The North West Branch of the Institute of Historic Building Conservation has launched another of its ever-popular Day Conferences, with its 2013 event set to explore the critical new area of digital technology, and which will take place on Wednesday 16 October in Manchester.

Sean O'Reilly, IHBC Director, said: "With an exciting and busy programme planned, the day will contribute critical new perspectives and understanding to the CPD of any IHBC member. Moreover, with the programme extending from survey and interpretation to demos and impact assessments, this promises to provide a uniquely concise survey of what is fast becoming one of the most interesting items in the 21st century armoury of the conservation specialist, or indeed anyone with an interest in cutting edge practice in the built or historic environment."

Entitled 'Digital Heritage – new technology for the historic environment' , the IHBC's NW Branch writes of the event:

"Digital technologies are here to stay for historic buildings, but are often misunderstood and underused. There is great potential to use innovative digital application for the surveying, recording, refurbishment and interpretation of heritage assets. This conference will highlight examples of best practice to allow you to conserve and present your historic environment more effectively. Case studies will be presented from the public and private sectors and the conference will be of interest to conservation and heritage specialists, architects, planners and surveyors."
