IHBC 2021 Heritage MarketPlace
On 18 June 2021, the IHBC Heritage MarketPlace will open virtually to registered school delegates as part of the IHBC Annual School 2021.The MarketPlace stalls will be available from 12.00-13.00 (BST) and 14.00-15.00 (BST).
This learning-led opportunity will allow delegates to explore practice, services and advocacy to suit their own personal and specialist learning priorities. Stalls will offer four 30-minute sessions that incorporate specific learning and networking opportunities. Sessions are designed to help delegates support their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
- Zone 1 (specialist practices and services) includes built and historic environment advice and support services, notably but not necessarily members of the Historic Environment Service Provider Recognition (HESPR) listing of quality assured services.
- Zone 2 (general practices and support services) covers conservation services or support as part of wider heritage-related operations.
- Zone 3 (support practices, services and products) offers service and product providers, advisers, resources and advocates with specific heritage links and interests.
Additional MarketPlace search tools make it possible to organise stall visits by keywords (targeting specific CPDs, practice areas or formats) or geographic regions (including country/city/county/shire or postcode).
