Get the right tools for the job!

How could you streamline your work using the latest technology? There’s a vast range of tools aimed at project managers in our industry, so it’s not always easy to figure out what would work best for you. That’s why we created the Pre-conference Technology Day at Elia’s Focus on Project Management. It’s your opportunity to hear about the latest technology solutions on the market and, most importantly, understand how they could make your daily life easier.

We’ve hand-picked some of the industry’s top technology providers to join us in Hamburg and give you a preview of a range of tools offering solutions for almost every aspect of your work, from managing workflows to creating translation memories to invoicing and more. Plus, you’ll get hands-on experience and the chance to chat to the experts, making it so much easier to implement your new-found tech knowledge back at the office.

By investing a few hours in attending the Pre-conference Technology Day, you and your company are sure to reap some serious efficiency rewards for the future. We look forward to seeing you there!
