IAPTI2018 – Valencia (Spain)

IAPTI is back in Europe in 2018, this time in the beautiful Mediterranean city of Valencia, Spain. Another congress aimed at experienced professionals, giving practical, applicable presentations on many facets of the profession while debating current trends with some of the best translation and interpreting professionals from around the world. Save the date and join us on September 29-30, 2018!
There are some innovative new workshops and presentations being prepared to hone your various skills, but there’ll also be plenty of fun and cultural opportunities for networking in this multi-faceted city.

Meet your colleagues in a town by the beach while enjoying its great food and sights. The birthplace of "paella", Valencia nestles among market gardens, paddy fields and coastline to produce some of the best fresh cuisine you’ll ever taste. Wander with your fellow linguists around the old Roman town and architectural gems throughout the ages until today’s astounding City of Arts and Sciences. Or just wind down with a coffee on a terrace and watch the Mediterranean world go by in the pleasant climate. There are many picturesque excursions nearby, too, like the Albufera Natural Park with its wildlife and stunning sunsets over the lagoon, the wine region of Utiel-Requena, various mountain ranges and countless orange, olive and almond groves. The land made famous by the likes of Blasco IbaƱez and Joanot Martorell also has many cultural sites to visit.
As language experts, you may also be pleasantly surprised to find that most people in the region are bilingual, speaking Spanish and Valencian (Catalan), though they’re happy to greet you in either!
