We get it. Previous attendees have told us over and over how important networking is at LocWorld. We are happy to provide the time and space to allow fruitful conversations to occur! Of course, this all gets a little difficult to arrange when the conference is virtual and attendees are sitting at their desks. But LocWorldWide44 is providing many ways to chat with fellow attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors! Here is a list of what to expect:
- Opening Reception and Newbie Welcome: The Opening Reception and Newbie Welcome is open to all LocWorldWide44 attendees. The second “floor” of the networking site will be hosted by Aki Ito and is specifically designated for all conference newcomers. Everyone is invited and encouraged to visit this area to meet our new attendees, answer their questions, and get to know them. The remainder of the networking site is for everyone (new and old) to meander through the tables and meet colleagues and friends.
- Keynote sponsored by Language I/O followed with networking
- Lunches (both days): Conference networking, sponsored by RWS
- Lobby Bar Social: Do you remember at in-person conferences how you could walk past the lobby bar and find fellow attendees to chat with? Well, we can’t replicate the bar or the background music, but we still have you and your fellow attendees! Drop by, bring your own libation, and let’s chat!
- Meet the Principals: LocWorld founders Ulrich Henes and Donna Parrish will be on hand to try to answer any questions and listen to any and all suggestions.
- Q&A with a LocWorld Veteran: Are you new to LocWorld? Join Aki Ito to have your LocWorld questions answered. Aki is a LocWorld veteran with many tips and information to share. Welcome to LocWorldWide44! Or you can visit Solutions Square to network with exhibitors or connect with fellow attendees.
- Coffee with Anne-Marie: Bring your coffee (tea or champagne) and join in on a conversation with Anne-Marie Colliander Lind and friends.
- Solutions Square: Talk to our exhibitors and learn what’s new and exciting in our industry! Solutions Square is open throughout the conference.
