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.

LocWorld is a great opportunity to benchmark localization trends and best practices!

Large industry conferences are mostly just about business. LocWorld is not. It is a highly professional event where you can get information on latest developments, meet industry thought leaders, network with friends, peers and new people from all over the world in an informal environment.

Kilgray has marked upcoming LocWorld conferences into its calendar for the next 20 years already.

We have been coming to and sponsoring LocWorld events for years now, LocWorld being the premier industry event really allows us to not only see our customers and colleagues, but make new friends and contacts. The amount of industry knowledge under one roof is invaluable and helps us in planning for our future.
