This year’s edition of the Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism will take place in Paestum from 14 to 17 November 2019.

The Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism has once again confirmed its original and one of a kind event. The innovative international exhibition featuring interactive and virtual multimedia technologies, which over the years has become an important venue for in-depth analysis and dissemination of significant and innovative issues entirely dedicated to cultural tourism is the ideal opportunity for business meetings, for tourist and cultural professionals, for travelers or for those simply interested in archaeological tourism.

Over the years, the Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism has become a successful initiative thanks to the participation of over 10,000 visitors, 150 exhibitors including 20 foreign countries, 50 conferences and meetings, 300 speakers, 250 operators and 100 journalists.

Several are the areas and awards part of the Exchange. To name a few: ArchaeoExperience, laboratories and historical reenactments of Experimental Archaeology to reproduce the techniques used in the past to create daily use artifacts; ArchaeoMeetings, press conferences and presentations of cultural and territorial development projects; ArchaeoStartUp, where new cultural enterprises and innovative projects in archaeological activities are introduced; International Archaeological Discovery Award “Khaled al-Asaad” for the most valuable discovery of the year, named after the archaeologist of Palmyra who paid with his life for the protection of cultural heritage; the “Paestum Archaeology” Award assigned to those who have contributed to the valorization of archaeological heritage; as well as Guided Tours for journalists and visitors.
