The Polyglot Gathering 2018 takes place on May 30 to June 3 2018 in Bratislavia. This is an informal gathering, at the time of writing the website is as dead as a dodo - so we'll have to make do with a couple of youtube videos instead.

LangFest takes place on August 21-26 in Montreal. LangFest describes itself as a magnet for "polyglots". So if you're made from some kind of metal then you presumably can't resist. In their own words: LangFest attendees learn from and gain access to world-class language gurus, entrepreneurs, educators and industry professionals. You will be introduced to cutting edge tools, techniques and technologies to inform and inspire how you learn and use languages or teach them to others. Find out more here.
Love a Conference? The Polyglot Conference has been running since 2013 and takes place in Ljubljana, Slovenia this year (we presume that if you can't pronounce it then you can't go!). It takes place on October 26th to October 28th. Of particular interest is that Friday 26th is dedicated to language learning techniques, so you can find out how to be a more effective language learner. Beyond that, it's also a great chance to practice your language skills with your fellow polyglots. More information is available on their site here.
