2013 Conference February 6-8, 2013

Colorado Convention Center, Downtown Denver

The Language of Preservation:

Building a Relevant Message for the 21st Century

Preservation belongs here!

This project is paid for in part by a State Historical Fund grant from History Colorado.

Saving Places 2013

The theme for the 2013 Saving Places Conference

is “The Language of Preservation: Building a Relevant Message for the 21st Century.” There is a significant body of evidence that suggests that historic preservation spurs downtown revitalization, creates jobs, promotes tourism, increases property values, has a smaller carbon footprint than new construction, connects people with places, strengthens communities and much more. Preservationists have done a fantastic job researching and documenting these benefits, yet historic preservation is often cast in an unfavorable light in the eyes of outsiders; ridiculed as a threat to private property rights, an impediment to progress, and an inefficient strain on resources. The 2013 Saving Places conference will aim to deconstruct the misunderstandings surrounding historic preservation and shape messages that clearly articulate positive benefits of the movement.
