ITechLaw's popular conferences feature discussions on current legal
topics of interational importance, presented by top lawyers and leading
speakers in the field of technology law. The two days of educational
programming in Washington will include sessions on protecting
information in the cloud, managing data privacy, intellectual property
in social media, outsourcing, cyber security and e-commerce issues,
among others. The program format is varied: in addition to speaker-led
presentations, there are interactive workshops, panel discussions and
roundtable breakout sessions.
"Last year's conference, commemorating ITechLaw's 40th anniversary, had
a record number of attendees. With this year's exceptional speaker
roster, combined with the event's superb location, we expect to continue
the momentum," said Alexander Blumrosen of Bernard-Hertz-Béjot in Paris,
president of ITechLaw. "Washington is the center of government activity
in the United States and the hub of legislative, regulatory and lobbying
activity for every part of the technology industry, as well as being the
original location for the ITechLaw Annual Meeting. I invite everyone to
join us in this celebratory return to the nation's capital."
The World Technology Law Conference and Annual Meeting will offer
attendees a variety of networking opportunities and social gatherings,
with a welcome reception on Wednesday, May 2 and an optional black-tie
event on Thursday evening at the United
States Institute of Peace. Beyond the strong educational content
offered, part of the value of this conference is the opportunity to meet
the diverse attendees and speakers who represent a wide cross-section of
the technology law sector.
The event is being held at the Ritz-Carlton,
Washington D.C. A limited number of event sponsorships is still
available: information on opportunities to reach this select and
