Conference feedback

It's the second time in a row that this event makes my Translation Day something to look forward to! Great presentations, lots of insightful comments and conversations. The only wish for the future would be having more companies and direct clients invited to this event, as it is a huge opportunity for all of us to network.
As a presenter I would like to thank Drew for support and professionalism, and all the audience - for their attention and interesting questions. Thank you!

The event was great! Although I couldn't attend every single session for work reasons, I'm thrilled that we get to have access to the content for another 90 days. I loved how varied the topics were. Well done, ProZ, thank you for a great translator's day!

Even though I was not able to attend all sessions due to relevant reasons, I would like to thank deeply all people who have done their best for the success of the conference. It was my first time to attend such conference of high level, and I have to say that I have learned a lot due to the diversity of topics. This is another way of refreshing our mind. Once again thank you for the possibility of downloading individual presentation on demand.

It was really cool!


I couldn't attend, but I wish I could watch the videos on demand. However, those who couldn't attend can't watch them, even if they have a paid membership. It does not make sense.

Thanks for yet another virtual conference.
Being "down under", many of the sessions happen in the middle of the night, so I really appreciate that they are made accessible on demand after the event.
