Join us in Seattle for our 52nd Annual Meeting

The ACLEA Annual Meeting is an intimate and exciting way to make long-lasting relationships that exponentially expand your business, with approximately 250 CLE professionals attending each year.


With members hailing from the U.S., Canada, and abroad, the continuing legal education professionals who attend this meeting include programming planners, editors, publication staff, executive directors, and other key decision makers from various state and provincial bars, national bars, local and specialty bars, and independent CLE companies. ACLEA attendees are loyal; over half have been to at least four ACLEA conferences and continue to come back!


The exhibit hall will be located in a vibrant, high traffic area with both breakfast and break stations available. The Saturday Welcome Reception will take place in the exhibit area with food, cocktails, and a relaxed atmosphere to encourage opportunities to engage with attendees. Exhibitors get more than six hours of time during the conference to connect and collaborate with future customers!
