Call for Sponsors for WorldSpeak 2024

7 Mar 2024 4:56 PM | Antonieta Herrera (Administrator)

Business is now global, and so is the Canadian Language Industry Association’s annual conference. 2024 marks the inaugural year for WorldSpeak, the new name for our annual conference which propels our gathering onto the international stage. 

Connecting Cultures, Bridging Minds 

The elevation begins with where it is being hosted - Glendon College at York University in Toronto. Glendon College is recognized as the official Southern Ontario Centre of Excellence for French-language and bilingual postsecondary education, as well as being home to the Canadian Language Museum

The event will take place in the spacious auditorium of the Centre of Excellence on May 24, with a welcome reception and gala dinner on May 23 at the Canadian Language Museum. 

WorldSpeak 2024 will mark the beginning of an annual collective gathering of academia, business leaders, and language industry rock stars on the international stage. 

As an event or annual sponsor, you will have promotional access to our extensive membership of Canadian language service providers, international guests, and non-members who choose to just attend the largest Canadian language industry event of the year. 

Enhance Your Brand Through Sponsorship 

Event sponsorship guarantees high visibility to all attendees. If your business specializes in language industry services, you cannot miss this opportunity to advertise to academics, Canadian business leaders, international industry thought leaders, and language studies students who are the future of our sector. 

The requirement to be an event sponsor is $1,000. 

If your company is already or would like to become an annual CLIA sponsor at any level, please refer to our website for the event benefits that you are entitled to. CLIA sponsorship committee members will be in touch to help coordinate your benefits for the conference.
