Last week, we joined over 400 ediscovery professionals at the ACEDS Conference in National Harbor, Maryland. Many attendees got the chance to stop by our booth to #DiscoverWow and learn what makes DISCO the discovery solution lawyers love.
The conference officially kicked off early Tuesday morning, with an agenda packed full of insightful sessions and keynotes from expert judges, attorneys, and other subject matter experts across the industry, including a panel session featuring Kent Radford, one of DISCO's founding partners.
In the panel, which focused on reducing corporate litigation risks and costs, Kent offered practical tips on how to economically choose the right ediscovery vendor, how to maneuver through the foreign language of accounting, and other practical tips on curbing large spending that attendees could implement immediately. Other panelist shared their experiences about how smart spending can grow a company. The room was packed with an audience of eager listeners with questions about how to shape company culture to reduce costs.
DISCO took the conference slogan, "Unlock Your Brain", to heart while demoing our ediscovery software, asking people that stopped by “Why continue using technology that’s slow and difficult to use when there is something quicker, easier to use, and cheaper on the market?” Without fail, every time we showed DISCO to attendees and gave them the opportunity to test drive it themselves, the same word was uttered -- “Wow!”
At DISCO, we're also about having fun. Leading up to and throughout the conference, we held concurrent contests on social media, giving away Apple Watches to two lucky conference attendees who joined the fun on Twitter and Instagram. DISCO also sponsored the Tuesday evening networking reception, featuring a special cocktail called "The Thought Shot" -- a bourbon beverage infused with maple extract, a dash of orange bitters, and topped with candied bacon.
We had a great time at the ACEDS conference and are looking forward to next year’s show!
