The congress in Leipzig is the first public event to be held on the instigation of the European Heritage Beads Forum and sees itself as a platform for an exchange of. information about "examples of best practice" and experience in dealing with cultural heritage. The congress is being organized jointly by the National Monument Preservation Association and the German National Committee for monument Protection. Participation is free of charge.
