Go on a journey from the very beginnings of communication to the present day – from pneumatic tube transport to the first telephone to the modern mobile or cell phone nowadays. In the second edition of our new series we want to introduce the limited attendance experience in the Museum for Communication.
Founded in 1872, the Museum for Communication is the oldest postal museum in the world covering over 2,000 years of history. In numerous exhibition halls over several floors participants can learn about the different historic episodes in the field of writing culture, postal history, telecommunication as well as film and television. Entertaining attractions invite the attendees to try themselves. Communicate via smoking signs or have a talk over the can telephone. A special highlight will be the treasury where valuable and famous exhibits such as the famous misprints of the blue and the red Mauritius, or the first telephone developed by Philipp Reis await the visitor.
All limited attendance experiences consist of two parts – an exclusive guided tour through the location and a scientific talk covering interesting actuarial side issues afterwards. The scientific talk in the Museum for Communication will focus on topics of the sections AFIR and LIFE. The detailed topic will be announced in due course on the ICA 2018 website. All delegates interested in the sections AFIR and LIFE who want to get a deeper insight in the field of communication – from the early beginning in the past, over the modern achievements to the exciting future – shouldn’t miss this limited attendance experience.
About the limited attendance experiences: The limited attendance experiences will be held as an alternative to the tours on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and are included in the congress tickets for delegates. After an exclusive guided tour through the venue, the participants can join a scientific presentation covering some actuarial side issues. This experience is limited to a maximum of 50 participants so early booking is recommended
