GALA launched its Language of Business conference series in 2009. The 3-day annual conference has been held in cities across Europe and North America and draws delegates from around the globe to learn, share, and network. Prior to the disruption caused by COVID-19, annual attendance reached 500 registrants and GALA conferences had become one of the regular gathering places for professionals in the translation and localization sector. GALA conferences have earned a reputation for being open, inclusive places to learn with peers. They have a collaborative atmosphere and a buoyant, energetic vibe.
