Every year, the UK attracts a very large number of international conferences and meetings.

London and other major cities such as Belfast and Edinburgh offer excellent convention centres equipped with built-in booths.

You will also find hotels around the whole Region where meetings may be held and mobile booths easily set up.

Interpretation may be organised in different ways, according to the client's needs and the premises chosen.

Simultaneous interpreting: Interpretation as the speaker is speaking, using soundproofed interpretation booths.

Consecutive interpretation: The interpreter takes notes and interprets what has been said while the speaker pauses.

AIIC interpreters have provided their services at some of the most prestigious events organised in the UK, including the London 2012 Olympic Games and the 2013 UK presidency of the G8.
