The Best in Heritage 2016

In 2015 more than 50 major award schemes from around the world have announced around 300 prize-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. Out of that list of remarkable achievements, a result of long and devoted work of dozens of most accomplished, professional juries, The Best in Heritage has made a selection of the most innovative and inspiring candidates to be presented at the conference in Dubrovnik. They represent a balanced variety of best practices, geographically diverse and accomplished in distinct circumstances and contexts.

This year the Best in Heritage celebrates its 15th edition, which will once again give the featured laureates further, well-deserved attention from an international professional community.

The gathering consists of two events: “IMAGINES” – a one-day event where multimedia and new technology achievements will be presented; and the core event, with a packed two-day schedule.

Altogether some forty-five projects will be presented, with representatives from China, United States, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Vietnam, Russia and Europe taking the stage.

In addition to the global survey of the projects of influence, the conference features rich social and cultural content organised with help from the local partner Dubrovnik Museums, all taking place in the Renaissance city core of Dubrovnik, UNESCO’s World heritage site. All conference venues, the neo-baroque theatre and palaces provide an inspiring and relaxed atmosphere, ideal for networking, discussing potential collaborations and getting to know top-ranking professionals personally.

The conference is organised in partnership with Europa Nostra & the Endowment Fund of ICOM, under the patronage of the City of Dubrovnik. The IMAGINES event is organised in partnership with Meyvaert Glass Engineering. The media partner of the event is the ASEMUS network.

As part of this collaboration, staff members of the ASEMUS member museums are offered privileged, reduced registration fees.
