marketing instruments.

On several stands very interesting talks

were held about the possibility to pro-

mote the cultural heritage “Fortresses”

and to cooperate in the future in the de-

velopment of combined tourist products

like Forte Cultura.

A great interest of tour operators for the

new tourist product Forte Cultura was

discovered. On the other hand, there is

a need for better solutions on the e-mar-

keting front.

Development of management

models and utilisation concepts

Berlin, March 2013

A transnational workshop held at Hum-

boldt University in Berlin on the 12th of

March 2013 showed the huge variety of

different management models of fortress-

es carried out by the project partners.

The different management approaches

are needed due to the life cycle phase of

a monument – for instance: reconstruc-

tion, development or maintenance. The

discussion led to a general idea that man-

agement can be either used as a method

and tool for finding the proper operation

model or as a process to integrate the

monument to an existing structure.

Solving financing problem is, of all as-

pects, the most urgent task. Therefore

the strategy of monument capitalising is

a process to activate resources for better

monument economy. In reference to life

Task Force e-Marketing


On the 13th February 2013 the workshop

"Tool development for e-marketing of for-

tress monuments" took place at Humboldt

University in Berlin.

The purpose was to establish solutions,

tools, concepts and strategies for all for-

tified monuments, to use modern com-

munication opportunities to present their

offers to a broader public and to attract

more people.

During that workshop the Fortress König-

stein (Germany) and the Fortress Kufstein

(Austria) presented their experiences and

the efforts they undertook to use modern

communication channels. Other experts

spoke about internet marketing and so-

cial media. The need for separate special

working groups for the specific field of in-

ternet marketing was established during

discussions. The "Task Force e-marketing

fortified heritage" was founded under the

leadership of Forte Cultura project part-

ner ECCOFORT reg.ass.

It will be mandated to solve different

tasks of the working programme in the

field of e-marketing.

Workshop Transnational Infor-

mation System Fortress Heritage


Berlin, April 2013

During the workshop on the 30th of April

in Humboldt University in Berlin the de-

velopment and implementation of a new

universal information database for Cen-

tral Europe's fortification heritage was

discussed. The project partners wish that

the content and the structure of the data-

base portrays all aspects and facts of the

fortified cultural heritage.

The German fortress association “INTER-

FEST e.V.” proposed its data storage con-

cept. The database TIS Fortress Heritage

should centralise diverse information and

will be a common platform to collect and

disseminate fortress information.

The participants agreed to harmonise the

TIS Fortified Heritage with the planned

database "Traditional knowledge and ex-

pertises for fortified monument conserva-

tion" (output in work package 6) under

responsibility of the Slovenian Institute

for Monument Protection.

At the Forte Cultura network, we are

we foresee developing a corresponding
