The campaign comes as the ATC prepares to celebrate its 40th anniversary at this year’s annual conference, taking place in London from 22nd – 23rd September. As part of the celebrations the ATC would like to create a display which showcases people’s memories of the industry and how it has evolved during the course of the last four decades.
General Secretary for the ATC, Geoffrey Bowden, comments: “We feel very proud to be celebrating such a significant milestone in the history of the ATC. Over the last 40 years we have been privileged to witness some significant changes in the language sector, from the emergence of new technology to the breadth of services offered to companies both at home and abroad.
“We therefore wanted to use this anniversary as an opportunity to reflect on how far the industry has come and would like to invite anyone who has worked within the language sector to submit any memorabilia which brings to life this incredible journey. It really could be anything, from old photographs or technology to their first translation dictionary – the more obscure the better!”
In addition, the ATC is also inviting paper proposals ahead of the conference, specifically around the topics of:
- Technology to change the industry
- Smarter working to increase profitability in an increasingly competitive marketplace
- Options to grow your business – organic, acquisition, merger
- Driving up standards – ISO and beyond
- Creative marketing, effective selling strategies to ensure a ROI
- Pricing strategies to increase margins and volumes
Proposals should be submitted online at http://www.atc.org.uk/conference/anual-conference before 18th April, 2016.
