the excellence club

In the 18 years of the existence of The Best in Heritage, we have presented more than 440 projects. To qualify for the invitation to the conference, projects have to be winners of prestigious prizes attributed to them by the professional and other distinguished award schemes. 

Therefore, they were hand-picked among many to be presented in Dubrovnik to the professional audience that comes to listen to and witness their success story, earned by hard work and creativity. It is an informal but real club, - truly the projects of influence, able by the definition of the term, to exercise or cause change. 

The conference does not end in Dubrovnik: the filmed project presentations are gradually added to the existing archive so that the conference is a year round event by the constant access to this precious referential and teaching material.
