The ICOM General Conference, held every three years, provides an important opportunity for ICOM members from 139 countries to share experiences, future prospects, and advance expertise and leadership in the field of cultural heritage and museums. In 2019, this event will be hosted in a city famous for its cultural traditions: Kyoto, Japan.

As one of Japan’s iconic cultural hubs, combining traditional practices with an innovative spirit, Kyoto is an ideal venue to address the theme of this conference. By participating in ICOM Kyoto 2019, we hope you can get a flavor for our museums and the communities that they represent in Kyoto, Japan.
