ICOMOS holds its General Assembly every year and triennial General Assembly every three years. Till date, ICOMOS has held 18 sessions of its triennial General Assembly, twelve in Europe, two in Asia, two in North America and one in Africa. The General Assembly and the Scientific Symposium provides great opportunity for heritage professionals and enthusiasts to come together on a common platform to deliberate on various aspects of heritage conservation and management. Young professionals and enthusiasts also get a chance to interact with experts and comprehend the emerging issues and case studies on conservation and management of cultural resources.
