BITcon© is the first conference that brings together experts on the ever-changing dynamics of the business of internationalization and localization with the thought leaders of rapidly evolving technologies. Managers and Web, engineering, and localization specialists will learn how to incorporate best practices into business operations and plan for successful economical modernization of their applications, processes and tools. Each BITcon© conference focuses on different topics and regions.

This conference will focus on internationalization business, technology, and education for the explosive East, South, and Southeast Asian markets. It will deal with key issues with developing products for Asian markets, plus the burgeoning field of taking advanced products developed in Asia and targeting them at large markets in North America and Europe.
