Is anybody planning to attend the upcoming Localization World conference in Bonn? (http://www.localizationworld.com/LWBonn2005/index.htm)

Has anybody attended last year's edition, and is willing to share their impressions?

Thanks!
Roberta

Yes, I attended Localization World Bonn in 2004 as a speaker, panel moderator, and booth representative. I was supposed to go to Localization World Seattle 2003 but phone conferenced in for a meeting because it was at the time our first child arrived.
Localization World started out its first year with 2 conferences per year, then expanded to 3 times per year. It has regularly had over 350 attendees at each conference representing 150 companies on average. The attendance at the various Localization World conferences have shown a significant upturn in the overall translation/localization market since the impact of 11 Sept a few years ago.
I usually only now go to conferences that have much visibility and networking impact (because I have to take days off day job to attend), and LW is definitely an excellent networking opportunity. They have a Localization Network service online to find other people to network with before and after the conference.

Tons of booths to visit to see the tools and services and to find agencies to work with. An entire range of booths that stretch out throughout the center.

Lunch and coffee breaks are included.

A set of computers with internet connections for checking email onsite for free at the conference.

Usually 2-4 separate tracks of sessions in parallel.

More of a focus on industry and enterprise level transation and localization solutions. Yet there are freelancers who attend.

I want to be able to go again this year to the Bonn 2005 event, but not sure I can attend since I have some significant deadlines around that time.

I think it is a very worthwhile event. It's the one I choose above all other conferences.

meet other Proz member attending LW Bonn May 2, 2005

Thank you Jeff for the useful info!

Francesco, unfortunately I'll not be ble to attend...

But I think this thread might be useful for any Proz member who will attend to get in touch with each other, so that you can have a chance to meet at the event.

Enjoy and network!

cheers,
Roberta
