1st World Congress on Maritime Heritage
March 13 @ 8:00 am - March 15 @ 5:00 pm
The First World Congress on Maritime Heritage will chart new ground and create a string of tangible and intangible benefits that flow from this first ever gathering. At the very least the Congress will:
• Promote the interests and value of maritime industries;
• Enhance the attention, visitation, and interests of maritime museums, historic places, and heritage organizations;
• Result in new cross-sector relationships and partnerships;
• Serve as a vehicle for international organizations to better connect communities by demonstrating their historic maritime relationships;
• Illustrate how better understanding our past through the lens of Maritime Heritage will help the world better navigate the future; and
• Reveal heretofore-unknown connections among participants and their past.
