Actually I was concerned if the international conferences like translation management europe 2008 or any other one gives a chance to personals to attend by providing free invitations of any kind, (as publicity for the conference or via any kind of mutual cooperation), I want to attend those confrerences but I cannot afford the high cost for attending and travelling ticket,
any advice will help.
best regards

same situation Jul 23, 2008

I am also in the very same situation.I would like to attend at a conference,but I cannot afford the high cost for the entrance ticket and travelling ticket,not to speak about the costs of other expenses such as hotel,transfer and meals. I wonder if there is some kind of financial support available for this,but I doubt.

It is very difficult to obtain airfare, but sometimes there are postings for jobs that require translators to travel abroad. If you can get one of these jobs, then you could probably arrange for some kind of informal conference while you are there.
