But, for those of you who feel lucky, NCSC is entering everyone who registers by April 15 into a drawing for a chance to win a free suite at the Red Rock Resort for the duration of e-Courts. The strength and relevance of e-Courts’ education program and its unsurpassed exhibit show are what draws attendees to e-Courts. That hasn’t changed. But e-Courts 2014 will have a new look and a refreshed conference format—including a dynamic keynote speaker, more opportunities to network, and more time to spend with exhibitors.
