Besides sessions that will get lawyers and firm managers up to speed on the latest legal technology issues and resources, a tech conference is the time to check out products first hand.
If you’re a conference veteran, you’ll leave room in your suitcase for the freebies that product vendors hand out (or that you can win) on the ABA Techshow EXPO floor.
We took a walk through the 2014 vendor floor and had our attention drawn to a few highlights. Check out the gallery for our favorite freebies from ABA Techshow 2014.
Unsurprisingly, many had some sort of tech function. If you forgot to pack a power cord, you were in luck, because several booths were giving away USB chargers. Others were simply for fun, like light-up yo-yos and snowglobe pens. And if you were feeling peckish, there were plenty of booths which were happy to keep your blood sugar up with candy and cookies.
The Techshow will continue through Saturday, but the EXPO will only be open through 3 p.m. CST today. So if you see something you like, get down there now!
Freebie: At the ABA Techshow help desk, guests could hydrate with water or sodas and freshen their breath in time for networking. But the best of the giveaways from LTRC was a portable mobile device charger for when you’re down to your last bit of juice but still need to tweet the rest of your session.
The Pitch: “The Legal Technology Resource Center (LTRC) is an ABA member benefit provided by the Law Practice Division. Through blog posts, publications, training videos, webinars and other free resources, we help lawyers overcome obstacles, identify opportunities, and choose the technology that will improve their practices.”
