GENERAL CONFERENCE INFORMATION

The Smithsonian founded the National Conference on Cultural Property Protection 40 years ago. What started as a uniquely Smithsonian event now annually unites participants from museums and cultural properties around the nation and the world. Heritage preservation is our core strength with exemplary skills in security, facilities construction and management, risk assessment, and collections stewardship.

In 2016, approximately 150 guests represented all regions of the U.S., plus Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Qatar. In 2015, a similar number of U.S.-based participants connected with participants from South Korea, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Canada. Viewers also tuned in online from as far as Belgium and Egypt.

Your session ideas, proposals, and hot topics are always welcome. Share your thoughts by email or in online conversation at our website: https://natconf.si.edu.
