APT - National Trust Joint Conference Update

Rather than postpone or cancel the upcoming joint conference in Edmonton, Hindsight 2020: Conservation, Disruption, and the Future of Heritage, we are pleased to announce that we have begun planning virtual conference sessions for October 2020.

We are excited about taking the next steps to build a strong virtual conference upon the foundation that has already been developed by our conference team and local committee. A conference with a rich virtual presence opens up tremendous opportunities to deliver compelling online experiences, and to provide our membership with additional platforms to share insights, lessons, and solutions that explore the intersection of technical, design, policy, and community issues. We recognize too that this unique situation may have the unexpected benefit of promoting greater collaboration, connection, and much broader access to the conference, and we are examining the practicalities of combining virtual presentations of workshops and local tours with limited in-person gatherings.

We will keep our members informed about ongoing developments and details through our various communications platforms, and via the conference website. Throughout these extraordinary circumstances, we will endeavor to infuse virtual program sessions with Edmonton’s unique sense of place.

We thank you again for your patience, and we hope that you will join us as we move forward with the next steps.

Gina Crevello, President
