Introduction

Georgian Group HQAn important part of the Uk’s built environment, the heritage sector is responsible for preserving and maintaining the UK’s 6million pre 1919 period and listed buildings.

Grand stately home or humble Victorian cottage, these traditionally built properties all require specialist knowledge, expertise and appropriate products for their restoration, conservation and maintenance.

With 1000’s of heritage organisations, special interest groups, product suppliers and practitioners operating in the sector today, how are they getting their message across?

Be2Heritage was an interactive event that brought together people from across the heritage sector to discuss communication-related challenges, such as..

•What issues are people in the sector currently facing?

•How can businesses in this sector take advantage of social media?

•Does new technology pose particular challenges for property owners and operators, or does it open up new opportunities?

•What online resources are appropriate to the heritage sector, and how to get started with them?

The free event was designed to be as interactive as possible, encouraging attendees to actively participate by sharing their comments and questions both online and with the speakers. Those unable to attend were able to follow the discussions on twitter using the hashtag #Be2HER and have the opportunity to have their questions answered by the speakers.

The event was a great success and the tweetreach report (below) shows that the heritage has a wide appeal and considerable audience !!
