Bristol+Bath LegalTech network is a collaboration of law firms, legal tech companies and educationalists with a mutual interest in legal technology and innovation. They wanted to launch an annual festival of events highlighting the legal tech sector within the region. This would kick-off with a one-day conference and they approached ZiaBia for support pre event and on site to ensure this was a success.

Event format

A one-day pay-to-attend event for people working in the law sector – either from a law firm or a supporting organisation. The event comprised two keynote speakers, panel sessions and innovation showcases. There was also an exhibition and catering area. The day concluded with a sponsored drinks reception.

ZiaBia role

Initially ZiaBia were approached to consult on festival ideas and bringing the conference to reality. The next steps were to support securing a venue and advising on how to make the event financially viable. Once the venue was booked, we were engaged to manage the logistical elements. ZiaBia were also appointed to offer their expertise and guidance on putting together and selling exhibitor and sponsorship packages. ZiaBia were the lead agency and managed all communications with the venue, production company, sponsors/exhibitors and speakers. Also responsible for the budget management of the event and to keep track of income and expenditure.

Future collaboration

The aim of this year’s event was to consolidate BBLT’s place within the sector’s event calendar. There are already plans for a 2025 festival and conference, to which ZiaBia are already in conversation about partnering on and other events throughout the year.
