Jonckers at Locworld Silicon Valley
Silicon Valley, San Francisco was the venue for the 35th Locworld conference and the location did not disappoint. The sun shone on the Santa Clara Convention Centre as it played host to LSP’s and businesses from all over the world all focussed on localization services. An impressive and influential roster of Locworld Silicon Valley Keynote Speakers, including industry representatives from TAUS, CSA and Women In Localization as well as major global brands such as Adobe, Oracle, Netflix and Uber set the tone for an amazing few days.
After Dinner Drinks
Jonckers were lucky enough to not only attend but sponsor the conference again this time around. Our second sponsorship slot of 2017 and the support and comments we received for our part in the Silicon Valley event were amazing. Hosting the After Dinner Drinks Event at the outstanding Levi’s Stadium, home to the San Francisco 49ers, was definitely a highlight for us. Hundreds of professionals from the industry as well as some of Silicon Valley’s finest joined us for an evening of fun and frolics with Sourdough Sam (49ers Official Mascot). Great company, food and conversation made the evening a real success and we look forward to continuing our support of Locworld and even bigger and better gatherings in the future.
US Business Unit Director, Martyna Pakula and her team drove activity at the event. Our booth was a hive of activity with BDM’s Lucas and Fadwa networking tirelessly as well as the ever present Orlando Shih proving she is a hub of information as she presented our WordsOnline platform to the masses.
There were many notable highlights from the conference; being interviewed by Locworld’s Anne-Marie Colliander Lind for the Locworld media channel, discussing the General Theory of a Localization Company with Locworld stalwart Renato Beninatto and sharing ideas and industry views lunch with some of the industries greatest minds, there are just too many to detail! Hundreds of people visited our stand and it was a real privilege to be able to present our services to them. We made some great new contacts and long may our relationship with Locworld continue to flourish as we look forward to Locworld 36 in Tokyo.
