AALL 2023 Annual Meeting & Conference Recap

5 MIN READ

As the attendees flooded in for the Opening Reception to the AALL 2023 Conference, our Hein reps could feel the excitement in the air. While last year’s conference was in person, attendance was still a bit low. This year the floor came alive with the hum of conversations and laughter. Handshakes were exchanged, warm hugs were shared, and as always, the conference proved to be a platform for collective growth. Hearing the stories of our customers, witnessing the impact of our products firsthand, and feeling the unity of the community invigorated our commitment to excellence. Here’s a brief recap of everything we covered this year at our booth.

Booth Fun

This year we had so much room for activities. From scavenger hunts, to prize wheels, to selfies with Steve, there wasn’t a dull moment.

Scavenger Hunt: Thanks to our friends at the American Bar Association, Cassidy Cataloguing, Courtroom Insight, Edward Elgar Publishing, and PowerNotes, we were able to host a scavenger hunt. Attendees were provided a hint that directed them to a specific vendor’s booth where they received a stamp. At the end of the conference, we drew one lucky winner, Jaime Klausner, who received a $600 Visa gift card. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Prize Wheel: This year we had a prize wheel. If you attended a demo, you were eligible to spin our prize wheel, which included up to $1,000 in airline vouchers, limited-time HeinOnline mugs, Hein blue guys, magnetic bookmarks, and selfies with Steve (everyone’s favorite sales rep).

In case you missed out on all the fun, check out some pictures that were snapped.
