What a great resource - thanks, @Mark Breakspear for sharing! I agree that sharing materials ahead of the session is really helpful. Are there any scenarios where you'd also recommend a practice session between the speakers and interpreters? 

Well a practice session is always a good idea but unfortunately tends to be a luxury that is often hard to accommodate with everyone's busy schedules.  I'd highly recommend it though especially for anyone that hasn't spoken whilst being interpreted before...was a first for me earlier this month too!  It's very easy to forget interpreters are there, but if your audio is clear and your physical environment is appropriate then the battle is half-won already!

This looks really interesting ! Is this primarily focused on multi-lingual translations (English to German, Spanish to Portuguese, etc.) or will it also touch on accessibility opportunities (ASL, captioning, etc.)?

Hey @Samantha Minish , thanks for the reply.  We are focusing on the benefits of using technology to improve and simplify language access in on-site events.  There certainly will be conversations about live captioning, and sign language provision too, as well as simultaneous interpretation.  We'll have interpreters for Brazilian Portuguese <> English and live captions in English, German, Spanish and Chinese as well!  Hope you can join us on the 6th!
