ILTA Conference= Excellence

Posted by Geoff Zodda, Managing Director at Glenmont Group

Coming back on the Amtrak Northeast train yesterday from the ILTA conference, I had time to think about the event as a whole.   I have to say that ILTA was one of the best conferences I’ve ever been to.  It was my first ILTA conference, and my expectations were for it to somewhat resemble the Legal Tech conference held yearly in NYC.  While I do enjoy Legal Tech, it has its pros and cons and ILTA certainly exceeded my expecations.

To start with, the location of the ILTA conference was very scenic, right on the Potomac, with a view of our nation’s capital across the way.  The number of subject matter experts speaking at the conference was impressive and diverse, coming from law firms, consultancies and corporations.  With so many different sessions on the agenda, it was tough to choose which ones to attend.  The panels were well thought out by the ILTA conference committee, with informative individuals across the board, each bringing different perspectives and nuances to the table.

Also, the environment of the conference was very cordial, friendly and more casual than I expected, which I consider to be a great thing.  Everyone, from the top CIO’s to best-selling authors to the ILTA Executive Board members, was approachable and genuinely happy to speak with others.  Since ILTA is a peer to peer group, the feel and atmosphere matched up in that manner.

It should not be surprising that another strength of the conference was the technology which made it so user friendly.  Between the iPhone & iPad application with all the information available on speakers, locations of events, etc, plus the technology available in the conference rooms, ILTA was filled with what you’d expect – a high level of technology.

Next year’s conference is being held in Vegas (that alone will draw me there), and seeing how things were run this year, and being anxious to see how they can “one up” this year’s conference, I already have my bags packed!
