The Annual Conference takes place 20-22 September 2017 in Copenhagen
Topic of the Annual Conference is “Industrial Tourism: Linking the past with the present and future”.
Industrial tourism is generally regarded as falling into two areas, the promotion of past industry and visits to modern industrial premises. ERIH falls into the first category, presenting sites which evoke the great industries and society of the late 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Although some ERIH sites, such as breweries, are still producing with updated methods they differ from organised visits to active industrial premises with modern production methods.
New technologies and international communication mean that traditional industries are increasingly seen as historic and obsolete, especially by the younger generation. How can we beneficially link the two strands of industrial tourism? How can the continuity of our European industrial heritage be presented to benefit present and future generations?
During the Annual Conference speakers will present examples of good practice and delegates will have the chance to discuss and exchange ideas and experiences in workshops. Besides the Conference on Thursday the 21st September (which will take place in Frederiksveark), we offer an interesting programme with excursions in and around Copenhagen.
