t-update 21 virtual will be taking place from Thursday, 15th till Friday, 16th April 2021. Commenting the EUATC’s conference lead, Marta Aragão, pictured, said: “As one of the world’s leading independent, non-profit think-tanks devoted to serving business and society for over 25 years, EUATC is uniquely positioned to provide the industry with a 360° view of the COVID-19 crisis and insights for what’s ahead.
“In T-UPDATE 21 virtual we’ll be providing access to information and resources to help language industry leader make decisions with greater confidence.
Continuing she said: “In 2021, we decided to go into the wild virtual world so that we could take industry knowledge to people’s desks. This way we can embrace our DNA as an umbrella organisation based in Europe but with strong links and partnerships with sister associations all over the world.
“In t-update 21 virtual we’ll surprise everyone with great talks, virtual breakout rooms to allow attendees to gain more information and actionable insights, and the programme will include networking, happy hours and all the fun you can get on a virtual environment. We can’t wait to tell you more about our ideas! You’ll be surprised/amazed.”
One of the main changes in the t-update 21 virtual edition is going to be the ditching of the regular conference in-line conference format of 20 – 30 minute talks about technical and industry expertise. “We’ll focus on bringing relevant and global information and knowledge, but we’ll be using technology to put the participants centre stage – making them the star of the show. They’ll become part of a powerful and exclusive group of decision-makers who will get to contribute towards reshaping the future of our industry.
Concluding Aragão said:”But we don’t want to be virtual forever. As soon as we are Covid-free we’ll go for a hybrid model, as we know everyone is longing for the privilege of meeting industry colleagues in person again. And so are we!”
