Next month, the MadWorld Europe 2018 conference will debut in Prague, Czechia, at the beautiful Carlo IV Dedica Anthology hotel in the city’s historic Old Town. Spread out over three full days of learning, the conference features 20 main conference sessions, four advanced training workshop sessions, a Technical Support Lounge, and four evening networking events.
With just over a month to go, our short guide below can help you prepare to make the most of the conference.
Plan Your Conference Schedule
With a rich variety of conference sessions and topics spread out over two conference tracks, having a game plan for which sessions to attend in advance can be helpful. Are you looking for advanced strategies on CSS or jQuery, or tips for your next translation project? What stage are you in your documentation migration? Are you working on a large team, or the sole technical writer in your organization?

Are there two sessions of interest to you being presented at the same time? Good news: at the end of the conference, we’ll provide you with the download links to all presentations along with the session audio recordings, so you can dive into each and every session at any time.
Visit the Technical Support Lounge
One of the more popular features of the conference is the Technical Support Lounge, where you can get one-on-one support with members of our technical support team. Do you have a question about a particular project? Can’t seem to find the right way to implement a new feature? Bring your laptop or use one of our workstations, and any questions you have, and we’ll be happy to assist.
You can drop in any time during the main conference or make an appointment that fits your schedule. The lounge also features charging stations for all of your devices, lounge chairs, fresh coffee and water to keep you energized all conference long.
Network with Your Peers and Industry Experts
MadWorld Europe attendees come from organizations from all over the region – from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies and from universities to large government agencies. You’ll be able to exchange ideas and build one-on-one relationships with people who have dealt with similar challenges, and learn best practices and processes to tackle those hard-to-solve situations.
The evening events are designed to maximize your networking opportunity, and gives you the chance to meet like-minded users. Our schedule of networking events include:
- Tuesday Welcome Reception in the Opera Ballroom at the Carlo IV, The Dedica Anthology hotel
- Wednesday Vltava River Cruise and Cocktail Reception onboard the Bohemia Rhapsody luxury cruise vessel
- Thursday Main Conference Closing Reception in the Outdoor Foyer at the Carlo IV, The Dedica Anthology hotel
- Friday Advanced Training Workshop Happy Hour in the Inn Ox Lounge at the Carlo IV, The Dedica Anthology hotel

Explore the Beauty of Prague
The Czech capital may be best known for its Gothic architecture. But it is Prague’s rich history – the political, cultural and economic center of central Europe for centuries – combined with a blossoming food scene that makes it one of the most visited cities in all of Europe. Main attractions include the Prague Castle, the Charles Bridge, Old Town Square with the Prague astronomical clock, and the Jewish Quarter. Plus, Prague is known for its beer, with the city of Pilsen (famous for its Pilsner beer) located just 90 kilometers west of Prague.
