About The Romoe Conservators Network
Inception and history
Since its inception in April 2001, the Romoe Conservators Network is an international network for and by restorers that offers a structured directory as well as an extensive category and radius search for specialists.
The network provides plenty of contacts to organizations, educational institutions, institutes, and facilitation of the exchange of special information. You can also get insights into some of the projects and work done by restorers, which involves both academic and craft restoration. The directory offers a comprehensive experience through overviews of various regions, categories, subject areas, and a search area optimized for clients and interested parties in finding restorers. While the network was originally available in German, they have sought to expand their services.
Membership and followers
Current data shows that Romoe Conservators Network has a huge number of registered users who continue to grow with each day. The Network also has a considerable social media following and reach with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The service currently offers three packages that include organizations, art conservators, and manufactures and suppliers. Registration by organizations and art conservators is completely free. Manufacturers and suppliers get to pay a cheap monthly subscription fee of Eur 10.
The art restorations are all referenced in the Conservators Network by regions and categories. This helps in increasing trustworthiness and credibility, and it is even better when they are registered under the network. Data in the directory is organized according to country, for example, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany, among others. By clicking on the respective country, one is directed to a further overview page with a map showing places that registered users have worked before. All marked locations on the map include information such as contact data, diploma thesis, documentation, and references of registered users.
