The Denver Art Museum is currently undertaking a multi-year remodel and addition to its 210,000sf Gio Ponti designed North building. This project includes the addition of multiple events spaces including a 650 person ballroom/event space, a learning and engagement center, back office spaces and complete remodel of all the DAM’s permanent galleries.

In September 2014 the Canada Science and Technology Museum (CSTM), as the result of an aging building that was no longer suitable for showcasing Canada’s science and technology collection, closed its doors. The following three years the Museum underwent a complete renovation reopening in November 2017. Six Galleries / Event spaces / Corporate Office space covering 147,000sf. A new Passive Optical Lan along with Wi-Fi, VOIP, IP Gallery Lighting, Digital Signage, and AV.

This session will look at the challenges of implementing new IT infrastructure for the museum of tomorrow during rebuilds or expansion. Panelists will focus on information that can be used by attendees as they tackle similar challenges at their own institutions and will provide a wide range of thoughts and practical ideas for the audience, followed by time for a deeper discussion with attendees during the Q&A period.
