Preventive Conservation: The State of the Art

During the last quarter of a century preventive conservation has developed greatly, moving to the centre stage of museum, site and heritage management. The 27th Biennial Congress attracted the best minds in conservation from around the world. Hundreds of people from over 53 countries came together to generate discussion and explored the biggest issues that exercise our field.

The Congress is now over, but you can get a flavour of what happened on our blogs  covering most sessions which you can view here . Many also tweeted about the Congress at #IICTurin2018. You can also watch the whole of our Point of the Matter Dialogue 'Culture Cannot Wait' here.

We were also pleased that XpectralTEK supported two Poster Prizes. The prizes were presented at the Closing Ceremony on Friday 14 September 2018,  further details about the winning posters area available here.

A special feature of this year's Congress was the joint IIC ‘Point of the Matter’ Dialogue on Wednesday 12 September 2018, 11am to 12.45pm - Culture Cannot Wait: Integrating Cultural Heritage First Aid with Humanitarian Assistance in Crisesorganised in collaboration with ICCROM (the International Conservation Centre in Rome). You can read more about the Dialogue on our blog here and we will shortly have a recording of the session available to view.
