The European Network of Heritage Fairs (Herifairs®) is the first and unique operative platform for exchange and development synergies between the most prestigious fairs in conservation, restoration and valorization of cultural heritage in Europe, with an open cooperation with other international fairs and events in the world.
OUR MISSION: The mission of Herifairs is to represent and empower the Cultural Heritage sector and to be an influential voice and advocate in promoting the interests of its members at European and international level.
The Herifaris Network opens up to non-European fairs thanks to the structured collaboration with international companies that operate in the enhancement of the world's cultural heritage.
The Middle East fair in Abu Dhabi and the Monumental fair in Mexico City have joined the Network since 2023.
