The Best in Heritage

27-29 September 2012

Dubrovnik, Croatia |



"The Best in Heritage" is an international, annual survey of award winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. The event is organised in partnership with Europa Nostra, under special patronage of ICOM, under patronage of ICOMOS, ICCROM, IFLA, UNESCO Venice Office, and with support of Ministry of Culture of Croatia and The City of Dubrovnik.

We invite institutions / projects awarded nationally or internationally in the previous year for their achievements. They are all from the field of museums, heritage or conservation and represent a hand-picked choice of public quality and are examples of professional excellence. The original idea of the event proved to be well founded up on the need of different facets of heritage professions to come together. Every year we present over 20 awarded projects usually from 15 to 17 countries. Our conference has lived since 2002 through very successful 10 years.


As you will see from this year's programme ( we will feature 25 projects awarded in 2011, coming from 20 countries. The presenters will have 25 minutes to present their institutions to our motivated audience and will be available for questions. They will elaborate more on their work, methods and creative approach. The conference is well suited to the needs of professionals, be they young or old. They can learn about the most successful projects and meet in person the best among professionals. Such a concentration of recognised, high-quality projects, is impossible to find anywhere else in this form.

The World Heritage City of Dubrovnik in the last week of September is still a lively but not an overcrowded place, the weather being sunny and comfortably warm. As every year, the atmosphere will be dynamic and with many opportunities to develop contacts and forge future partnerships and collaborations.
