Why Attend Lilt Ascend?

Lilt Ascend 2020

Lilt Ascend 2020 is an opportunity. It’s a chance for thought leaders within and beyond the localization industry from across the world to connect with, learn from, and teach others about the strategies, successes, and challenges that they’ve faced. As Lilt CEO Spence Green shared, our hope is that we can bring together a community and help push the industry forward.

Our fall conference will be filled with discussion, exploration, and new perspective, led by a fantastic group of speakers. This year’s conversations will be focused on Localizing at Scale in an Increasingly Digital World – so why should you attend Lilt Ascend 2020? We’ve outlined a few of the things we’re most excited about below:

Speakers and Topics

We’re excited to be joined by some incredible speakers at this year’s conference. Our speakers and panels will be jumping into some of the key topics trending in the localization industry.

To start, Intel’s Head of Localization Loïc Dufresne de Virel will dive into the importance of leadership in a time of change. Later in the day, we will be joined by Kyunghyun Cho, Associate Professor of Computer Science and Data Science at New York University, to talk more about the impact of artificial intelligence on localization. 

Throughout Lilt Ascend, we’ll hear from a number of other incredible speakers. As the conversation continues around the impact of automation on the workforce, Tom Davenport, Distinguished Professor of IT and Management at Babson College, will discuss what the future of work may look like in the face of AI. 

We’ll also share insights into real-world localization leaders and how they’ve transformed their company strategies into successful operations. Alessandra Binazzi, Head of Global Localization at Asics Digital, will talk through the localization workflows that can optimize for speed while maintaining quality for a global enterprise. Paul Buckley, Localization Project Manager at Canva, will discuss the complexities that many localization experts face while mapping a plan to navigate them.

We’re passionate about what we’re building to help localization teams grow. Lilt’s Head of Product Shaun Johnson will guide attendees through the tools to build and maintain the most successful localization workflows possible. 


Most of all, we’re excited to help spark discussions between localization newcomers and established veterans, startups and long-standing enterprises, and technical builders and strategic thinkers. 

Along with the fantastic speakers and panels throughout the day, we’re planning digital networking and Q&A sessions to help spark conversations that last long after Lilt Ascend concludes. Whether you’re looking to think strategically with peers, explore future technological advances, or simply connect with fellow localization leaders, Lilt Ascend will enable you to do that and so much more.
