Registration Opens for "GALA 2010: The Language of Business. The Business of Language."

The Global Community: Capturing Customers Worldwide

Wednesday, 20 January, 2010

Seattle, Washington, USA (20 January 2010) –The Globalization and Localization Association has announced the opening of registration for “GALA 2010: The Language of Business. The Business of Language.” to be held 10 – 12 May 2010 at the Intercontinental Praha in Prague. Early registration discounts are available through 01 March. 


Registration and initial details on the conference are available at www.gala-global.org/conference.


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 beautiful 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 programming committee is comprised of GALA board members working closely with client-side leaders all of whom are steeped in the issues of the day. 


“The conference builds on the successes of GALA 2009 and again offers relevant content, many new opportunities for networking, and an atmosphere of collaboration,” said Hans Fenstermacher, GALA Board Chair.   “We continue to work hard to move away from the standard conference fare and create innovative, exciting events from which we all benefit.”


Indeed, feedback from GALA’s initial Language of Business conference in 2009 was overwhelmingly positive. Xavier Marchand, a director of production at one of our member companies, commented that, “I had more existing clients and more contacts at GALA 2009 than at any of the shows I have been to before.” 


Silvia Avary-Silveiro of VeriSign remarked, “The 2009 GALA conference in Cancun was the best conference I went to last year. It was three days of sharing ideas and work experience with bright people in the localization industry and excellent presentations. All that and the added bonus of being in a wonderful location!” GALA 2010 will continue to push the envelope and introduce some new networking concepts.
