2022 International Preservation Trades Workshop

2022 International Preservation Trades Workshop


2022 International Preservation Trades Workshop


Preservation Trades Network (PTN) is delighted to announce that the 24th annual International Preservation Trades Workshop will commence on the weekend of May 19-21, 2022. 

The annual conference brings together trade organizations and nonprofits from across the country, providing an opportunity for individuals of every age and background to network and experience traditional building trades in a hands-on setting. It is fitting then, that IPTW 2022 should return to the Building Restoration & Preservation facility at Belmont College, one of the top programs in the United States for hands-on building preservation training. 

Since the very first “gathering of trades” in 1997, the Preservation Trades Network has strived to fill a critical void within the mainstream preservation movement- the perception that trades people and contractors were not adequately recognized or acknowledged by the preservation industry. As usual, workshops, speakers, and tours of historic sites throughout the Ohio Valley will supplement hands-on demonstrations. The annual PTN awards dinner and auction will be held at the newly restored Scottish Rite Temple in downtown Wheeling, West Virginia.

PTN is firmly committed to sustaining the success of traditional trades education programs, recognizing the contributions of the masters of the trades, and creating opportunities for future generations of trades people.

We are proceeding with extreme caution in planning this event during the ever-changing Covid-19 pandemic, and have developed our Covid-19 Policy and Protocols. It is available publically on our website, and we regularly update these as the situation changes and new information is considered. To view PTN’s Covid-19 protocol please see our website. We hope that you will join us May 19-21st for IPTW 2022 and help us keep the traditional building trades alive.
