PRESENTATION OF THE FAIR
Created around 25 years ago, the International Cultural Heritage Fair has grown to become not only the oldest but the leading heritage fait in Europe. Since its creation, it has naturally asserted itself as the fair not to be missed by the sector’s stakeholders: professionals from the field of built, non-built, tangible and intangible heritage restoration and preservation.
It bears witness to the diversity of heritage professionals and of their associated skills, and is an opportunity for a vast range of encounters and shared experiences on heritage protection.
A VERY SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HERITAGE PROFESSIONALS
This attractive, friendly and innovative fair draws many enthusiastic visitors (*97% of visitors to the 2016 edition were satisfied with exhibitor quality) who come to discover the great vitality and professionalism demonstrated by its exhibitors.
It also offers a moment’s exchange between visitors and professionals, thanks to the many speakers who combine to offer a programme of 30 conferences and round tables organised throughout the show.
