    Another interesting conference in 2017:
    ADÜ Nord, the Hamburg-based North German association of translators and interpreters, will mark its 20th anniversary by organizing their fifth conference (5. ADÜ-Nord-Tage 2017) on 19 to 21 May 2017 at the “nh hotel” in the hanseatic city of Hamburg, Germany´s gate to the world.
    “Interpreters and translators on a level playing field with industry, commerce and public institutions”
    This is the motto of the ADÜ Nord conference that will be held in German and will feature a total of 7 plant tours and guided tours, 10 workshops, 14 papers and one plenary session over the course of three days.
    Professionality, marketing, data protection, organizing your work, and many more subjects will cover diverse areas of interest. Both the novice and the old hand will be able to gain and exchange hands-on advice for their work and help them stay at the cutting edge of developments in the translation world.
    Apart from the coffee breaks in between the different events, a networking café open all day and, for the first time, a market place with a jobs exchange let you meet colleagues and also reps from various companies.
    A buffet and dance music in the time-honoured hall of the Hamburg Chamber of Crafts will be the highlight of the ADÜ Nord anniversary celebrations on Saturday evening.
    Registration for the conference is open on the ADÜ website at http://www.adue-nord.de/5-adue-nord-tage/ If you register before 15 February 2017, an attractive early bird discount will apply!

    Hello Pieter, and thank you so much for the great list.

    Just wanted to let you know that the next edition of Know Your Worth: Marketing and Negotiating for Interpreters seminar by Julia Poger (AIIC, ATA) will be taking place in Moscow, on 4-5 February 2017.

    Would appreciate it if you could possibly include it in the list.

    It is a two-day seminar aimed at any interpreter who wishes to improve relationships with clients and prospects, gain more respect, negotiate higher fees, and find out more about the European and US markets. Concepts such as branding, selling, client relationships, pricing, negotiating tips, and “coopetition” will also be discussed, all illustrated with real-life examples.

    Here’s a link to our website: https://kyw-seminar.com/

    And here’s a link to our event page on the AIIC website: http://aiic.net/events/390/know-your-worth-understanding-marketing-and-negotiating-for-interpreters-04-feb-2017

    Many thank in advance!

    This is very cool, I wish a list like this existed couple of years ago when I wanted to go to much more conferences.

    Btw. are any of you guys also using these conferences as an excuse to see the world? 🙂

    Some of my conference trips were totally biased by the place they were held on 🙂
