Gary Lefman

This was a particularly good conference. There was an all-round positive vibe and it was possible to detect a clear shift toward localization as a driver of global growth, rather than the usual afterthought. The venue, as always, was perfect for a conference of this size.

I was certainly expecting to learn a lot about localization at LocWorld, and to connect with potential partners, and the conference definitely delivered on this front. What I wasn't expecting was such an immediate positive impact on our bottom line! New business inquiries started the Monday after the conference and by Wednesday we had landed our largest contract to date.

Sara Maria Hasbun Managing Director, Meridian Linguistics

LocWorld is definitely the leading conference to discuss the latest innovations in this sector. Attendance is obligatory for those striving to create best of breed language management process's in globally competing organizations.

Shamus Dermody Sales Director, XTM International

We haven’t missed a single LocWorld event, as attendees or exhibitors, since the first conference in Seattle in 2003. These events have become the mainstay of our localization industry conference presence. They are always an excellent opportunity to learn, network and meet hundreds of contacts – old or new.
