Each year in late September or early October, the Cultural Routes Annual Advisory Forum is organised in close collaboration with one of the member States of the Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes (EPA).

The Annual Advisory Forum enables the reunion of member States representatives, Cultural Routes operators, candidate networks to the certification "Cultural Route of the Council of Europe", international organisations, local and regional authorities, civil society organisations, chambers of commerce, foundations and other donor organisations and heritage and tourism organisations and platforms.

The Annual Advisory Forum discusses trends and challenges in relation to Cultural Routes and provide a platform for the exchange of experience, review of progress with the implementation of Cultural Routes, debates on new professional practices, the launch of new initiatives and the development of partnerships.

In 2020, the Annual Advisory Forum on Cultural Routes will take place in Chania, Greece.
