Associations and international institutions use EXPONATEC as an important expert platform

EXPONATEC COLOGNE (22 to 24 November 2017) has established itself as Europe's leading communications platform of the museum, conservation and restoration segments. With its combination of trade fair and congress, it provides exhibitors and visitors valuable impulses for their work. The exhibition in hall 3.2 of Koelnmesse, with more approx. 160 exhibitors from 16 countries, is accompanied by a first-class supporting programme that offers relevant associations and institutions of the industry interesting lectures and workshops.

For the seventh time in a row, the European Heritage Association is using EXPONATEC COLOGNE as a platform for presenting prize-winning projects and concepts of European museums to a specialist public. Thus, the "Projects of Influence" winners from the event in Dubrovnik of 2016 and 2017 will be presented in the context of the Best in Heritage Excellence Club symposium on 22 November from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. In addition, successful projects with a focus on New Technologies, as well as multimedia of the "Imagine" event, which this year took place for the first time in the context of the conference in Dubrovnik, will be presented. Best in Heritage also offers many more presentations on 23 and 24 November. Here visitors receive insights into the quality standards for current museum, restoration and conservation projects from around the world.

On the occasion of the European Cultural Heritage Year 2018 (ECHY), the German-speaking European restorer associations within E.C.C.O. VDR (Germany), SKR (Switzerland), ÖRV (Austria) and VRKS-ARCA (South Tyrol) would like to shift the focus to the connecting elements in the European cultural region and deepen their cooperation with a joint specialist conference. The conference is planned as a two-day symposium and will take place in the context of EXPONATEC COLOGNE in Cologne on 23 and 24 November 2017. The theme of the conference, 'Trompe-l’oeil − Illusion and reality', deals with a genre of visual arts that makes demands of conservation and restoration in an interdisciplinary fashion. It provides an opportunity to discuss a variety of themes and materials for "deceiving the eye" from many artistic disciplines with inspiring individual solutions.

Our world is no longer conceivable without digitality. It characterises both our work routines and our private lives equally. Digitality opens up possibilities and makes many things much easier, but it is at the same time seductive and influences thought and action. Critical reflection on its benefits is therefore an important basic ability, which people today need to acquire. The ?"Denkmal Digital" (digital monument) seminar of the European monumanr protection association Europa Nostra examines these questions with a view to monument preservation, whereby one area of focus is on questions of the digital distribution and mediation of content, goals and ideas relating to monument preservation. What is the digital monument, and to what purposes do we actually digitalise monument preservation? These are the core questions.
