Opportunities for Vendor Involvement
Please contact Ken Hansen with questions or if you need more information on items on this page.
Update Your Expertise!
We are always looking for ILTA members and vendors who are experts in specific areas of focus to speak at ILTA's annual conference, a seminar or webinar, a regional meeting, or to author an article for our award-winning publications. If you are interested in sharing your knowledge, please enter your credentials in our Expertise Database (it will only take a moment and the benefits to ILTA members are immeasurable).
Visit your profile page on ILTA's Connected Community and set your Knowledge Areas and Expertise. Please indicate the knowledge areas in which you are MOST well-versed (up to 5), and click Save. Please provide a brief biography that we can use for you as well. Note: If you do not have login credentials for the ILTA website, you’ll find the option to create an account on the login screen.
Speak at Meetings, Webinars and Conferences
Our sponsors are invited to submit courses for consideration for presentation at local meetings, seminars, webinars, and our annual conference. Courses can be educational in nature, demo product solutions or both, and they should be held to 60 minutes in duration. Once you submit a course, it will be reviewed by ILTA's Programming Coordinator. Based on feedback from members, we will work closely with the peer groups and regional member liaisons (RMLs) to schedule webinars and local meetings. You will be contacted directly if your course is selected.
To be considered as a speaker for a local meeting, webinar presentation or future conferences, submit courses via our course catalog. Submitted courses will remain in the course catalog for one year.
An ILTA roadshow is an educational presentation that is delivered to our members in multiple cities. View general information regarding the workflow of a roadshow.
Our sponsors are invited to submit proposals for potential roadshow presentations. The proposal will be reviewed by our programming coordinator and peer groups for consideration. Someone will contact you directly to further discuss your submission. The administrative fee for each proposal is $500, which includes the first five (5) cities. Additional cities can be added in blocks of five (5) for $250 per block.
UPDATE - December 2014: Our schedule for 2015 is filled for most of our major cities, such as New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Washington, DC. Due to the high volume of roadshow in progress, we are currently only taking submissions for roadshow proposals for smaller cities. Please contact Gail Persichilli if you are interested in more information on cities available for additional roadshows in 2015.
Vendor Product Briefings
Vendor product briefings are a series of webinars hosted by vendors to demo their products to ILTA members. These webinars are posted on our website and announced via a monthly broadcast to members. These product briefings are scheduled throughout the year on Mondays and Fridays at noon Eastern. The cost is $250.
Emerging Technologies Webinar Series
ILTA's Emerging Technologies Peer Group is looking for vendors to present on cool and new solutions for which we expect to see growth within the legal industry in the coming years. Said solutions could be hardware, software, methodologies, business practices or philosophies. Candidate solutions do not need to be "emerging" in their entirety; a proposed solution might qualify by virtue of newness to the legal industry, specifically, or a small technical change to an existing solution that inspires significant changes in usage and adoption, etc. Accordingly, the application process includes the question: "What qualifies the proposed solution as 'Emerging'?"
The application process is similar to the process in which vendors apply for slots in the "Solution Spotlight" sessions at our annual conference. The application is posted here. Selected topics and presenters will enjoy approval and endorsement by the Emerging Technologies Peer Group as "emerging" and sponsored as such. While there is no fee for this opportunity, selected vendors will be asked to host their own webinar.
ILTA's Security Initiative: LegalSEC®
Firms of all demographics have come together under the ILTA banner to form LegalSEC®, The Legal Information Security Council. The goal of this initiative is to deliver a set of best practices and a framework that firms can adapt to their needs to build or enhance their information assurance/security programs. Our mission is to enhance the delivery of secure services to clients by raising and maintaining security awareness and by providing an asset protection framework for law firms.
We are looking to our vendor sponsors for educational content and product information around security awareness to our members. We have created a database for you to input your ideas. The LegalSEC Advisory Group will review the entries to select topics for the LegalSEC monthly webinar series. The fee is $250, and your company will produce the webinar and handle the registration.
Peer Group Educational Webinar Sponsorship
Webinar sponsorships are a great way to target your products/services to a specific audience. The benefits of sponsorship include: listed as sponsor on webinar invite to all peer group members; logo on meeting webpage; logo on cover slide that is on screen before the beginning of the webinar; your logo on "Q&A" slide at end of presentation; and webinar moderator acknowledgement at the beginning and end of the webinar. The cost for sponsorship is $250.
Online and Print Advertising
Whether you want to advertise online or in print, we have opportunities available. Contact Kristy Cole at 512.795.4675 for more information or to schedule a time to go over ALL of your advertising options (and discounts associated with your sponsorship level).
