Does your law firm struggle to keep up with current innovative trends in the industry? Do you want to educate your employees on new legal practices in a fast-paced environment? Would you value the opportunity to network with peers across the country? If so, attending trade shows can be a worthy investment to both your firm and your employees’ growth.
One of the first benefits of attending trade shows is the ability to visit and speak with vendors in person. Having face to face time with exhibitors can be much more efficient than doing business over the phone or through e-mail, because vendors are readily available to discuss your needs and provide on-site demos of their products. Many trade shows focus specifically on one area your firm needs more knowledge on, such as technology or media. For example, the ABA TECHSHOW includes exhibitors offering the latest and greatest in legal technology products.
