Extract from Frank Ready's article "ILTA>ON Is Still an 'Important Investment' for Vendors. Did It Pay Off?"
The ILTA>ON virtual conference has come and gone, leaving both vendors and the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) to assess how the event’s digital exhibit hall measured up to expectations. First impressions seem to indicate that both vendors and the organizations behind virtual legal conferences are still in the middle of a steep learning curve when it comes to maximizing the returns from virtual interactions.
ILTACON was originally scheduled to be held at Nashville’s Gaylord Opryland Hotel at the end of August. Shortly after the outbreak of COVID-19, ILTA considered pursuing some kind of a hybrid format to limit exposure, but the the decision was ultimately made to pursue the entirely virtual event that became ILTA>ON. Vendors were each allotted a page inside the event’s online “Solutions Center” where they could initiate video chats or run product demos with clients.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
