Hello everybody,

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN. Please go to the conference page

Former Royal Palace in Buda

This is powwow page is used to indicate preliminary interest in a Conference that would take place in the spring of 2007 in Budapest.

Timing: April 29th and 30th (Sunday and Monday). As May 1st will fall on a Tuesday, I assume that in most European countries Monday will be a "bridge", so we can benefit from a 4-day weekend. The official program of the conference is planned to take place in the middle of this long weekend (i.e. Sunday and Monday).

Additional paying sessions are planned for Saturday (Trados and Deja Vu training, and an ATA exam sitting) as well as on Tuesday (Trados training).

You will be of course welcome to arrive earlier and leave later. If there are enough people interested, something will be organized for Saturday and Tuesday as well (sightseeing, etc.).

I found a very good venue for the conference: excellent location, reasonable prices, several conference rooms. More details in the Accommodation Forum

Budapest is easily accessible from around Europe and beyond, served by budget and regular airlines from amost 100 cities.

April 27th (Friday) powwow - First encounter
April 28th (Saturday) powwow - Large pre-conference powwow
April 30th (Monday) powwow - Farewell dinner and party

Conference date Jul 31, 2006

Hello everyone,
As you may see above, I initially set the dates of the conference for April 30th and ay 1st, Sunday and Monday, respectively. Since May 1st falls on a Tuesday, I assumed that in most European countries, Monday will be a "bridge", or else it can be taken off easily. Is this a correct assumption?
Are these dates convenient for most people? If not, what other dates would you be more confortable with?
I should be very hard pressed to change the dates, as it's always

I should be very hard pressed to change the dates, as it's always difficult to come up with a date that suits everyone, and I already made an arrangement with the hotel and conference venue for these dates. In any case, I would be glad to hear your opinion.

great job, Csaba Sep 13, 2006


You're doing a great job coordinating this (all the way from Indianapolis, Indiana)! I'm still definitely in for attending, and please allow me to help coordinate, interpret for attendees, whatever I can do to participate and coordinate with you! I'm very familiar with BP, have spend a year there, plus numerous visits to inlaws in Gazdagret.
