ALPMA Legal Management Summit & Trade Exhibition

2018 ALPMA Summit 

Held 19 - 21 September  2018 |  ICC, Sydney

The 2018 ALPMA Summit was an inspiring three days of thought leadership consisting of seminars, workshops and networking that pivoted around the central topic of the “Firm of the Future”. A broad range of high profile speakers (see the Summit website for a full breakdown of topics and speakers) shared their insights not only into what is happening in the legal space right now, but also what they believed the disruptors would be in the coming 5-10 years and most importantly how to plan for these changes now. The program not only challenged delegates to think about how to achieve healthy profit margins for their firms today, but to think outside the box and start planning for healthy profit margins in the future. It is fair to say that this planning needs to commence today (as there is much to consider & plan for) in order for Firms to remain relevant well into the future.

The ALPMA team would like to thank our fabulous speakers, delegates and partners for their continued support of our annual Summit program.
