Inspiring Heritage for All

Heritage Trust Network Conference 2017 'wrap up'

Thank you to everyone who came to our 2017 conference in Hull; either as a delegate, speaker, sponsor, exhibitor or performer. It was a fantastic couple of days (three for some!) full of inspiration, great company, thought-provoking moments, networking and peer support. For those of you who joined us, we hope that you took away learning, new contacts and even more enthusiasm for creating inspiring heritage for all in your projects and organisations.

For those of you who couldn’t make it this time, we hope you get a flavour for next year’s Heritage Trust Network conference! Watch this space.

Some of our delegates also enjoyed the study visit day to South Yorkshire...

We explored Wentworth Woodhouse, Wath Town Hall and Elsecar Heritage Action Zone

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors - without whom we couldn't keep conference fees low for our delegates

Engaging speakers, friendly delegates, useful conversations, time very well spent.

Inspiring. Exhausting! Inter-generational. Inclusive. Buzzing. Networking. Friendly. Innovative.

This was my first time at conference and I was impressed by the range of different speakers and the expertise available to talk to for ideas and support.

That’s a conference wrap! Hope to see you in 2018!
