Meet Central Europe, the regional conference, which was kick-started with a grant from the EUATC and this year takes place in Budapest 17 – 19 October, has won the first EUATC Association Initiative Award. The accolade was presented by Christos Ellinides, Acting Director General of the European Commission’s DGT during an awards evening on the first day of the Ethical Business Summit held in London.
“We were impressed by all the collaboration happening right across Europe and it was genuinely difficult to separate the nominations from the dozen associations that entered. However, the MCE conference ticked so many of the boxes, particularly when it comes to collaboration, it managed to edge out all the other truly impressive initiatives to win the Award.”
The commended nominations were:
Belgian Quality Translation Association (BQTA)
Association of Professional Language Service Providers (Proford)
