While looking forward to our events in Inverness and Kőszeg, we already need to think where to go next. We therefore send this call to all our members asking for proposals to organise our Interpret Europe Conference 2019.
Our conference shall take place in spring and it shall be planned to ensure it is also accessible for members from countries with lower income. Increasing IE’s membership numbers and perception in Europe are important goals of our conferences. If you took part in one of our recent events, you know that IE conferences consist of a lively mix of presentations, workshops and study visits and offer space for a lot of participation from many of our members.
Organising a conference for Interpret Europe means some work, but it might not only increase the reputation but could also help to raise an income for the organising partner in the host country. Of course, we would support you with all knowledge gained from previous events and you will see that there are tried-and-tested standards available for most steps to be taken.
If you have some experience in organising events, if you could imagine assembling a dedicated conference team in your region, and if you feel you would like to give it a try, please don’t hesitate to send a brief letter of intent to firstname.lastname@example.org, explaining your interest and including your initial suggestions for:
- an appealing conference theme
- a place and venue for about 200 participants
- possible destinations for study visits
- potential supporting partners in the host country.
You should submit your proposal by 31 December 2017 and we intend to select from all submissions by 31 January 2018 in order to introduce the destination in Kőszeg in March 2018.
