DENKMAL 2016 – THE INDUSTRY’S LEADING EUROPEAN TRADE FAIR
The diversity of heritage protection and restoration and the challenges they face today require an enormous, well-founded knowledge base, extensive practical experience, traditional craft and restoration technique skills and the courage to innovate.
Since 1994 Leipzig has stood for this principle with the denkmal trade fair, which has become the most important get-together for the interdisciplinary transfer of knowledge within our industry when it is held there every two years. The high quality and broad spectrum denkmal covers in every segment, its pronounced specialised nature, the diversity of the issues it addresses, its wide range of exhibitor presentations and practical demonstrations, “Living Workshops”, activity spaces and its elaborate programme of events and features are the trademark of our industry’s leading European trade fair.
Right from the start denkmal has been characterised by top technical expertise and an international character, along with extraordinarily high educational and experience value. Everyone involved has the opportunity for outstanding synergies, thanks in particular to the transfer of specialised knowledge and networking on offer, as well as the intersections between culture and the business world along with the innovations in heritage conservation and restoration.
Leipziger Messe collaborates with experts to organise the top quality congresses, national and international specialist events, seminars, workshops, specialised company presentations, podium discussions and expert discussion rounds, numerous award ceremonies and special shows. And the specialised company lectures and presentations held at the individual exhibition stands also enrich and add to the appeal of Europe’s leading trade fair for our industry.
We look forward to the chance to welcome you back to Leipzig in 2016!

(11/03/2016) The European monument preservation society Europa Nostra represents the interests of more than 400 NGOs and natural persons from the sphere of monument preservation. With its more than 50 years of experience, the society has built an extensive network, which functions as an important link in the international effort to preserve cultural heritage. Europa Nostra will hold its council meeting at denkmal 2016. One segment of that meeting will be open to the public and deal with the preparations for the European Cultural Heritage Year 2018. In our interview, the secretary general of Europa Nostra, Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović, explains how the society functions and what denkmal as a platform means for the preservation of historic monuments.
(11/03/2016) Russia will once again contribute to the historic preservation sector’s leading European trade fair, denkmal, with three shared stands this year – for the Russian Federation, St. Petersburg, and Moscow. In particular, Moscow’s municipal government delights visitors in Leipzig every two years with an elaborately designed stand that follows a specific theme. This year, the stand pays homage to the protected WDNCh trade fair area, both for historic and topical reasons.
