The Clio Cloud Conference will remain a virtual event for 2021, Clio said today.

Clio’s annual conference, which has become one of the most popular annual events in the U.S. focused on law practice and legal technology, will be held as a virtual event on Oct. 26-29, 2021, the company said.

The 2020 conference, the eighth annual Clio conference but the first to be presented virtually, drew more than 4,500 attendees from more than 46 countries.

Clio said it expects the 2021 conference to be even better attended.

My assessment of the 2020 conference was that “it didn’t suck.”

That was a play on a directive Clio cofounder and CEO Jack Newton gave his staff. “Every virtual conference I’ve attended has sucked,” he told them. “If we can’t make virtual ClioCon not suck, we won’t do it.”

My opinion, as I wrote right after it concluded, was that it had been the best virtual conference the legal industry had seen to date.

Clio is currently offering “super early bird” pricing on registrations. For passes purchased before April 1, the price of a pass is $49. This is less than the lowest price Clio charged in 2020.

Although details are not yet available on speakers and programs, Clio said attendees should expect inspiring keynote speakers, informative and engaging programs, entertainment and fitness programming, networking opportunities, and access to Clio’s product and support teams.

The conference will also feature the release of the 2021 Legal Trends Report and the annual presentation of the Reisman Awards for excellence in the legal profession.
