#1 Event Rule: No Selling

This event is adopting an increasingly popular rule for localization mixers and events: no selling. We want everyone to feel comfortable here. This does not prevent you from exchanging business cards or telling people about your company when you are asked, but we want to keep this far from the killing grounds where aggressive salespeople scare away everyone else. Seriously.

Long Term Association

As Utah's economy grows - and the Silicon Slopes become a larger tech hub - we see a need to form a localization community that fosters collaboration, professional growth, and sharing of new ideas. Silicon Slopes Localization aims to hold multiple events like this each year to help support and strengthen Utah's localization professionals.
