Vision for Heritage – Maritime, Transport and Industrial

Vision for Heritage – Maritime, Transport and Industrial

MHT has been invited to arrange a conference on this date as one of the events associated with the Volvo Ocean Race Stopover in Cardiff.

The conference  will follow up our Liverpool Conference in 2015 focusing again on practical help for those saving and promoting maritime  transport and industrial heritage.

The conference will be held at the Exchange Hotel, the newly refurbished Cardiff Coal Exchange, an historic building where in the late 19th and early 20th centuries the world price of energy was effectively fixed. The magnificent trading hall will be the venue for most of the proceedings but a visit to the Volvo Ocean Race Village will be organised too.
