    The 3rd Caribbean Conference of National Trusts and Preservation Societies

    The 3rd Caribbean Conference of National Trusts and Preservation Societies will be held in the world heritage city Willemstad, capital of the island of Curaçao. The conference is hosted by the Curaçao Heritage Platform and will be held from November 16th until November 19th.

    Emphasising the importance of heritage and its conservation, we aim at bringing together stakeholders, heritage professionals and enthusiasts in November 2017.

    The Curaçao Heritage Platform invites you to participate in this engaging event, where relevant and compelling topics related to heritage preservation will be explored. We will be diving into the area of underwater and maritime heritage and its impact on societies. Challenging topics, such as the matter of heritage financing will be thoroughly examined.

    Looking at the importance of branding and marketing of heritage, we will be discussing the practices related to improvement of awareness and appreciation of national heritage. Because the only way is forward, we must carefully consider the adaptive re-use of built heritage, the closing theme of this conference.
