I was very excited for this field trip, because I have never been to this world renowned museum. We got to speak to Robery Cassetti who is one of the head marketers for the museum, and head of visitor engagement. He talked about consumer behavior strategies and how the museum implements them to bring in more people. Mr. Cassetti mentioned how it took a long time before the museum got widely popular and it took creative, and out of the box thinking before they saw a rise in numbers. Personally I find musems very interesting especially the marketing aspect because they have so many other things to compete with. Mr. Cassetti also mentioned how the museum became more kid friendly which was a very strategic marketing practice. Overall, this week was very fun and I cannot wait for the other presenters and field trips. My favorite part of the week was visiting the museum and seeing the glass blowing exibition!
