The Best in Heritage 2018: Projects of Influence | Croatia


Now reaching its 17th edition, international conference The Best in Heritage 2018 will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on 26-28 September. It is organised by the European Heritage Association (Zagreb), in partnership with Europa Nostra and the International Council of Museums (ICOM).

Conference concept: “Projects of influence”

As the award-giving programmes around the world announced their laureates category by category in 2017, the Best in Heritage diligently collected all the information and generated the annual list of the best practices in the field of museums, heritage and conservation. Out of some 300 prize-winners from 45 award schemes, the Best in Heritage Advisory Board approved a selection of the most innovative and advanced candidates, which were invited to the 2018 conference in Dubrovnik.

Featuring altogether 42 presentations of a wide scope of laureates coming from 4 continents, the conference will, once again, bring authors of the most exceptional achievements together with the professional audience and the public.


The gathering will start with the IMAGINES event, which focuses on the use of New Technologies and Multimedia, and will feature Q&A sessions, 2 keynotes and a “Spotlight” lecture following the theme of 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage. In addition to having an ideal setting for networking with colleagues from all over the globe, the conference will have an abundance of cultural, social and gastronomic events accompanying the programme. The moderators, last year’s winners and the audience will act as a Jury and vote for a project with a truly change-making potential for each of the two events: “The Project of Influence” for the year 2018.

Among the projects that will be presented at The Best in Heritage 2018 are some from ASEMUS member museums, including the Ethnographic Museum of Geneva (which was recognised as the 2017 European Museum of the Year), and National Museums Scotland (which received the ‘Permanent Exhibition’ award in the UK’s 2017 Museums and Heritage Award).
