About ND 2022

Networking Days (ND) is the event that helped launch Elia in 2007. It was created with the aim of bringing together Members and other industry stakeholders for learning, knowledge-sharing, and networking. This year, however, the ND has undergone a bit of a change. The new structure provides a unique combination of presentations, discussion groups, and a community that promotes sharing of information and experiences. This is also a great opportunity to build meaningful relationships that will prove beneficial for anyone running a language service company. 

ND 2022 is an unmissable opportunity for veterans and newcomers within the language service industry to address a range of business challenges over the course of two days, as well as exchange viewpoints and socialise with peers. Join us at ND to learn, share, network and have fun!
