Client speakers and speakers from TransPerfect will highlight new GlobalLink product releases and innovations related to translation management, website localization, machine translation, AI data annotation, and component content management.
This year's virtual format provides participants the opportunity to tailor their experience by industry, with specialized sessions for life sciences, medical device, and travel/hospitality, among others. Functional tracks include translation management and workflow, website localization, and global customer experience.
Going into its sixth year, GlobalLink NEXT is known for client spotlight sessions and thought leadership panels. The 2020 lineup offers insights from 25 global leaders, including Avis, Google (News - Alert), Hilton, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, Pfizer, Procter & Gamble, Rockwell Automation, Rosewood Hotels, UPS, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, and Xylem. More speakers will be added to the program in the coming weeks.
Matt Hauser, TransPerfect's Senior Vic President of Content Solutions, noted, "The theme for this year's event is 'Digital Acceleration,' and we're very excited to deliver more than 100 sessions designed for attendees whose content needs have evolved in a world that has quickly gone digital. We have built the program so that attendees can consume content at their own pace, even after the official event dates are over, in acknowledgement of all our clients working remotely."
TransPerfect President and CEO Phil Shawe stated, "With more people spending larger blocks of time online, the need for organizations to communicate with global consumers and to create content using best-practice technology has never been more important. Of course, we look forward to the day when we can again host our GlobalLink NEXT attendees face to face, but 2020's virtual environment offers some unique advantages-such as the ability to greater customize content. We look forward to embracing this format and delivering a truly first-class conference experience for attendees."
