Brilliant conference Patricia, thank you.

The organisation was exemplary; even the last minute withdrawal of two speakers had no noticeable effect.

The range of topics was different and topical.

Great to see old friends again, make real friends of previously virtual ones and meet a lot of new friends with shared (and original) interests and outlooks.

Bring on Porto next year.

A Great Experience Jun 11, 2012

Excellent conference (highly interesting seminars), excellent people (highly professional colleagues), wonderful town and outstanding organisation (including lots of fun during dinners/lunches and breaks).

I am really sorry for having left earlier because of the flight and for missing Sameh seminar as well as the closing ceremony.

Many thanks to Patricia and to all the organisers and speakers.

I am looking forward to meeting you soonicon_smile.gif

Thank you :-) Jun 12, 2012

Dear Friends,

Time flew by, and I did not get a chance to spend as much time with each of you as I would have liked icon_smile.gif
It was a brilliant conference with wonderful social events and good timing. I was pleased to see old friends again and meet a lot of new colleagues while learning useful tips.

Special thanks to for having involved me in this event. Very special thanks to Patricia who gave me the opportunity to have a session, and to Patrick who gave me valuable feedback, and of course to all staff for choosing such a wonderful place as Barcelona icon_smile.gif

I would also like to thank all the people who attended my session on Saturday. Thanks for being there and making it special. It was a pleasure meeting you all. As promised a handout will be uploaded on the conference page in the next few weeks. In the meantime, please take a moment to send me your feedback and/or comments using the ‘send email’ link on my profile icon_smile.gif

I’ll be looking forward to seeing you all next year in Portugal.

Till then, please feel free to come to my powwow in Brittany in September:

Thanks a lot ! Jun 14, 2012

Dear all,

This was my first ProZ conference, and I definitely hope it won't be the last oneicon_smile.gif

Besides so many interesting things to learn from the presentations, there is also a lot to learn from colleagues of all around the world about how they run their show, not to mention the unforgettable ties of friendship that are being built along these days, that make us feel as part of a community, despite of our most of the time rather solitary activity.
And of course it was nice too to know something more about Barcelona and its way of life.

A big THANK YOU to Patricia who made all this happen, and to Patrick and Leslie and Jessica and every one else involved.

I am looking forward to see you all again next year in Oporto, if not before.

PROs and CONs Jun 14, 2012

Definitely not the best conference I have ever attended, but still it was a good opportunity to meet old and new friends, and learn some new things.
It was a pity that Nigel Saych and Xosé Castro were forced to cancel their sessions at the very last minute, yet, program was redone accordingly.

Thank you! Jun 14, 2012

Thank you Patricia & Leslie for organising this great event, it's been a pleasure to attend (even if I didn't manage to attend some of the sessions I was interested into), to brainstorm with colleagues and to meet old & new friends!

I would also like to thank colleagues who attended my presentation on Sunday morning.
For those who missed the event as well as for those who asked me for some handouts of the presentation, the ppt is now available for you to download at

Hope to see you all soon - in Porto next year at the latest!

Thank you! Jun 14, 2012

Even if I joined 8 years ago, this was my first live conference! The experience was amazing, and I loved both the conference and the funny moments with colleagues.
Very nice organisation, and all of the lecturers were very skilled.
It's just a shame I couldn't stay longer in Barcelona, so I couldn't enjoy the city. But I'll come back for sure.
Thank you, Patricia!
Next year I'm going to Porto conference, as I'll just need to pick up a train.
I hope that we'll be soon able to organise a conference in the city I come from, and where I spend around 100 days per year, which is Napoli.
Hope to meet you very soon!
