Any general questions about the Camden Centre, the layout of the conference or who will be exhibiting and how?

Well, here's were to ask them.

I'll do my best to respond swiftly to questions and discussions with prompt and full information, a hectic work schedule permitting.

Best regards

Michael

Internet access Oct 24, 2008

Hi Michael,

I would like to ask if Wi-Fi Internet access will be available at the conference venue, how the delegates will be able to use it and the costs related to this service.

If I missed this information in the conference page, please excuse me.

Thank you,

Fabio

WAN Oct 24, 2008

Hi Fabio,

a very good question, which allows me to announce the solution in place, which will also be circulated by e-mail to all delegates early next week..

Unfortunately, the venue does not have a Wi-Fi system, but will be providing a table with WAN internet access in the exhibition area so that delegates can check their e-mail etc as required during the conference.

We all know how urgent client problems can crop up right in the middle of the least convenient weekends!

Cheers

Michael

Good alternative Oct 24, 2008

Hi Michael,

thanks for the quick reply.

This sounds like a good alternative to the Wi-Fi, and confirms once again how this conference is being accurately organized!

I'll be waiting for the next newsletters then.

Ciao,

Fabio

Where is this conference? Oct 31, 2008

Hi there,

I looked and I can't find any address for that conference.
It would be nice to have an exact address else, how can we plan it?

Thank you for providing me with the details,

All the best,

Hacène

Two links (and and third direct to Camden Centre) here Nov 1, 2008

Hi Hacene,

you can find further information on the venue here: http://www.proz.com/conference/55?page=venue and here: http://www.translationconference.org.uk/index_files/Page470.html

The latter site contains a map showing you the precise location (as well as the address) plus a link to the Camden Centre's own website.

Cheers

Michael

Link to Camden Centre takes me somewhere totally useless Nov 9, 2008

Hi Michael
I tried to obtain detailed information about the Camden Centre. Do they not have a website? It seems uncommonly hard to find access details. The link to Camden Centre from http://www.translationconference.org.uk/index_files/Page470.html, goes to a commercial site that does not seem to have any bearings on the conference venue:
https://www.compilahosting.co.uk/hostadminebs/?page=domains&domain_id=10022307&account_id=4434&action=send_domain_details&session_id=FTv2t2JV0ZlzTxr8R6MvitNqhp

I would appreciate being able to download pdfs of the conference details -- programme, Friday dinner, Saturday dinner, venue, speakers, participants, etc.

Very many thanks. Look forward to meeting you in person, and to seeing many colleagues.

Real link Nov 10, 2008

Many apologies, I'm not quite sure which of the various updates corrupted that link. I'm afraid I quite simply never notices.

Suffice to say, this is what it was originally and should have continued to be: http://www.camden.gov.uk/ccm/navigation/business/venues-for-events/camden-centre/

I'm correcting the site as I write this.

I'll be sending a sort of information pack e-mail to all delegates later this week - as soon as we reach our cut-off number. Not least of all to also remind people that they cannot pay at the very last minute - we'll need around a week to prepare the badges, pay caterers and so on.

Cheers

Mike

Link corrected and working Nov 10, 2008

OK the site link is now correct and working. May have been a server problem with the hosting company (Compila) that corrupted the link, apparently.

Thanks for letting me know.

Conference Guide Nov 16, 2008

Just in case anyone missed the e-mails, the Conference Guide has been available since Friday at: http://www.translationconference.org.uk/Guide%20to%20the%20Translator%20as%20Strategic%20Partner.pdf

Please note that it's a 6MB file, which should print out nice clearly to give you something to read on your journey, a nice clear Underground map for when you arrive in London and so on.

But if you need a lower resolution version, please just let me know and I'll e-mail one to you.

Michael
