From Pharaoh to "Product"

An article looking at the organization and finance behind the Tutankhamun exhibition: "The show is produced by three organisations: AEG LIVE Exhibitions, which owns London’s Millennium Dome and is one of the leading sports and entertainment companies in the world; AEI, a private company that organises touring exhibitions, including a recent one about the late Diana, Princess of Wales; and National Geographic, the nonprofit scientific and educational organisation. AEG finances the show, AEI manages production and some of the logistics of the tour, and National Geographic produces related books and films. The three share in the shows’ profits, together with each of the venues and Egypt". See the article for more details.
