The Best in Heritage Programm

The Best in Heritage is an international, annual survey of award-winning museum, heritage and conservation projects. Twenty-eight projects from the world, proclaimed the best in the previous year on national or international level, are invited to the conference to present their success stories. In brief, The Best in Heritage displays and celebrates best practices from the field of museums and heritage. The conference is taking place at the end of each September in Dubrovnik, UNESCO World heritage site.

After collecting information on all awarded projects from the past year, and making it available on the project's website, The Best in Heritage Advisory board makes a selection of projects to be invited to take part in the event. The aim is to have a diverse and interesting program offering an insight into innovative practices, successful management approaches, extraordinary professionalism and into present day trends and tendencies.
