2013 VANTAGE Conference Takes Over Miami Beach

Thomson Reuters Elite users benefit from global user group meeting

MIAMI, 9 July 2013 – Some 650 attendees representing over 230 law firms and professional services firms descended on Miami Beach the last week in June for this year’s Thomson Reuters Elite global user conference.

This conference – part of Thomson Reuters Elite’s worldwide VANTAGE series of events and learning opportunities – took place at the Fontainebleau Hotel in the heart of Miami Beach. Over the course of four days, participants were offered more than 130 bespoke education sessions across the full range of Thomson Reuters Elite solutions, including 3E, Enterprise, MatterSphere, Engage, eBillingHub, and Business Development.

Product experts and international guest speakers from organizations such as Mandiant, Acritas, IBM, IntApp, Wilson Legal Solutions, White & Case, Blank Rome, Allen & Overy, and Stanton Allen provided valuable professional insights. Attendees were also given a ‘sneak peek’ at the new Workspace beta platform, which will fully integrate a range of Thomson Reuters Elite solutions with other third-party products across desktop and mobile devices.

Among the highlights of this year’s conference included a special preview of Workspace’s mobile capabilities and virtual collaboration abilities, and thought leaders from top global firms spoke about industry trends and best practices during special panel discussions. In addition, special curricular tracks in legal project management and business development were available, and the week’s festivities culminated with a gala dinner and celebration on Thursday evening.

“Our VANTAGE events just keep getting bigger and better, and this year was certainly no exception,” said Cary Burch, president of Thomson Reuters Elite. “We are immensely proud to offer our customers the absolute gold standard when it comes to curricular and educational opportunities to help them make the most of their investment in our solutions.”

The annual EMEA VANTAGE event will take place in London from 19-20 September 2013 at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel.
