LawFest is the one event of the year legal professionals should attend to learn how to adapt and thrive in a changing market.

We continue to evolve the event, showing you the opportunities to innovate and embrace technology. Speakers will provide practical insights of how they are innovating, with – what they are doing, where they started + what comes next.

We’re just a few days away now and we want to make sure you get the most out of the day, so here are 5 things to do before or on the day of LawFest 2019:

1. Download the event app

We have a brand new LawFest App. This will be your ‘go to’ resource for everything at LawFest.

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 find out more about the exhibitors before and during the event.

You can download the LawFest App here for iPhone and Android.

2. Make a game plan

All of you that have been to LawFest know it is an action-packed day, so make sure you have a plan to ensure you get the most out of the day.

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.

Again, this can all be done in the LawFest App.

Arrive early. Registrations open at 7.30am, 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 8.30.

3. Bring a colleague

Some organisations send just one staff member to LawFest, whilst others bring a whole team. Often it is easier to get more from an event when you are not alone and have colleagues with you.

We want to make it easier for you to bring more people from your organisation. As you have already registered, if you did want to bring another colleague then contact us to add a colleague at a discounted rate.

4. Meet the exhibitors

Take the opportunity to meet with our exhibitors in our exhibition hall.

LawFest is the only event in New Zealand that provides this unique opportunity to see the products and services of leading technology providers. This year we have the largest ever gathering of tech providers at a NZ legal event.

As an added bonus, many will have great prizes and offers for you!

You can relax in our enhanced premium zone in the exhibition hall, which has plenty of space to take a breather from the action.

If you want to see the technology first hand, then do not miss our new Tech Demo stage next to the registration desk. The presentations during the breaks will showcase the latest and leading technology available.

5. Get social – interact and engage

Get involved or follow the event on Twitter or LinkedIn – just use, or look for the #LawFest2019 hashtag to join the fun.

Follow us on Twitter here or on Linkedin here. Even if you are not able to make the event, this can be a great way to experience part of LawFest.

The event is much more than just the great educational content. There are many opportunities to network through the day and to enjoy our hospitality at one of New Zealand’s most prestigious venues.

The event doesn’t just end at 5.30, make sure you stick around for our extended networking drinks. This is a great opportunity to network with colleagues, speakers and exhibitors, all in the premium zone of the exhibition hall.

Hopefully these tips will help you get even greater value from attending LawFest.

We look forward to seeing you on the 21st of March.
