LoopUp kicked-off 2019 by taking part in a mix of exciting events across the globe. From the UK to Australia and North America to The Netherlands, the LoopUp team were on hand to showcase our premium remote meetings solution and discuss everything from conference call security to the future of collaboration.
As well as meeting delegates, taking part in seminars and exhibiting, the LoopUp team took away two key overarching themes from the events:
1) When it comes to implementing new digital technologies in a workplace, employee adoption remains the biggest barrier.
2) There is a growing threat around unsecure devices in an increasingly integrated working environment.
In case you missed us at any of the events this year…we thought we would share some of our highlights!
12th Managing Partners’ Forum – Queensland, Australia, 22nd-23rd February 2019
The 12th Managing Partners’ Forum was the first of many events for LoopUp down-under this year, and it was our first time attending this Chilli IQ event. Discussions focussed on the changing world of technology and its future impact on the efficiency, processes and communication of the legal sector.
Professionals across the Australian legal industry came together for this two-day conference to discuss the trends shaping the future of the digital workplace. We heard from speakers from Harvard Law School, Microsoft and Deloitte, addressing some of the biggest challenges in the Australian legal sector and looking to the future of legal service. LoopUp were proud sponsors of the event and our Australian team was exhibiting at the show. We enjoyed a lot of interesting conversations around the evolution and adoption of communication tools and the shifting tides of collaboration in the modern workplace.
British Legal Technology Forum – London, UK, 12th March 2019
This was LoopUp’s third time attending the British Legal Technology Forum, organised by NetLaw Media. This year, the London-based event generated more buzz than ever before, with attendees stopping-by for a G&T at the LoopUp sponsored Gin Bar.
The anticipated event brought together over 1,200 of the most respected professionals from world of law, legal technology and IT security to examine and explore the systems, strategies, processes and platforms that will drive law firms and legal businesses into the next decade and beyond.
With four presentation stages and over 2,500 square metres of exhibition space, The British Legal Technology Forum hosted multi-stream conference sessions, keynote presentations, panel discussions, knowledge sessions, interviews, interactive demonstrations and exhibitions by over 100 of Europe’s best-known technology and IT security suppliers.
The theme for this year was ‘Technology and Security’ with a particular focus on the burgeoning legal tech start-up scene. The opening chair Professor Richard Susskind, explained that this market expansion was driven by the increased availability of private equity finance, coupled by the growing awareness of legal tech by in-house lawyers. Of all the issues discussed, arguably the hottest BLTF topics were cybersecurity, AI and blockchain.
As a Bronze Sponsor of the event, LoopUp were exhibiting at the show and hosting the Gin Bar throughout the day.
Enterprise Connect – Orlando, Florida, 18th-21st March 2019
We enjoyed a busy few days exhibiting at Enterprise Connect, in Orlando last month. This was our third time attending the 4-day expert-led conference, which focusses on the latest systems, software, services and applications for enterprise communications and collaboration.
For more than 28 years, Enterprise Connect has been the leading conference and exhibition for enterprise communications and collaboration in North America. Enterprise Connect, organised by UBM Technology Group, brings corporate IT decision makers together with the industry’s vendors, analysts and consultants to focus on the issues central to enterprise communications and collaboration.
Enterprise Connect adopts a vendor neutral conference program, comprising of over 60 sessions and featuring speakers from Walmart, Amazon and Google. The main theme this year was ‘Empowering Your Organisation Though Collaboration,’ with the majority of presentations looking at how enterprises can take a more holistic view of communications.
A particular highlight for us was participating in the Enterprise Connect Booth Crawl. It gave us the opportunity to showcase LoopUp’s intuitive conference calling solution to senior decision makers across a variety of industries. The LoopUp team held product demos at our booth, showing visitors how to join meetings, add guests, and screenshare with a single click.
