Interpret Europe’s broad membership is the guarantee of lively exchange between more than 1000 practitioners and academics, suppliers and customers from 55 countries.

To facilitate this exchange, we offer several news channels such as newsmails, newsletters, the news section on this website, our conference website newsfeed and our social media accounts. We organise conferences, training courses, webinars and surveys, and we join political meetings, trade fairs and other international events to advocate for the work of our members.

Our members are

  • Individuals interested in heritage interpretation and/or working as guides or trainers, designers, copywriters or planners, or in the management of facilities
  • Institutions or organisations encouraging people to experience and learn about natural or cultural heritage
  • Businesses offering interpretive or support services and supplies

Members of Interpret Europe are based on all continents. We welcome anybody wanting to become a member and be connected with the development of heritage interpretation in Europe.

Members do not need to renew their membership. It is effective for an unlimited time, and can be cancelled by the member to the end of the year at any time.

A member who wishes to re-join IE after her or his membership has been cancelled by IE will be charged a re-application fee. This fee will be at the same rate as the entry membership fee that applies in the applicant’s country.

Membership fees are adjusted to the average income in different countries. To keep them low, we strongly encourage the use of SEPA direct debit mandates. If this is not possible, we offer Paypal direct invoicing or invoices paid by regular bank transfer.

Donors wishing to offer sponsored memberships to a person, an organisation or a company can do so for one year or longer.

Much learning does not teach understanding.
