Tim Sanders got rave reviews from attendees yesterday, with folks saying they left with lots of useful information and ideas. We hope you left with a little inspiration, too.

Despite the fact that we were in one of the largest rooms in the hotel,  it was standing room only for this morning event. In fact, quite a few of the session rooms were standing room only. We’re always happy to squeeze in more session participants! Please make sure to be courteous and discrete when entering and leaving the room.

Learn from international panelists on Executive Track

It’s not every day that you, as a CIO, Technology Director or other legal IT executive gets the chance to swap war stories, hear what worked/what didn’t and see how other firms are leveraging their technology in an ever expanding international market, with your peers.

This year, join our international group of ILTA member panelists from the U.K., Australia, Canada and the U.S. as well as several ILTA conference vendor sponsors do just that.

The Executive track at this year’s conference offers a broad choice of sessions:

• CIO Roundtable: Challenges in Demonstrating IT Payoff
• Marketing IT as a Service
• The Law Office in 3-5 Years
• Managing Change Due to Mergers & Acquisitions
• Expanding into Foreign Markets
• Managing Expectations in Firm IT Strategy
• Growing from Manager to Leader
• Recap of Web 2.0 discussion covered at the G100 CIO Event

Bring your questions and your experience from the trenches and dig in for some lively sharing of ideas with your fellow ILTA IT executives.

Welcome to the ILTA Conference Blog!

The purpose of this conference blog is to help attendees connect with other attendees on site, and to help non-attendees make those connections virtually. Here are some of the ways we’re going to do that:

Before the conference:
1. You’ll see posts from speakers and attendees before the event where they’ll discuss what they’ll be talking about, what sessions they will attend and whom they hope to see.

2. We’ll link to the main conference site for reminders about the program.

3. We’ll post some helpful articles with advice on how to make the most of your conference attendance.

4. We’ll offer a place for attendees to share their plans and possible pre-meet other attendees so you’ll know a colleague or two when you get there.

During the conference:
1. We’ll post highlights from the day’s sessions and events and invite attendees to share their highlights through post comments.

2. We’ll post photos and video interviews to the blog, and take your comments and suggestions for more.

3. We’ll keep you updated on changes and can’t-miss events.

Most importantly, we invite you to use this space to comment, share, give advice and hook-up with your fellow ILTAns.
