Innocastle stakeholders were present at the Heritage Houses for Europe conference that took place on the 24th of September at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels. The conference addressed family-owned heritage houses, which although represent a dynamic sector that creates jobs and generates sustainable growth, are sometimes seen as ‘the hidden face of cultural heritage’.
