Exhibition news:


RMS Titanic, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Premier Exhibitions, Inc. (NASDAQ:PRXI) , has announced that it will present Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia. Titanic is scheduled to open to the public on November 11th at the Atlanta Civic Center in the recently redesigned exhibition facility where Premier's highly successful, BODIES ... The Exhibition saw an estimated 350,000 visitors this past spring.

Appearing for the first time in Atlanta, this Blockbuster Exhibition, already seen by more than seventeen million worldwide, will present a vast collection of more than 300 artifacts rescued from the ocean floor.

"We have been anxious to present Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition in the city housing our world headquarters for several years and now look forward to giving Atlanta audiences a rare opportunity to experience an important piece of history," stated Arnie Geller, President and CEO of Premier Exhibitions, Inc. "In November all seven of our Titanic exhibitions will be touring around the world while we are once again thrilled to collaborate with the Atlanta Civic Center in bringing Titanic to our hometown."

The Exhibition is a chronological journey through life on board the Titanic and compassionately tells Titanic's personal stories through recovered artifacts and dramatic room recreations. Each visitor becomes a passenger and feels the excitement of that April day as they step into authentically recreated first and third class accommodations, view the Ship's cargo hold and stand on the Captain's Bridge. In the Memorial Room, visitors will learn about the aftermath of the disaster, the relief funds and the efforts to discover who actually survived. Visitors will then feel the temperature drop, learn details of the sinking, touch an iceberg and understand the theories of this tragic tale.

RMS Titanic, Inc. is the only company permitted by law to recover objects from the wreck of the Titanic. The Company was granted Salvor-in-possession rights to the wreck of Titanic by a United States federal court in 1994 and has conducted seven research and recovery expeditions to the Titanic rescuing more than 5,500 artifacts.
