The legal industry used to have a reputation for favoring paper files over electronic ones and being behind the times in terms of technology. However, that’s all changing as the industry’s most successful firms embrace cloud-based process automation and adapt to new data privacy and security expectations.
Legaltech, the largest and most important legal technology event of the year, will take place January 31 to February 2, 2017 at the New York Hilton Midtown. This is the best place to be to learn about what technology can do for your law practice, and many attendees will need conference rooms nearby to build off of the event’s momentum.
All About Legaltech NYC
Over 10,000 professionals will be attending this year’s Legaltech event with over 200 speakers, more than 10 tracks of education, and at least 300 exhibitors. Topics in focus this year will be tech-friendly alternatives to traditional legal service providers, automating common tasks by 2020, the role of millennials in the legal landscape, and data privacy concerns. Event sponsors include Consilio, DiscoverReady, Epiq, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and others.
Over the course of three days, the agenda will play heavily on the topics of eDiscovery, data risk management, new technological developments, and the future of the legal industry. The Emerging Technology Track will cover topics in greater detail, such as eDiscovery, email security, and how data analysis can be used to drive business. Meanwhile, Supersessions will touch on diversity programs, other aspects of data security, and how analytics can replace outdated spreadsheets. There’s also a wide range of exhibitors that will be present to introduce legal professionals to cutting-edge solutions and technology products that can help law firms improve their practice.
Event pricing ranges from $15 to $1,295 depending on how involved you want to be in the event, but keep in mind that early bird rates end on December 31. If you want to stay at the event venue, the New York Hilton Midtown, the standard discount rate for attendees is $330 excluding taxes and fees if you book by December 30.
Meeting Space, Conference Facilities, and Day Offices
Many legal professionals who have already registered for the Legaltech event have expressed interest in securing meeting and conference space nearby to collaborate with their own teams, as well as other firms and tech companies in the industry. NYC Office Suites is conveniently located in Midtown Manhattan, the same neighborhood where Legaltech will be taking place very soon.
We offer business centers and meeting rooms that are available by the hour, for full days, or even longer. This is a far more professional and accommodating option than cramming everyone into hotel rooms or meeting at a noisy restaurant. At NYC Office Suites, our administrative staff can help you compile your presentation materials, prepare conference rooms, make transportation arrangements, and even order meals. And since the whole purpose of this big event is technology, we’ll have our technology team onsite to equip your meeting space for conference calls, teleconferences, webinars, and whatever else you need to stay connected.
If your law firm is based in NYC or does business here from time to time, we have meeting and conference rooms for all your temporary space needs throughout the year as well. With locations in the Plaza District, Commerce Building, Graybar Building, and Midtown East, we can accommodate your firm for depositions, arbitration hearings, consultations, interviews, and firm events.
Meeting room pricing starts at $39 per hour as part of a package or $65 per hour on-demand. Legaltech is just around the corner, so give us a call, send us a message, or use the live chat feature on our website to reserve your meeting space for January 31 to February 2!
