Interpret Europe Conference |1-4 October 2021  | #iecon21

Recreating tourism through heritage interpretation

What can heritage interpretation offer to tourism in the post-crisis recovery? How could heritage interpretation help to build stronger relationships within local communities and make them more resilient?

Under the theme ‘Recreating tourism through heritage interpretation’ we will merge heritage interpretation with sustainable tourism in order to offer unique opportunities along the tourist service chain to both locals and visitors.

We are very pleased to announce that the next Interpret Europe conference will be held in Sigüenza, Spain from 1-4 October 2021. Inspiring speakers, hands-on workshops, study visits related to our theme, parallel sessions, a very eye-catching venue and incredible heritage to discover are all guaranteed! Will you be ready to spread your wings and join us?

We will gather in the small town of Sigüenza, in the province of Guadalajara within Castilla-La Mancha region. The town, very close to Madrid, is a mixture of medieval, renaissance, baroque and neoclassic essence, situated between narrow valleys in the region that Don Quixote lived his best adventures and misfortunes. The conference will be hosted at a medieval castle in an Arab fortress: the Parador de Sigüenza.
