About the Dictionary – An Encyclopaedia of Communication
The international congress and meetings industry has grown in recent years in both volume and complexity. Terminology has expanded – especially in such areas as information technology, social media etc – to cover the ever-increasing responsibilities of all involved in the industry: from client to PCO, from supplier to industry; from convention bureaux to congress centres.
The latest edition of the 16-language and 1200-word dictionary is an encyclopaedia of communication for the meetings industry. Intended to be a practical tool, the 1200 words are translated into the 16 languages: Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Danish, English, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish & Ukrainian, presenting an overview of terminology with definitions in English as a further guide. It covers every aspect of the services, techniques, organisation and equipment relating to international events.
We would like to thank the Business Travel Association of Ukraine who recently undertook the task of translating the dictionary into Ukrainian.
