Minneapolis, MN – May 16, 2017 – Edge Legal Marketing announced today that the new and improved virtual press room, The Edge Room, is open for Legalweek West. Beginning today, exhibitors and sponsors may upload their company logo and information, post recent press releases, announcements, articles, white papers, images, social profiles and other marketing materials they wish to share with one another and media representatives in advance of events.

This service affords media representatives the opportunity to plan on-site briefings and easily cover breaking news. The Edge Room can be found at www.theedgeroom.com.

With The Edge Room, Edge Legal Marketing embarked on an overhaul of the system and Legalweek West will be the first event to use the new and improved website. Some highlights that people can look forward to include:

  • Easy social sharing to The Edge Room’s LinkedIn and Twitter pages
  • Automated event hashtagging for Twitter
  • Easy access to The Edge Room Blog, which is integrated into www.TheEdgeRoom.com versus a separate site
  • Advanced image uploading, including bulk uploads
  • Ability for The Edge Room to host multiple events simultaneously

Legalweek West will be held June 12-13, 2017, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square. Within Legalweek West you will find event-within-an-event such as Legaltech, the cornerstone of Legalweek, LegalExecutive, LegalOps, LegalSmallFirm and LegalDiversityForum.

Originally launched in 2007, The Edge Room is a modern version of the traditional trade show press room. ALM is a partner with Edge Legal Marketing, offering this convenient service to conference exhibitors and qualified members of the media.

Edge Legal Marketing grants login credentials to qualified members of its proprietary legal and mainstream media database, providing exclusive access to preview exhibitor announcements and company information.

The Edge Room also includes additional exposure for exhibitors via its social media outlets on Twitter (#legalweek17, @Legalweekshow) and LinkedIn, or individuals and companies can follow Legalweek West via Twitter. Press releases can be automatically posted on The Edge Room blog, which is configured to help companies boost their social media presence and search engine optimization (SEO).

“We have marked an upward trend in use of The Edge Room over the years and as the usage continues to increase, we will continue to invest in the platform,” says Amy Juers, founder and CEO, Edge Legal Marketing. “Because of the type of work we do every day, we know traditional paper press rooms have gone to the wayside. Marketers work hard on creating compelling content for editors and reporters and it is important to us that this information gets exchanged appropriately. The Edge Room fills that gap and will carry on to successfully give show exhibitors and media a connection that benefits all.”
