The 2013 Preservation Conference takes its inspiration from recent trends in preservation and the relationship between development and preservation in New York City. The keynote, panels and discussions will address several case studies that showcase how preservation has brought positive change to New York City and made it the city we enjoy today.
The Conference will consist of speakers highlighting both broad case studies as well as smaller, neighborhood-based battles. In the end, all attendees should come away better informed about how preservation works in New York City.  A distinguished group of preservationists, educators and community advocates from across New York City’s five boroughs and beyond will address these issues. The Conference consists of two morning presentations and panel discussions with a keynote address the previous evening.
During the Conference, attendees will also hear directly from local advocates who are working directly on neighborhood-based preservation campaigns. Selected groups will present relevant projects and programs as part of HDC’s Annual Preservation Fair in the gallery adjoining the Conference auditorium throughout the morning.
