John Norman

The world’s preeminent museum exhibitions producer was founded as Arts and Exhibitions International in 2003 by John Norman.  Under Norman’s direction the company was entrusted with the most valuable treasures from land and sea including objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun, relics from Cleopatra’s Royal Palace, Princess Diana’s Royal Wedding Gown and the only authenticated pirate treasure in the world. These riches are the heart and soul of the breathtaking museum experiences created by Norman. Each unforgettable experience has mesmerized audiences at the finest art, science and history museums worldwide—totaling more than 30 million visitors.

With more than 25 years of experience in the arts and entertainment industry, Norman has led multi-national teams in the design, production, marketing and sales of museum and fine art traveling exhibitions throughout the world. Prior to establishing Exhibitions International (formerly Arts & Exhibitions International), Norman worked as a tour producer and promoter for Magic Promotions and Clear Channel Entertainment. Norman was responsible for promoting The Magic of David Copperfield, Fleetwood Mac Reunion Tour (1997), Janet Jackson Velvet Rope Tour (1998), national tours for Styx, Pat Benatar, Lynyrd Skynyrd, as well as touring Broadway productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, West Side Story, A Chorus Line, Hello Dolly, and Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance. In 2013, Bizbash, the leading trade media for event professionals, listed Norman as one of the top 50 most innovative people in event production
