Heritage preservation support in 5 actions

When we talk about the protection of our heritage, we immediately think of the European Heritage Days. However, there are other actions, unknown to the general public.

Focus on 5 events, in which the Group Mercure has actively participated.

The Cultural Heritage Fair

The Cultural Heritage Fair took place at the Carrousel du Louvre from the 3rd to the 6th of November.

More than 350 artisans were present, to show their expertise and to inform about the renewal of the heritage. For its 22nd edition, remarkable sites of French and foreign heritage were honored.

Besides craftsmen, regional chambers of crafts and the association of conservation architects, the main actors of the heritage protection explain their actions. As does the Group Mercure, who takes advantage of this event every year to talk with craftsmen and to complement its expertise in the Historical Monuments and Heritage Protection fields.
