After a successful initial meet-up in 2016, the trend continues this year!
In early 2016, Julien Demarty, Managing Partner of Over the Word, took the initiative to organise a lunch for his Lyon-based peers and counterparts, attended by many of the region’s translation industry players. A number of Lyon-based companies met at Paul Bocuse’s Brasserie Le Nord.
In light of the success of the 2016 event, on Wednesday 5 July this year twelve people from nine Lyon-based translation agencies attended a dinner at Maison Villemanzy.
Get to know each other in a friendly, informal setting, share ideas and information, and maybe even seek opportunities for forming partnerships.
The meet-up was also an opportunity to discover the latest technologies on the market and get up to speed with industry developments: knowing where we’re placed and where others are going is vital for any company that wants to grow, or simply exist! Understanding the market is an essential part of this process.
The gathering is rather informal, with the simple goal of meeting once or twice a year and enjoying some Lyonnaise delicacies. The aim is not to gather every player in the Lyon translation market, nor represent any part of the market in particular. Anyone wishing to attend is welcome: the more, the merrier!
If you, too, are eager to meet and talk to your fellow translation colleagues, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
The “club” isn’t just for Lyon-based firms, either; every company from the Rhône-Alpes region is welcome to attend.
