ASL’s Claire Kelly is Event Co-Ordinator for TCUK and gives details of the ASL expert organisation of this major event. ASL organises the Technical Communication UK (TCUK), the Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators’ (ISTC) annual conference, www.technicalcommunicationuk.com. It is open to everyone involved in writing, editing, illustrating, delivering and publishing technical information. Held each year in September at various venues around the UK, TCUK attracts around 120-130 delegates over three days.
With over 30 different presentations and workshops both from world-renowned speakers and from the sponsoring association ISTC (www.istc.org.uk) own members, it offers three days of intensive learning, with social activities, networking and an impressive vendor exhibition.
TCUK 2018 will be the ninth year of ASL organising the conference for our client, ISTC. ASL are involved in all planning and implementation stages of TCUK. ASL services include the initial venue search, promotional ideas, marketing campaigns, organising awards, arranging gala dinners, dealing with sponsors, speakers and delegates prior to and at the event and we are always on site for the set-up day until the conference comes to a close to make sure that everything runs smoothly.
