The number of exhibitors has increased by 22% since 2011 and the number of visitors by 10%. This year, the annual venue for heritage professionals will once again bring together 330 exhibitors from over 40 different professions (restorers, raw material suppliers, heritage preservation associations, built heritage companies, schools offering restoration courses, auction houses, etc.).
Exhibitors from worldwide will be represented in the show; countries as Germany, China, Korea, Spain, Japan, Canada, Switzerland, Taiwan, and as a newcomer, Russia.
On the occasion of its 20th anniversary, the show will celebrate transmission with a special program : conferences by experts in the field, public demonstrations of heritage-related skills, award ceremonies, films on transmission throughout the ages and in different cultures, etc.
Transmission is more than simply the idea of passing something on – it is a subject of highly topical interest. Various means of transmission have been set up or developed over the past few years: workshop training for apprentices (a recent effort by public authorities to promote apprenticeship), grants to encourage business transfers, etc. These initiatives all help to preserve our heritage culture and to ensure that exceptional skills will continue to be handed down from generation to generation.
The sector is enjoying rapid economic expansion. With 500,000 jobs, 30,000 of which are directly related to the sector, heritage is playing a decisive social role, in addition to its traditional cultural function.
