Beethoven on Tour
To mark Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday in 2020, Deutsche Post DHL Group and the Beethoven House in Bonn have developed the mobile exhibition "BTHVN on Tour", which can be seen in concert halls around the world in 2019 and 2020.
Using original exhibits and high-quality facsimiles produced especially for this exhibition, visitors will be able to gain an insight into Beethoven's life and work using multimedia technology. These include one of Beethoven's original ear trumpets and an original print from Andy Warhol's Beethoven series from 1987.
Because of these irreplaceable exhibits, too, the exhibition logistics must meet the highest demands. The exhibits are packed in specially manufactured transport crates in which they are protected from temperature fluctuations and vibrations. The DHL SmartSensor technology is used during shipping to continuously monitor the fragile items and ensure consistently optimal transport conditions.
In 2019, DHL celebrated its 50th anniversary. The company was founded in San Francisco in 1969 as the world's first express service provider. In 2019, "BTHVN on Tour" focused on traveling throughout the USA to mark the occasion.
