Conference Information

World Heritage UK 3rd Annual Conference | 9-10 October 2017

Delegates will hear from some of the most influential Leaders in Heritage before considering the key audiences to target in a series of session themes. It is important that we understand how we can best communicate with ‘Governments and the Public Sector’, talk to ‘Business and Funders’, and address the needs of ‘Young People and Communities’, as well as how we communicate with each other (World Heritage Sites, Europe and the UNESCO family) and with the wider world, including the media.

Confirmed speakers so far include Suhair Khan from the Google Cultural Institute, Duncan Wilson CEO of Historic England, Lizzie Glithero-West, CEO of the Heritage Alliance, Paul Simons, a partner in the Great Spas of Europe, and Judy Ling Wong, President of the Black Environment Network.  There will also be the launch of some new documents and the chance to hear from representatives of the UK’s World Heritage Sites on their wide range of communication experiences. Many more exciting speakers are still to be announced so keep a close eye on the programme here for the latest updates.
