Our 2020 Congress ‘Current Practices and Challenges in Built Heritage Conservation’ was devised to bridge the divide between built heritage and in-situ collections. Since we first started planning in 2019, months of lockdown, uncertainty, reduced travel and social distancing meant we had to bridge not just disciplines, but fissures in the world as we know it. It was inevitable that our Edinburgh Congress would go online - we were thrilled to welcome over 2000 participants online, a truly global audience representing over 89 countries.

Our events experiment with the boundaries of the possible, making us ask new questions about community, sustainability, travel and access, which we expect to shape our thoughts long after coronavirus has passed. However, in other respects we are on familiar ground – presenting the newest ideas in the field, relevant case studies and demonstrating professional excellence to help you learn, share knowledge and experiences, network and develop your own skills.

A Special Thank You
We were delighted to be able to make access to the Congress online free for IIC members this year and this is due to the support of our partners and funders. We could not have delivered such a successful event without the help and support of
Historic Environment Scotland and title sponsor,CXD International . We are also fortunate to have the support of the Getty Foundation and Tru Vue alongside our wonderful local organising partners.
