Event Details

Conference Theme: Operational Sustainability of Adaptive Reuse Heritage Buildings 

 


 

Conference Overview

For the third time in the past five years, RICS explores the social values of preservation of heritage assets to the community and society through the 'International Heritage Conservation Conference'. This is an increasingly important topic given the need for many cities (and Hong Kong especially) to re-vitalise old buildings amid limited land supply and concerns about cultural preservation.

In 2019, this two-day conference will bring together leading professionals from public, private and education sectors to share case studies on several iconic heritage projects in the region. Experts will also discuss an array of topics including heritage revitalisation policy changes, commercial viability, best practice, how to achieve long-term sustainability for different use cases, and more.

The conference will conclude with an exclusive guided tour with Q&A of Tai Kwun (formerly Central Police Station compound), one of the city’s most talked-about projects to date, on day two.


 Why attend?

  • Connect with influential business leaders, government officials, academics, and consulting experts.
  • Learn the full scope of best practices and opportunities found in heritage building conservation, including for cultural, educational, commercial and residential use.
  • Understand how ongoing heritage policy shifts and the opportunities they present are relevant to building owners, operators, designers, surveyors and more.
  • Gain unique and direct access to case studies about some of the region’s leading heritage projects and how they overcame their challenges to achieve sustainability.
