How MET Studio with Chargeurs Museum Solutions can help restart revenue streams post-lockdown

Turnkey solutions from MET Studio are tailored to help organisations across the cultural sector to maximise the potential of their operations when reopening after lockdown.

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, every museum, attraction and visitor centre will inevitably face challenges in reopening and remaining open over the next few months. As such, MET Studio, as part of Chargeurs Museum Solutions (CMS), is focusing its efforts on assisting all cultural institutions in capitalising existing assets alongside re-planning and reinventing their business models to efficiently restart revenue streams.

The CMS team, made up of award-winning museum and visitor experience specialists, offers a fully integrated solution and service which are specifically targeted for cultural institutions reopening.

The company’s turnkey solutions enable clients to:

  • Safely reopen and restart their business
  • Create a safer environment for employees and visitors whilst maintaining the existing and newly developed narrative experiences
  • Optimise museum exhibition and back of house spaces, instilling trusts in employees and visitors to boost business operations
  • Create employment opportunities – which in turn will help in the nation’s response to the socioeconomic crisis
  • These solutions, Chargeurs states, will not only monetise a museum’s current assets but will also be an asset in helping improve employment opportunities; bringing people back to work to deliver the proposed solutions.
