ProZ.com powwow: Meet your colleagues

Hi again,

I've organised another powwow as the last one wasn't very well attended. We will meet again in the foyer of Queens Film Theatre.
QFT is located at 20 University Square, Belfast BT7 1PA, beside the grounds of Queen's University Belfast. The QFT entrance faces the one-way street which runs from University Road to Botanic Avenue, along the north side of the Lanyon Building, the main building of Queen's University. It is sort of hidden in a row of houses! Plenty of parking available.

For a map and instructions for public transport, follow this link:

The venue was kindly supplied by David Johnston, head of department of Languages at Queens.

Please note that every one is welcome: translators, linguists and students. There is no official agenda, just informal meeting of people and exchange of information. I am also trying to find out how to invite ITI members and IoL members to these powwows.

If you can make it, great! Please let me know three days in advance by using the toggle button on the attendence list. That way, I'll know how many to cater for. Tea, coffee, scones and biscuits, they were yummy!!

Hope to see you there,
Laura

Would anyone be able to recommend a reasonably-priced B&B/guest house/hotel near the meeting venue?
