And yet another new event rears its little pointy head

Can't get enough of visiting legal trade shows or – if you are a vendor – being asked to sponsor and/or exhibit at them? Well now there is another one to contend with and here is the promo blurb…

A national legal event featuring exhibitors and seminars from leading experts has been announced for this autumn. The event, NLTEX, will be held in Liverpool at the new BT Convention Centre on the 23rd of October. Visitors will have the opportunity to listen to inspirational speakers and meet business experts who work in the sector. Denise Harris, managing director of SK Events, the organisers behind NLTEX said: “This will be the biggest event of its kind in the UK. We are expecting hundreds of legal professionals to attend this exhibition and the seminars.”

Entry to the exhibition is free and exhibitors confirmed so far include Royal Bank Of Scotland, Mitchel Charlesworth, Audi, IDS and Wesleyan for Lawyers. Places on the seminars cost £35 per person and offer the opportunity to hear advice from leaders in the fields of criminal law, IT and communications. Legal professionals attending the seminars will also be able to gain a valuable five CPD points.

Guest speakers at the seminars include eminent English Barrister Michael Mansfield and international speaker Andy Bounds. Michael Mansfield has worked on some of the country’s most famous cases, representing Michael Barrymore at the Stuart Lubbock inquest, the Bloody Sunday families and Mohamed al-Fayed in the inquest into the deaths of his son Dodi al-Fayed and Diana, Princess of Wales. He will be speaking on a range of legal issues from the short comings of forensic science to the future of the international criminal court. Andy Bounds is the bestselling author of The Jelly Effect.  Andy’s expertise lies in helping businesses all over the world to communicate in ways that get results every time.  He will be lecturing on the easiest, quickest and most pleasant way to generate fees.
