About the date Jul 15, 2010

It's my first time attending to this kind of event, so I apology if this is a stupid question.

It's clear that's going to be on September 30th, 2010 but what about the time the conference begins?

Thank you.

Hi Leslie,

Does this mean the Conference takes 12 hours? Is there any schedule yet? Are there any breaks?

Hi Walter -

Great question! The conference will include sessions and panel discussions scheduled at specific times throughout the full 12 hour period with many items available on demand. The other aspects of the virtual environment: chat, networking, exhibit booths will be available all day.

A schedule will be made available in the coming weeks so attendees will be able to plan their day accordingly.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!

Hi Aug 2, 2010

Thanks for this great opportunity. I am sure it will be a wonderful and informative day. But being Sept. 30th, the World Translators' Day, can we expect for the maximum response and participation? Last year we were busy on organizing and conducting a powwow on that day.

Extended opportunity to interact with Virtual conference content Aug 2, 2010

Thanks for your comment. Last year we had over 6,900 attendees enter the environment at some point during the day.

While it is great that you are organizing and conducting a pow-wow. The virtual conference allows translation professionals to gather and celebrate their profession online no matter where they are around the globe.

The conference will be live from 10:00 GMT - 22:00 GMT giving even those who have plans plenty of time to pop in for a little while. In addition, those that attend the conference on Sept 30th will have access to session content for 90 days.

I hope you will have a few minutes on the Sept 30th to stop by and see the conference in action.

Regards,

Leslie MacFadyen
