2018 National Trust Conference: OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS: Heritage as a Social, Economic, and Placemaking Force

OCTOBER 18 to 20 • Fredericton, NB • Fredericton Convention Centre

The 2018 National Trust Conference will explore the transformative power of heritage to help turn places around, galvanize communities, and create fresh options. Bringing together the cutting-edge of heritage thought and practice – in Canada and abroad – the conference will emphasize interdisciplinary insights on such diverse topics as heritage-led development, sustainability, museum/historic site regeneration, and Indigenous heritage.

Opportunity Knocks is inspired by Fredericton, a vibrant mid-sized city renowned for its east coast warmth and charm. Home to one of the first universities in North America, Fredericton also boasts a world-class art collection, a vibrant farmers’ market, and a historic garrison district – all woven into the fabric of a picturesque downtown on the banks of the Saint John River.
