"GALA 2010: The Language of Business. The Business of Language" to be Held in May in Prague
The Global Community: Capturing Customers Worldwide
Seattle, Washington, USA (15 December 2009) – Building off the momentum of its first-ever conference in September, the Globalization and Localization Association has announced “GALA 2010: The language of business. The business of language.” will be held 10 – 12 May 2010 at the Intercontinental Praha in Prague.
GALA 2010 will bring together suppliers, technology providers and consumers of translation and localization services to collectively share, discuss and debate the latest technologies and advancements in localization, language and global content delivery. Like the GALA 2009 event, the setting will offer a professionally pleasant atmosphere for conducting business.
The GALA 2010 theme, The Global Community: Capturing Customers Worldwide, reflects the work shared by our members and their customers in communicating global content locally. The conference will include practical information on building a global content strategy to serve local customers worldwide as well as relevant ideas for helping language service providers build their businesses. The program in development will feature presentations, discussion and debates on localization, language and global content delivery.
“Our substantial positive feedback from our first conference in September, focused on the rich content and the professionalism of the event,” said Jim Hollan, executive director of GALA. “In 2010 we will create an equally intriguing atmosphere and will add some new elements, such as speed learning and even higher-value networking.”
“The GALA conferences are not the same old, same old. At GALA 2010 we will have attendees and speakers who typically are not seen at industry events. We are building something new, and we invite everyone in our sector to join us,” said Kim Harris, past and upcoming board member as well as chair of the GALA 2010 program committee.
GALA 2010 has an open call for papers for the conference, which can be downloaded from the conference website. Session proposals are due 10 January 2010.
