I just saw this on the open Facebook page:

"Dear participants of Polyglot Gathering 2017, have you filled in our survey yet? If so, thank you! It's very valuable information to us.

If not, please do so by the end of June using the link that we sent you in the email on June 16. We really want to know what you thought and what could be improved.

Please do not post the link of the survey here, it is strictly for the participants of this year's Gathering. If you can't find it, write us an email.

Thank you all very much!"

Did anybody get this survey? I didn't.

Does anyone know if they'll publish the survey's results and when will get to know the place of the next gathering?

I would expect it to take at least a few months before we know anything.

The latest issue of the Universala Esperanto-Asocio's journal Esperanto did a nice write-up on the conference:

Poliglotoj de la tuta mondo kunvenis en Bratislavo

Kunveno de plurlingvuloj (Polyglot Gathering) okazis en la Ekonomia universitato en Bratislavo de la 31-a de majo ĝis la 4-a de junio 2017 sub la aŭspicio de Miroslav Lajčák, la ministro de eksterlandaj kaj eŭropaj aferoj de Slovaka Respubliko. Partoprenis 458 poliglotoj el 52 landoj. Dum la renkontiĝo okazis 95 prezentadoj en 4 sekcioj pri diversaj temoj en kelkaj lingvoj. La renkontiĝo de poliglotoj estas neformala aranĝo, kiu celas plifortigon de la komunumo de poliglotoj. La daŭrigo de la internaciaj lingvaj agadoj kaj aranĝoj en Slovakio estos Lingva festivalo titolita „LingvaFest´2017“, kiu okazos denove en la Ekonomia universitato en Bratislava la 22-an kaj la 23-an de septembro 2017 okaze de la Tago de la eŭropaj lingvoj. Tie la partoprenontoj povas ĝojatendi pre­zentadon de novaj lerniloj kaj metodoj de instruado, diskutojn pri diversaj lingvaj temoj, lecionojn de fremdaj lingvoj, prezentadon de eldonejoj kaj edukaj institucioj, lingvajn mini-kursojn kaj riĉan kulturan programon. Estas ĝojige, ke la festivalo estas senpaga!

Well, the kunveno wasn't really senpaga, but the price was very reasonable.

Interesting thread here!

I don't really see me traveling to further Gatherings (I attended in Berlin twice!), but I like to follow the activities of the other people going there. Having been at a Polyglot Gathering twice is my personal privilege!

Kind regards,

Fasulye
