Fresh off the heels of the 2015 Legal Marketing Association Conference in San Diego, we join the ranks of those flocking to the 2015 ABA TECHSHOW® conference in Chicago.
The event is held at the Hilton Chicago from April 16-18, 2015. By our own count, the 2015 schedule indicates there will be nearly 60 sessions – LexisNexis is sponsoring the “Mobile” track being held on Friday.
Attendees should check the bags received at registration – there will be a game piece in it for a scavenger hunt (pictured above). Have some fun at the show and follow the clues for a chance to be entered to win a popular mobile tablet device.
Here are a few of the event we’ll be on the look out for:
1. Legal tech show social. There were roughly 1,500 tweets from the hashtag #ABATECHSHOW last year and it’s likely the same hashtag will be central to the online community this year as well. The organizers tweet from the Twitter handle @ABATECHSHOW and maintain a regularly updated blog about the conference.
2. “Meet the Authors at ABA TECHSHOW” Conference organizers have arranged events to meet authors of books published by the ABA Law Practice Division. We counted five different events over the course of two days and would note that Steven Best is scheduled for April 16th from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mr. Best is the author of “The Lawyers Guide PCLaw Software.” In addition to the ABA event, he will be on hand in the LexisNexis booth (#208) to sign a complimentary copy of his book for the first 100 people.
When: 4/17/15 | 2:00 to 2:30 p.m.
Author: Steven J. Best
Note: Mr. Best will autograph up to 100 copies of “The Lawyers Guide PCLaw Software.”
Why limit your choices? Your phone is Android, your tablet is an iPad, and your office computer is a Windows PC. So how do you keep them synched and working together? It’s entirely possible with a little planning and a sprinkle of know-how.
