The Association for Preservation Technology International (APT) is hosting its annual conference this fall in Québec City.

This year’s theme, Métissage, will reflect the history of the host city as well as the built environment and what is presented at the conference. APT promotes technologies used for conserving historical buildings and their surroundings. The event’s attendees will include architects, engineers, curators, and developers.

Continuing education credits are being offered in three separate tracks:
● Territory: The Large Scale;
● Building: The Middle Scale; and
● Tectonic: The Micro Scale.

Attendees will also be able to take part in two-day workshops taught by industry experts, 20 paper sessions, field sessions, and networking events.

The conference takes place at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac from October 26 to 29. Click here[2] for more information.
