Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau - Atlanta, GA
Collaboration is indeed very hard work! But, thanks to your contribution of time, talent, and resources, the Business of the Americas conference in Atlanta was a highly successful event.
Comments from attendees, speakers, and panelists have been very positive and the early returns from media throughout the hemisphere are complementary not only to the conference, but specifically to Atlanta!
There have been many wins for Atlanta over the two years we have been in competition for the headquarters of the Free Trade Area of the Americas. Your active support and participation in the Business of the Americas conference is another accomplishment positioning Atlanta as a highly significant city within the hemisphere.
It has been said before that "this is a marathon and not a sprint." Atlanta is in the race for the long haul and every new accomplishment in our FTAA plan brings us closer to the ultimate goal of becoming home to the FTAA Secretariat.
On behalf of our ACVB staff and the Hemisphere, Inc. team, thank you for your many contributions and for the tireless support of the Business of the Americas conference.

NACS Show - Las Vegas, NV
It's hard to believe that the NACS Show is now behind us! As we begin the process of collecting data from the show for a formal read on the success, I wanted to share some of our immediate feedback.
Overwhelmingly, we have received positive feedback about the show from both our exhibitors and attendees and are hearing that this was the "best show ever." There are many facets to delivering a show the size of the NACS Show, but to pull it off with "best show ever" praise, is no small feat.
We are fortunate to have strong relationships with our vendors and partners. Your contribution to the NACS Show clearly made a difference.
Thank you for your help in making the NACS Show such a success. We could not have accomplished what we did without your commitment to us.
All the best,
IBM Person-to-Person Technology Executive Council - Lisbon, Portugal
I trust that by now, you've comfortably settled back into the routine at your office after returning from the Person-To-Person Technology Executive Council. That said, I'd like to extend this personal note of thanks to you and your translation team for the valuable contribution you made to your program in Lisbon.
We at IBM are always gratified when we can build long-standing relationships with top-tier suppliers who are willing to go the "extra mile" to help us disseminate our critical messages to our customers. In this elite Person-to-Person forum, the messages were extremely compelling technology implementations for some of IBM's best and most leading-edge client companies. These executives attend Person-to-Person Councils to learn what their peers have done to overcome technical and business challenges. The quality of translation services your team provided and the "can do" attitude with which you always attack our presentation challenges is very much appreciated. Your services are an essential part of the quality experience we strive to provide for these executives.
You and your staff have become an essential part of our Person-to-Person program and I really appreciate all the contributions you make at each event!

In February the United States Federal Government hosted a meeting of the Organization of American States Commission for Inter-American Telecommunications Committee for Radiocommunications. The timing of this meeting was critical for the United States, since it would be the final preparatory meeting for the Americas prior to a World Radiocommunications Conference that was held in Geneva, Switzerland during the month of June. This office was assigned the duties of selecting the venue and making all other arrangements for this meeting. The meeting would involve most of the countries in North, Central, South America, and the Caribbean and would be held in English and Spanish. After consideration of several candidates it was decided to hire Prolingo for interpretation/translation. While discussing terms of agreement with Mr. Mark Stammel we were informed of his capability to put together a team to perform all of the requirements for our meeting. Mr. Stammel submitted a proposal that was considered very reasonable and was well below what other firms had submitted to provide:
- Audio Visual Services
- Interpretation Services
- Document Translation Services
- Meeting Planning Services
- Destination Management Services, Airport Transfers
- Support Staff
- Registration Staff and Materials
- Office Supplies, equipment and electronics
- CD Duplication
- Cyber Cafe Services
Prolingo was contracted to provide these services and did so in an exemplary professional manner. The translation and interpretation of documents from English to Spanish and vice versa was impeccable. The interpreters and translators quickly acquired a working knowledge of the technical radiocommunication language to provide clear succinct understanding in both languages. The Audio Visual team provided excellent services throughout the meeting even when they were asked to divide meeting rooms and to provide services to both rooms simultaneously. Six months after the event this office is still receiving accolades regarding the venue, the professionalism of the staff, the efficiency of document preparation, and the pleasant and helpful demeanor of all Prolingo personnel involved in the meeting from the 22 countries and international organizations that attended the meeting. The meeting was a great success for the United States and the results of the World Radiocommunication Conference turned out to be a resounding success for the Americas region. Many attribute this success to the meeting hosted by the United States in Orlando, Florida.
We would like to highly commend Prolingo for their expertise, efficiency and professionalism before, during and after this meeting. Without question this office would highly recommend this company to anyone considering holding a meeting or conference of any size or importance. Already, personnel from this office have been asked to coordinate the contracting of Prolingo to assist in setting up an upcoming meeting of this same group in the Dominican Republic in March.
