Thursday night drinks prior to the conference Sep 22, 2006

Dear All,
I'm pleased to inform you that Rebekka and I have hired a separate room at the Grape bar in the centre of Edinburgh for some pre-conference warm-up drinks. Having said that, the event is open to ALL ProZians, their guests and other language specialists who happen to be in the area, but may not wish to sign up for the conference. The entry is FREE, but everyone will be expected to pay for their own drinks or snacks. So if you're not planning to attend the conference, you're still m

Dear All,
I'm pleased to inform you that Rebekka and I have hired a separate room at the Grape bar in the centre of Edinburgh for some pre-conference warm-up drinks. Having said that, the event is open to ALL ProZians, their guests and other language specialists who happen to be in the area, but may not wish to sign up for the conference. The entry is FREE, but everyone will be expected to pay for their own drinks or snacks. So if you're not planning to attend the conference, you're still more than welcome to join in and benefit from an evening of networking and socialising. The main purpose of the event is to mingle and get to know the crowd rather than a sit-down meal, so we haven't made any specific dinner arrangements. Food ranging from shared platters to sandwiches, burgers, salads and various main courses will be available to order, but you might equally choose to go out for dinner first and join us for drinks later.

Further details:
Grape
13 St Andrews Square, New Town, Edinburgh EH2 2PA
MAP: http://www.edinburgh-festivals.com/cityguide.cfm?subtype=eat-restaurant-british&vid=1615

Time: from 8pm onwards

Please let us know, if you're planning to attend and bring some guests, so that we can get an idea about numbers.

We look forward to meeting you!
Katharina & Rebekka

BrowniZ and ID verification Nov 7, 2006

Dear All
Those of you who have attended powwows before will probably know that powwow attendance is awarded with BrowniZ. If you'd like to take advantage of this, please have your ProZ ID number with you on Thursday night. There'll be a table with attendance sheets where you can enter your name and ProZ ID number. We will file an attendance report after the conference - don't think we'll manage beforeicon_wink.gif

Wonderful job Nov 13, 2006

This was not only informative and professional, it was plain fun. The two of you deserve credit for your efforts, and I believe we will see even better attended conferences in the future as a result.

Fantastic conference Nov 13, 2006

I've attended many conferences and translator events, but I can honestly say that I haven't enjoyed any of them as much as this, my first ProZ conference. Roll on Budapest!

I am of the same opinion Nov 13, 2006

The amount of hard work, organizing and good will that went into setting up this wonderful conference was tangible and most appreciated. I did have a lot of fun, made great new friends and learned new things. My heartfelt thanks to you both! x

Not only did I learn much more than I dared to hope, I enjoyed myself more than I ever thought possible! Met so many great people and am even more motivated and enthused about my profession than I was before the conference! Kudosicon_wink.gif to you both for putting on an excellent event! I'm going to do my best to be in Budapest in 2007!
