elia conference 2017
Thread poster: Phyllis Elago
I was wondering if anyone has attended the elia conference and if you thought it was useful and worth the money? Here is the link to the 2017 edition of the event: http://2017.elia-together.org/about/

Thanks for the reply. I am still on the fence about going, but if I do take the plunge, it would definitely be great to meet, thanks I am based in Frankfurt, so travel-wise, it wouldn't be that expensive for me to attend.
Re: the event not being perfect, when I see the presentation topics I do wonder about all those things you brought up, i.e. that since elia is an organisation of LSPs that it might not be all that beneficial to freelancers and that people will just be trying to sell you their stuff.
Since I am not a company, I would be more interested in meeting other translators to potentially partner with and perhaps agencies that pay more on the high side. Otherwise, I wonder if agencies care all that much to meet people in person and if I should be paying for that. It might be different if the agency is small, but if it's larger, then regardless of who I meet on the day, won't they just steer me to their online application form anyway?
