London Heritage Together event success!
Posted by Russ Dalton on 1st October 2010.
Despite the rain and delays on the trains the event was very well attended with a wide variety of people representing different parts of the heritage sector. A good number of ProjectBook members from London and the surrounding counties were present and it was great to put a face to so many familiar names. We were pleased to see so many make the effort to join us, with some guests coming from as far away as Durham!
We were also joined by representatives of heritage organisations a large contingent of new faces and twitterers from around the sector and of course the Edelman property team. Overall interest for the event was good with between 40-50 people arriving on the day.
The evening started with refeshments and then got underway with a brief introduction by ProjectBook founder James Mott followed by an engaging address from Edelman’s property director, Elizabeth Tagge. Her presentation entitled “The changing media landscape and its effect on the heritage sector” addressed the new trends and concepts of PR for the sector.
The event then opened for more networking which concluded almost two hours past the official end time at 10.30pm, which was a testament to the events success.
This is the first of ProjectBook’s Heritage Together events which will be running in different forms around the country. More networking events and courses will follow in the coming months to engage and interact ProjectBook members and heritage people and bring together everyone working in the sector.

We look forward to our next event and hope to see an even larger attendance!
“The event was a great success and it was my pleasure to meet so many exemplary members of our ProjectBook community and other businesses from around the sector. I hope that the success of this event will be a model for all of our events to come.” James Mott – ProjectBook Founder.
Our thanks to Edelman PR, Elizabeth Tagge and Danielle Rapaport for hosting the event and the excellent work they put in.
