I’ve just discovered (thanks to
@terrysaito) a few video clips promoting IJET-24. Here’s a link to one of them (in English):

What is IJET?
The IJET (International Japanese-English Translation) conference is an annual two-day conference hosted by JAT (Japan Association of Translators), which consists of twenty to thirty sessions and a banquet. The purpose of IJET is to provide a place for professional and personal improvement, information exchange, networking, profitable discussion and socializing for many translation and interpretation industry members.
IJETs are held alternately in Japan and an English-speaking country, and this year the conference takes place on 1-2 June in Hawaii, which means the event could be combined with an extended stay to make a nice early summer holiday on the Pacific islands. Unfortunately it also means it would be a big trip from Europe, too big for me to make, but I certainly hope to attend the event next year, when it returns to Japan.
