#1 Event Rule: No Selling

This event is adopting an increasingly popular rule for localization mixers and events: no selling. We want everyone to feel comfortable here. This does not prevent you from exchanging business cards or telling people about your company when you are asked, but we want to keep this far from the killing grounds where aggressive salespeople scare away everyone else. Seriously.

Thank you to our hosts!

Please take a moment to thank our hosts who are allowing us to hold this event on the 26th floor of the Church Office Building - thank you to the Publishing Services Division Translation Team at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints!

Long Term Association

As Utah's economy grows - and the Silicon Slopes become a larger tech hub - we see a need to form a localization community that fosters collaboration, professional growth, and sharing of new ideas. Silicon Slopes Localization aims to hold multiple events like this each year - often in collaboration with Women in Localization Utah Chapter and the UTIA - to help support and strengthen Utah's localization professionals.
