ATS continues relationship with National Portrait Gallery
ATS has won the contract to continue providing audio and multimedia tours at London’s National Portrait Gallery for a further five years. We are delighted to have retained this contract. We see it as a sign that the work we done there over the last few years has impressed the client, but also that we have a strong relationship with them. It’s those personal relationships with heritage organisations that we pride ourselves on. But this doesn’t mean we’ll just continue to offer the same content as before. Over the next few years we will bring fresh, new equipment and functionalities to the NPG, helping their visitors to engage with portraits in new ways. We plan to develop a smartphone app version of our NPG guide, allowing visitors to explore new functions – what that might be we aren’t yet sure, but it could involve image recognition software, augmented reality and Bluetooth beacons. Alongside this development work we will continue to develop regular audio and multimedia content for the NPG’s permanent collection as well as temporary exhibitions and explore family-focused tours.
