Conference announcement:

NATIONAL LANGUAGES AND LITERACY INSTITUTE OF AUSTRALIA LTD PRESENTS:

 NLLIA LANGUAGE EXPO '94

 21-23 July 1994

 Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour
 Sydney, Australia

The importance of language to Australia's future is recognised by the
government through a national policy and funded initiatives - and now its
major role in all facets of Australian life is confirmed by the country's
only national language exposition to be held in Sydney.

The first NLLIA Language Expo was held in Melbourne in 1992 and was an
outstanding success. The second Expo in Sydney will have over 40 more
exhibits and displays, and is expected to attract some 10,000 visitors from
around Australia and the world.

The estimated 160 exhibitors will be drawn from all areas of the languages
sphere: language professionals, publishers, language schools, bilateral
business councils, export education organisations and consultancies,
international and national government representation, and many educational
institutions.

A seminar program will be a major part of Expo, offering an excellent
opportunity for networking and discussion. Central to the seminar program
will be discussions on essential language and business issues led by key
business figures. Topics under consideration for seminars and symposia
include: the role of language in Exporting Australia; language and literacy
in the workplace; bilingualism and community languages; family literacy;
technology in language learning; multimedia communications, and careers in
languages.

A cultural entertainment program featuring performers from Australia's
diverse population and interest groups will be a feature of Expo.

The NLLIA literacy networks (adult literacy and child ESL), are organising
a Research Fair, in which recently completed and current research in these
topical areas will be explored and discussed.

A Business Breakfast, and "Language Excellence in Export" awards are also
parts of Expo.

All of these contribute to an event unprecedented in size and scale for the
language industry - the only event on the calendar which will enable such
wide access to business, government, education, research, and the general
public under the one roof.
