SPONSORSHIPS

Global Meeting Services, The Unicode Consortium, and the Transdex associations (ACCTI, CSN, GALA, and TILP) invite you to show your support in sponsoring our first co-located event.

The 26th Internationalization & Unicode Conference (IUC26) co-located with Transdex, will be held September 7-10, 2004, in San Jose, CA. IUC26 is the premier technical conference worldwide for both software and Web internationalization.

This event promises to be an exciting opportunity for sponsors to be able to promote themselves to a wide variety of participants, from the technical to the business communities, as well as representatives of the localization, globalization, and internationalization sectors, coming together to share information.

Each IUC conference covers a wide range of Unicode and internationalization topics, while exploring certain topics in greater depth. The theme for IUC26 is "Unicode and Internationalization: Best Practices in the Networked World".

Transdex will provide information and presentations on a wide range of GILT industry topics. With presentations, classes, and plenary sessions from leading industry organizations such as ACCTI, CSN, GALA, and TILP. This event is the perfect opportunity to cross-train your internationalization and localization staff and managers.
