In Conferences, ELT and ELL, News & Updates (from the CBO) on 03/11/2013 at 12:18 pm

ELT & ELL Conf Calendar (TG ver)

8

As you all know, I don’t usually get the Conference Calendar rolling till mid-November – but a couple of people asked me if I can spread the word about a handful of events that were coming up in…

Canım Türkiyem (TG Ver 03)

…just after Summer. 

8

So, I did Ver 1.0 of the “Conference Calendar” a coulple of months back…then, evolved this into Ver 2.0 in October – this is the second expanded version!

…and, as you might also remember, I usually start with the one that only the “rich kids” can go to!

8

The International events over 2013-14… 

So, here you go…(still) without the “sauce” (that will be in Ver 3.0):

8

Of course, we have the “BIGGIES”:

8

  • 22-25 January (2014)
  • BETT 2014 – London (ExCel London – London’s Royal Docks)
  • Theme: Generic 

8

  • 13-15 March (2014)
  • TESOL Arabia (20th International Conference) – Location – TBC
  • Theme: TBC

8

  • 26-29 March (2014)
  • TESOL 2014 – Portland, Oregon (International & EL Expo)
  • Theme: ELT for the Next Generation (See also #tesol14 on Twitter)

8

  • 02-05 April (2014)
  • IATEFL 2014 (48th Annual International IATEFL Conference & Exhibition) – Harrogate (International Conference Centre)
  • Theme: ELT for the Next Generation

8

8

…but, I also wanted to add a couple of others (that have great potential):

8

  • 11-15 November (2013)
  • The Macmillan Online Conference 2013Speaker Schedule
  • Theme: BE, ELT, EAP (Join for FREE right here)

8

8

  • 03-09 August (2014)
  • Pilgrims – 40th Anniversary Conference, Kent University, Canterbury,
  • Theme: TBC (Details available on 01 December – @PilgrimsTT on Twitter)

8

but...

8

…I know why you have really come to this post…the conferences and events where we can get some decent çay and (even a simit):

8

CONFERENCE cay ve simit (2013 to 14) TG ver

8

Seriously, have you ever had a simit in London…in Ireland…in Harrogate (!)

…just don’t get me started on that crappy “tea” they serve there…!

8

Türküz, Doğruyuz, Çalışkanız…ve daha güzel çay (da) yaparız!

8

Canım Türkiyem has been building up a great reputation for its events over the past few years. The çay and simit help, of course, but it is the sheer range of our events that really does the job…and the dedication of the teams that put these events on!

8

So, without further ado – here are the ones we currently have on the calendar, thus far:

8

NOVEMBER 2013

DECEMBER 2013

MAY 2014

JUNE 2014

As ever, there are many, many more in the pipeline – I just love it when all the schools start scrapping for those ever-so-valuable weekends in March and April…but not as much as all the publishers and their staff!

I’ll let you know more detials as more events are confirmed – but do drop us a comment or 3, if you hear of one that is a “go”!
