In September 2019, the HOMEE researchers presented the first-year outcomes the 5th Heritage Forum of Central Europe. Heritage Forum of Central Europe. One of the afternoon sessions of the Forum, entitled "Discussing the Opportunities and Threats of Organizing Mega-Events in Historic Cities" is entirely devoted to the issues of mega-events and their consequences for cities rich in cultural heritage resources. Then, together with the project partners and invited experts we will talk about the cities presented, aiming to create recommendations for future host cities.
