EFM is a globally recognised name to the touring exhibition industry. Working closely with museums, touring promotors and partners, EFM are behind the scenes on many record-breaking touring exhibits. Entrusted by governments and public institutions to move priceless artefacts around the world, EFM are meticulous in the detail. From moving AV equipment and lighting, or large scenic pieces to merchandise, every shipment, routing and clearance is bespoke, tailored to the tour and very importantly, the budget.

Pink Floyd – Their Mortal Remains Exhibition

“We engaged EFM to handle not only the movement of our extensive exhibition (technology, scenic and also artefacts) but also to assist with the management of our catalogue on a daily basis.
EFM were able to coordinate everything from individual lender collections (most of which required specialist handling) all the way through to object casing and condition reporting.
Having the resources and infrastructure that EFM do, together with the global knowledge they have for later in our touring schedule, we know we were in safe hands on this project, as we have been on many previous projects.”
