Thursday 19th September 2019, Alexandra Palace, London
Games of Thrones, Horrible Histories, Assassins Creed, – history is being constantly reinvented and successfully reinterpreted for new generations on TV, in books and in games. So how should those that rely on interest in England’s history and heritage evolve to ensure they adopt the most effective and appreciated techniques and technologies whilst remaining authentic and accessible?
This landmark one-day conference will showcase the range of interpretive techniques in use – and in development – from immersive and traditional to leading edge, and will assess their value in terms of effectiveness, commercial return and audience engagement through demonstrations, case studies, presentations and discussions.
Delegates will leave the conference with new information and a helpful framework to make future investment and strategy decisions on how they can interpret their product and attract new audiences.
Who should attend?
The conference is for:
