Welcome to the 12th European Congress of Registrars which will take place from 12 to 14 November 2020 at the Strasbourg Convention + Exhibition Centre. 

20 years after the Second European Conference of Registrar held in Paris in November 2000, it is an anniversary that we will celebrate together. It will allow us to broaden the scope of our reflections on the professional challenges that we have to manage and for which we develop specific professional skills. The significant development of cultural institutions and the proliferation of exhibitions in new geographical areas, often with atypical climate, constitute a challenge for heritage conservation.

The circuits of international art fairs, cultural diplomacy, patrimonialization as a vector of economic development and the demands of cultural rights create new responsibilities for the registrars and the heritage professionals with whom they work. Those involved in presentation and conservation respond by creating agencies and universities to train new generations of collection and exhibition managers.

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and rich in many institutions, Strasbourg, is the capital that embodies the fundamental values of Europe (peace, democracy, human rights, dialogue between peoples). The city proposes a diversified cultural offer and develops a lifestyle that we invite you to take part in. I would like to take a moment here to thank you as potential sponsors of this conference. Without your generous support, neither the conference nor our work would be possible.
