to foster more opportunities for exhibition creators and exhibitors alike. Creating the new site was a huge collaborative effort by the TEG team and Surface Impression, with graphic design by Catherine Livsey at Warmbread, who provided the lovely illustrations that give the pages such character.

If you are a current active TEG member, please look out for an email advising you of your new log-in.

If your membership payment is pending or you are a lapsed member, you will be able to access the member areas of the site once your subscription is received.

We’d love to hear what you think of the new website.
