We are excited to inform you that the LRE Forum 2023 will be held in Florence, Tuscany! From 28 February to 3 March 2023, the Foundation’s annual event will bring together international members, partners, and tourism stakeholders to network, share best practices and develop new ideas within the Second World War history and remembrance fields.
The 4-days program, jointly organised by the LRE Foundation and LRE Italy, is designed to offer a variety of activities, including engaging panel discussions on current topics in the WWII history and remembrance sectors, as well as several networking opportunities with WWII-related organisations, tourism and cultural heritage institutions, and international travel trade operators.
On 1 March, the LRE Member Seminar (morning) will provide an occasion to meet with other members, exchange ideas, and hear the Foundation’s latest updates. Following this, the LRE Conference (afternoon) features a variety of panel discussions about WWII history, memory transmission and the ever-changing, and at times challenging, landscapes in which we strive to remember and transmit our shared memories of the Second World War today. In the evening, the LRE Gala dining event offers valuable networking opportunities for Foundation members, key partners, and sponsors.
The LREXPO, to be held on 2 March, is an annual remembrance tourism expo that provides LRE Foundation’s members and partners an excellent opportunity to network with travel trade stakeholders from Europe and North America. To wrap up the LRE Forum 2023, organised site visits will be offered to explore some of the many important historical WWII sites and landmarks in the region, especially relating to the Italian Resistance and the Gothic Line.
