denkmal – Leading European Trade Fair for Preservation of Historical Monuments, Restoration and Restructuring of Old Buildings

Europe: Remembrance and New Starts denkmal- Europäische Leitmesse für Denkmalpflege, Restaurierung und Altbausanierung

As Europe’s leading trade fair for historic monument preservation, restoration and the refurbishing of old buildings, denkmal has become the industry’s focal point around preserving our cultural heritage. denkmal’s success is based on its versatility, as shown by a multifaceted range of exhibitors with lively presentations and a complex professional programme. Exhibitors include market leaders and well-renowned brands, crafts enterprises, restorers as well as respected institutions. Numerous joint stands provide information on individual countries and regions, as well as on specific topics.

One distinctive mark of denkmal is its complex professional programme with its international line-up. Over 100 high-calibre conventions, special events, open discussions and expert panels are on offer. Furthermore, many events present best-practice examples from national and international historic monument preservation projects.

Thanks to its multifaceted international orientation and the high degree of respect it enjoys with the sector, the trade fair is the perfect setting for the European Cultural Heritage Year (ECHY). At denkmal 2018 (8 to 10 November on the Leipzig Trade Fair grounds), ECHY will be a decisive and indispensable part of the professional programme and the trade fair as a whole. Plans include an ECHY forum which will host many special events under the motto “Sharing Heritage”. As the central platform for communication used by experts from all over Europe to exchange ideas on current topics, denkmal is the ideal stage for the dialogue around the European Cultural Heritage Year.
