2020 Celebrating Languages Without Borders (CLWB) to be Held Virtually

Given the ongoing travel restrictions and social distancing measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CASLT and the BCATML have decided to shift the CLWB 2020 conference to a virtual event instead.

This will obviously impact the trade show component of the conference. Conference organizers are considering ways to create space and opportunities for attendees to meet and interact with publishers and service providers. Your suggestions about how to make this happen are welcome.

Exhibitor registration is temporarily closed to allow organizers to reconfigure the trade show component. Details about the logistics of the virtual conference will be communicated in the coming weeks.

The conference will be held on the originally scheduled dates of October 23 and 24, 2020.

Exhibitors who have already registered will be reimbursed should they decide to withdraw from the conference.
