Change of perspective: challenges of organizing a hybrid event

At KTLC, we pride ourselves on being a platform for the entire translation and localization industry: freelancers, LSPs of all sizes, localization teams, cooperatives, translation studies researchers, QA and testing teams, copywriters, tech writers, medical writers, and everyone else working with languages. However, the challenge arises in maintaining this inclusivity when the conference is hybrid. Typically, onsite attendees engage with others at the venue, while online participants often find themselves isolated in front of their screens.

Meet Gridaly, our new platform

To address this, we have chosen an innovative platform called Gridaly, developed in Poland. Gridaly allows all conference attendees, including onsite and online participants, as well as speakers, exhibitors, and partners, to leverage features such as smart matching based on professional interests, managing attendee calendars for online and onsite meetings, providing detailed profiles to continue conversations even after the event wraps up, and much more.

Exciting networking

To further enhance onsite networking opportunities, we have partnered with the Warsaw Convention Bureau, the city’s hub for event organizers and service providers. Through this collaboration, we have secured the Golden Tulip Warsaw Centre hotel as the perfect conference venue. Additionally, we have organized guided tours of Warsaw’s must-see attractions on September 27, an exploration of the city’s dark side on September 29 (including a poster workshop and vodka tasting), and a riverboat cruise on the Vistula River on the afternoon of September 29. To top off the experience, for the networking dinners on 27 and 28 September, we personally selected nearby restaurants with the right ambiance, seating plans suitable for mingling, and delicious food and drinks to satisfy even the most discerning foodies. The exact locations will be disclosed soon.

Lectures, roundtables, or webinars?

If you are into conferencing without frills, our speakers will make sure you leave the event with a hefty portion of new knowledge, inspiration and food-for-thought. Listen to them onsite or online on 27 September with all presentations streamed live, and on 28 September, take part in exclusive roundtables onsite or get early access to online presentations, depending whether you join us in Warsaw or from the comfort of your own home or office. The presentations overlap, but we planned for that, too: our innovative platform Gridaly enables us to share the recorded videos straight away, for your watching pleasure.
