Together with Anette Granlund, Chair of the Conference, we will meet with the Local Organizing Committee and will visit many sites for exhibitions, the Dealers Fair, Lecture Sessions, and other events included in the Conference Program of ICOC-12 in June 2011. Alberto Boralevi, Chair of the ICOC Academic Committee, has also organized a meeting during this time.
Other items on the agendas of these meetings will include reviewing arrangements for an exciting pre-Conference tour to Copenhagen and an extraordinary 4-day post-Conference tour to St. Petersburg, Russia. With the capable and dedicated assistance of Dr. Elena Tsareva, plans are currently being made for special visits to rare collections in the Hermitage, Russian Ethnographic and Kunstkamera Museums. A package of unique, private exhibitions and events is certain to appeal to a large number of ICOC-12 registrants.
