I'm a speaker and attending the full thing. You'll notice me - if you don't, blame your eyesight. :D

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

Will be in love with the night
And pay no worship to the garish sun

Polyglot Conference Bratislava 2018

Postby drp9341 » Fri May 04, 2018 3:52 pm

Hello everyone! I will be going to the polyglot conference in Bratislava this June. I was searching through the forums looking to see if there was a thread where people could talk about it, and maybe we could have a "meet up."

If anyone is going, and would like to hang out or meet while there, post in the thread! (and then send a PM) but post in the thread first, so that other people know that people are coming :)

See yous soon!

You for sure meant the Polyglot Gathering. (The polyglot conference 2018 is in October in Ljubljana.) There is a thread here. Some people will meet already in Vienna beforehand if I remember correctly.

I will be arriving on the 28th along with Rdearman, Zenmonkey and Daveprine. I’m sure we will manage to meet up. We all hung out a bit last year.

If you guys are interested, PM me and let's create a whatsapp group. I don't know what anyone looks like enough to recognize them in a crowd that size.

That's an idea, yeah. Although I think most of us will recognize each other. And I've met a fair few people from the conference anyway.

But in general I think most people will easily find me as:

a) I'm a speaker
b) I'm very tall (1m95) and stand out enormously in a crowd
c) I'm trans, so due to my dress and looks I will stand out anyway.
d) I'm a familiar figure to a bunch of the crowd
