The Legal Marketing Association Southeast Conference 2017

Charlotte, the third-fastest growing major city in the United States, is the perfect host for this year’s annual conference. In 2013, Forbes named Charlotte among its list of Best Places for Business and Careers, and the city now has nine Fortune 500 companies in its metropolitan area. Charlotte’s Center City, the convention district, is a walkable and compact area boasting more than 100 restaurants plus cultural venues, museums and a vibrant nightlife scene.

In a city that embraces a culture of rapid growth, we will focus on the future of the legal industry and how leveraging tools and resources will help us navigate our own ever-changing landscape.
