The Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism has long established itself as an unique international event: home of the only exhibition hall in the world dedicated to archaeological heritage and to ArchaeoVirtual, the first international event dedicated to multimedia, interactive and virtual technologies; a forum for research and debate on cultural heritage and tourism issues; a meeting place for professional business, tourism and cultural operators and travellers; the Workshop between foreign buyers, national buyers and cultural and archaeological tourism stakeholders will provide business opportunities.

Since 2015, the International Archaeological Discovery Award “Khaled al-Asaad” is assigned to the most valuable discovery of the year; it was named after the archaeologist of Palmyra who gave his life for protecting cultural heritage. Since 2021 we assign also the “Sebastiano Tusa” Award to the archaeological discovery of the year, as a lifelong achievement award, to the exhibition in an international scientific context, to the most innovative, to the educational journalism contribution.
