How to get the most out of LawFest

LawFest is the one event of the year legal professionals should attend to discover how technology and innovation can impact them, their firms and their clients.

We’re just a few days away now  and we want to make sure you get the most of the day, so here are 5 things to do before or on the day of LawFest 2018: 

 

  1. Download the event app

We have an event app again this year. You’ll be able to check out the delegates and speakers, set your session schedule for the day, have your say in the event feed, and get involved in the exhibitor passport competition.

You can download the App here for iPhone, or here for Android. Search for LawFest 2018 and log in using the email you used to register for LawFest.

 

  1. Make a game plan

LawFest has something for everyone. From those new to technology, to those currently at the forefront of legal innovation, and everyone in-between.  

It’s important to have a plan of what you want to get out of the event. Check out the speakers and their sessions so you know which ones are important to you. Prepare any questions you may want to ask, or make a list of what you want to learn. 

Make sure you arrive early. Registrations open at 8am, which is the same time the exhibition hall opens. This provides a good opportunity to meet some of the exhibitors prior to the start of the formal proceedings at 8.45.

 

  1. Bring a colleague

Attending events alone can be daunting, so bring a colleague using one of our great add-on ticket options. Under 30 Pass, which allows those under 30 to attend LawFest for  just $199. You can Register Now.

 

  1. Meet the exhibitors

Take the opportunity to meet with our exhibitors in our expanded exhibition hall, which includes a new Premium Zone, a more spacious and comfortable design for delegates to connect with providers to see and hear about their leading solutions. 

Make sure you visit the Innovation Zone – also new to LawFest for 2018. The Innovation Zone is an area for you to find the latest start-ups in the legaltech sector. LawFest is the only event in New Zealand that provides this unique opportunity to see the products and services of leading technology providers. 

Use the App and our website to find out more about our exhibitors. 

Take full advantage of our ‘Meet the Exhibitors’ session, prior to the morning tea break. Premium exhibitors have 60 seconds to explain who they are, what they do and where they are for you to visit them. This is a great opportunity to identify who is most applicable to you, so you can make a point of speaking to those exhibitors at some point during the day.
