The symposium provided a platform for discussion on the economic and social importance of cultural heritage, mechanisms to facilitate the protection and enhancement of heritage, enhancing the potential of cultural routes, cultural heritage and technology and improving co-operation between international organisations and the public. The event was attended by over 100 participants from across Europe, including national, regional and local authorities, professionals involved in heritage conservation, academic institutions and civic and community groups, who shared their experiences relating to the heritage of European towns.
