20 April: longer sessions

BP18 Translation Conference Vienna 20 April Hotel MarriottBP18 Translation Conference comes to a truly classy venue: Hotel Marriott in central Vienna.  The hotel is located at Parkring 12a, just 100 meters from Gartenbaukino, the venue of the first day.

This second day (Friday, 20 April) will follow a more traditional conference format, with 50-minute sessions in 2 or 3 parallel tracks.  We’ll have the hotel’s ballroom, on the left of this photo, which can be divided into smaller units.

Once again, we’ll have long coffee breaks, spread over the entire floor.  For lunch we can use both sides of the floor, as well as the hotel restaurant, which is behind us if we stand at the vantage point of this photo.

The day will probably start around 9:20 and last until around 17:20.

The sessions

We’ll have 18 highly informative sessions in 3 paralell tracks. Click on the session cards for more detailed information.  The schedule and room allocations will be announced 2-3 weeks before the conference.
