Jewish Heritage Tourism in the Digital Age
October 23-25, 2017 // Venice, Italy
Beit Venezia, Jewish Heritage Europe and the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe are organizing a conference on Jewish Heritage Tourism in the Digital Age, from Monday 23 October to Wednesday 25 October 2017 in Venice, Italy.
The challenges and opportunities posed by Jewish heritage tourism and travel in Europe are the focus of this three-day conference and raise many important issues both in places where there is an active local Jewish population and in places where there are sites of Jewish heritage but no organized Jewish community.
The conference will focus on issues that reflect the growing diversity and energy of Jewish and Jewish-themed tourism in Europe, both for Jews and for others. But it will also address both the specifics of Jewish heritage tourism and how it fits within heritage tourism/travel in general. Special emphasis will be given to the ways in which technology influences and possibly changes Jewish heritage tourism.
This conference follows on from a number of major international conferences on Jewish built heritage issues that have taken place since 1990. Please note that registration is required.
