Gogh-ing to Amsterdam: GALA 2017
In late March, three representatives from Albion Languages will attend the 2017 GALA Global conference. We will spend two days beside the cobblestone canal sides of Amsterdam, meeting and greeting with colleagues in the industry.
The annual conference aims to provide an opportunity for networking and exchanging knowledge with members and non-members of the Globalization and Localization Association. Presentations will partly focus on leadership and business strategy, as 40% of attendees are typically executives. Other topics will include technical innovation in the industry, provider-supplier relationships, and advice for buyers and freelancers. Language service providers, software developers, translation buyers, and linguistic researchers are all sure to find opportunities to learn, share and network at the conference. Presentations from technical innovators and prominent companies such as XTRF, Memsource, Argos Multilingual and Xplanation will discuss advances in the industry and address challenges in marketing and sales in an ever-changing translation market.
Around 450 international attendees are expected to attend, arriving from over 40 different countries. Networking will certainly be a highlight of the event, and we look forward to meeting with expert translation agencies and innovators from across the globe. If you would like to meet with our representatives over the course of GALA 2017, don’t hesitate to send a message to Alistair Binks, Managing Director at Albion Languages. See you soon!
