Inspiring site visits and expert speakers

The programme includes an exciting range of speakers including John Veverka, one of the world’s best known interpretive professionals, as well as knowledgeable consultants Anne Fletcher and Kate Measures and local experts Vicky Harrison (York Minster) and Sarah Maltby (JorviK).
We’ll be finding out how to make small budgets go a long way by visiting historic York Minster, and heading into the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside to Ryedale Folk Museum and stunning Castle Howard.  We’ll also be taking a virtual tour of historic York with John Oxley, the city’s leading heritage expert, and you can sign up for our pre-conference workshop on developing audio based interpretation projects on a budget with Dan Boys, interpretive audio and app expert.

Conferencing in comfort

We will be based just north of York at Burn Hall, Huby, which offers a high standard of accommodation in a relaxed countryside setting on the edge of the North York Moors National Park.

Step into the spotlight

Want to share your survival tips and tricks?  As usual, the programme includes opportunities for you, our delegates, to contribute.  If you’d like to be involved, send us your proposal for a ten minute paper to conference@ahi.org.uk or bring along a survival story for our ‘Great Examples’ noticeboard!

Put on a show!

If you offer services or products to the interpretation sector, the conference is a great place to showcase your work and support AHI at the same time. You can promote your project or business at very reasonable rates throughout the conference. For example, for £160 you can put up a display next to the main conference room or for £60 put brochures into every delegate’s conference pack.
