We’re proud to say that for over 8 years, we’ve been guiding our customers and helping them deliver outstanding personalized and localized experiences for their consumers. And this March, we’re inviting our customers, partners and localization professionals to join us in reaching new heights in San Francisco (March 15) & London (March 22).
Now in its third year, we are transforming our annual user conference into a large scale localization extravaganza and “must attend” event for not only customers but also industry experts, partners and localization enthusiasts. Registrants like Google, Lucidcharts and TNT think so too.
Not yet convinced? Here are five reasons why our Global Ready™ Conference will be the best investment you could make in 2018 to support your global content and localization efforts.
1. Inspirational and informative speakers
Global Ready is not just about good speakers, it’s about speakers who add real value, like leading disruptive technologies analyst Brandon Purcell from Forrester Research. Brandon will impart essential insights on how to stay ahead in our ever-changing digital landscape. We’re also proud to welcome Smartling customer Mackenzie Nicholson of Google, who will discuss how Google MarketFinder helps their customers achieve their globalization goals, from content to payments and customer care to advertising. Last but not least, executive leadership team, including Smartling CEO Jack Welde, will be on hand to present how Smartling’s product strategy is aligned with the initiatives of our customers and the localization industry as a whole.
2. Insightful and educational customer stories
As an attendee you will get to engage and hear your peers talk about their experiences. We have dedicated a substantial portion of the agenda to customers presenting on their challenges and successes. In these sessions you will hear about how digital pioneers took their business to the next level, and how seasoned practitioners maximized their return on investment. In short, you will gain actionable insights that you can immediately apply to your localization efforts.
3. Breakout sessions and workshops
These focused sessions provide the opportunity to explore a theme or area of focus for you, right alongside other folks looking to learn in the same way. We’ll cover modern global marketing techniques, best practices for building your localization roadmap, technical tips and tricks, and other topics that address specific challenges and can help you maximize your opportunities. Specific, involved, collaborative and most importantly effective.
4. Experts at your fingertips
Global Ready will not only give you access to yours peers. You will also have the opportunity to connect with Smartling leadership, product managers, developers, and SMEs. You can sign up for 1:1 meetings with these expert folks and get input that can help set you up for success in 2018 and beyond. Bring your questions and let’s talk.
5. It’s not all work at Global Ready
The action doesn’t stop when the conference sessions end. After a full day brimming with ideas, let’s kick off our shoes and relax over cocktails, food, and music. Make a new friend and tell them about your next international voyage. Learn how to say ‘Hello!’ in another language from a new acquaintance. Localization is about connecting with people, and we at Smartling believe that the best events are the ones that enable us to do just that.
