A few weeks after the Rendezvous of the Loire Valley World Heritage 2018 is a good time to look back at this 12th edition, in pictures and figures, with discussions and discoveries taking centre-stage as always for the 440 participants who travelled to Tours to attend. This year's Rendezvous was also the opportunity to mark the twin changes in position at Mission Val de Loire, which now has a new President and Director!
A full turnout!
This biennial event provides a unique setting for getting together and discussing recent news and projects in progress or the pipeline across the Loire Valley World Heritage.
And 28 November in Tours was no exception: all day long, experiences, knowledge and ideas were readily shared. Participants were able to find out about what has been or is being done to promote the Loire heritage. Through project stands, the book space and the 50|50 and 20|20 sessions, everyone had a chance to hear about the wealth and vitality of the Loire valley – a cultural living landscape – and to see it for themselves. A hugely eventful day ... with the foghorn sounding in the background!
This year the stakeholders' forum ran throughout the day, which maximised discussion time between visitors, exhibitors and speakers. A good crowd of participants flocked to the project stands in the morning ... which then stood rather empty in the afternoon as everyone headed to the 20|20 sessions taking place alongside, before a jam-packed audience!
The buffet was also an enjoyable moment (...) and went down a treat among all the event-goers! Any “leftovers” were not wasted but given to charity.

Changes in the President and Director...
As stipulated in the articles of association, François Bonneau, President of the Centre-Val de Loire Region, handed the position of Mission Val de Loire President over to Christelle Morançais, President of Pays de La Loire Region, for the next three years.
Pays de la Loire Region report:
"This is a unique opportunity to strengthen inter-regional cooperation between the Pays de la Loire and Centre-Val de Loire Regions. One of the chief challenges is to know what we are going to pass on to our children in the years ahead."
Christelle Morançais, President of the Pays de La Loire Region"
Tribute was paid to Isabelle Longuet, who had served as Director of Mission Val de Loire since 2010 before retiring this year. Bruno Marmiroli has been the new Director of Mission Val de Loire since September 2018.
... are bringing about new guidelines.
These twin changes to Mission Val de Loire's management team come hand in hand with new guidelines for action for the years ahead. These guidelines follow along the same lines as those set out in the Management Plan, for which Mission Val de Loire is the leading authority.
- Finding out and disseminating the values of the site's listing, an acknowledged action to be continued
- Sharing common values – Helping residents to make the territory their own, a dialogue to be developed
- Making considerate, careful use of the River Loire – protecting and showcasing the listed territory
- 20th anniversary of the listing: towards a new governance? Turning 20 in the Loire Valley, what paths travelled and what future?
These guidelines follow along the same lines as those set out in the Management Plan, for which Mission Val de Loire is the leading authority.
And to conclude, the summary of the answers to the satisfaction survey!
