Every year, the ATD International Conference & EXPO brings together over 70 delegations, totaling 2,000 members of our global talent development community. Despite the unprecedented challenges the world continues to face, we remain committed to providing opportunities for learning and networking. That's why for 2023, we're offering a range of unique ways for you to participate in this year's event, ensuring that learning professionals from all over the world can connect and engage with one another.

As an international attendee, you'll have access to a unique opportunity to fully participate in ATD23. Our sessions offer translations in multiple languages, allowing you to fully engage with the content and connect with other L&D professionals from around the world. We believe that sharing knowledge and finding solutions is key to advancing the industry. Our ATD Global team is here to help you every step of the way in your conference journey.

Translations Services

Available at ATD23 for our international attendees, we are offering translation and subtitles services free of charge to our attendees. 

In San Diego, we are offering translation in more than 25 languages during the three keynotes sessions and all concurrent sessions. Using only your phone, you’ll be able to scan a QR code that will give access to translations throughout the conference.

For virtual attendees, captioned subtitles will be available in Arabic, English, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, Portuguese, Spanish, and more to attendee once live session recordings become available on the virtual platform.

Want to Join or Form a Delegation?

The best way to experience ATD23 is when you enjoy it with your team or local community. International delegations is your opportunity to bring a group of five or more from your country to come together and enjoy the conference together to share ideas and learnings. The best part it that you can enjoy either ATD23 San Diego or Virtual at a discounted rate.
