2019 Annual Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

 

ALC’s Annual Conference is the perfect venue for showcasing your company as a strategic partner to global language service companies (LSCs) of all sizes. This year's conference will take place at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., May 1 – 4, 2019, and we would like to invite you to be part of this historic event.

LSC business owners and senior staff attend the ALC Annual Conference to explore the trends impacting the industry and to consider the challenges on the horizon. As a sponsor or exhibitor, this is an invaluable opportunity to get in front of decision-makers to promote your company’s products and services—positioning yourself as part of the solution.
 
ALC offers exhibit and sponsorship opportunities designed to give you maximum exposure. Networking is the order of the day, and there is ample time built into the program for product demonstrations and company interaction in a relaxed educational and social setting.

Benefits of sponsoring ALC's Annual Conference:

  • Gain visibility for your company within the LSC community.
  • Get in front of your target market.
  • Build brand awareness.
  • Reconnect with customers and engage with a new audience.
  • Generate strong leads.

Attendance
With over 200+ LSC decision makers expected to attend this event, it’s truly one of the leading events in the United States. Being in the heart of Washington D.C., this year’s ALC Conference will bring together various aspects of our industry.  From academia, industry leaders, innovators, vendors and members of the US government (i.e. State Department, FBI, etc.) it will be an excellent opportunity to network, share knowledge, and discuss all facets of our amazing industry.
