HTN Conference 2020 – A Success!

In November 2020 the Heritage Trust Network conducted their first, entirely digital conference.

The theme was ‘Grassroots Heritage: Empowering Recovery’, with a focus on presenting case studies, top tips and practical guidance for HTN members and the wider community.

With many attendees completing the follow up survey after the event, we are delighted to now share the feedback received – that by all accounts, the event was a success!

Key stats:

  • 100% of respondents rated this year’s conference as Fabulous (44%) or Good (56%)
  • 93% of respondents rated the content of the presentations, choice of speakers and workshop choices as Inspirational, motivational and meaningful (37%) or Useful, interesting and well-chosen (56%)
  • 121 people booked a ticket for the conference day on Friday, 98 attended in the morning and 91 in the afternoon
  • From the bookings for the Friday conference: 11 attendees were from Northern Ireland, 78 from England, 26 from Scotland and 4 from Wales. 2 did not share this information.
