0 Comment

We had a fantastic time at the NABT 2015 Annual Convention in Chicago, IL on August 27 – 29 meeting with Chapter 7 professionals from all over the country and letting them know about the BMS Advantage. We hope that everyone that attended the conference and our events had a wonderful time as well!

BMS Booth

We were a platinum sponsor and exhibitor at the convention, and we had a great time meeting with conference attendees throughout the conference! Our booth featured a showcase of the newest releases of our comprehensive case administration software platforms, as well as a special demo room where attendees were able to see first-hand the latest generation of our leading cloud-based bankruptcy case administration platform, CaseLink Web 5.0!

CaseLink Web Selfie Scavenger Hunt

With the upcoming release of the fifth generation of our cloud-based case administration software, we held a CaseLink Web Selfie Scavenger Hunt throughout the week – asking conference attendees to take five selfies with CaseLink Web signs posted throughout the conference – and what a turnout! Attendees tagged their photos with the #CLWSelfie hashtag, and were given a special BMS photo frame as a prize. Attendees that took photos with BMS Team Members were entered into a raffle to win a $50 Amazon gift card, and attendee Ashley Nelson from Baton Rouge, LA was awarded the prize. Congratulations, Ashley!

Pre-Conference Dinner & Fireworks Cruise

We had a wonderful evening aboard the Mystic Blue on Wednesday night cruising along the coast of Chicago’s iconic Navy Pier with panoramic views of downtown landmarks! We enjoyed a gourmet dinner, cocktails, and a spectacular fireworks display at the end of the evening. Thank you to all of the trustees and conference attendees that came out (and a very special thank you to our clients)!

Second City Performance

On Thursday night directly following the NABT’s Welcome Reception, we enjoyed an exclusive private performance from the world-renowned improvisational comedy theatre, the Second City, at Chicago’s historic Steppenwolf Theatre. From the incredible theatre to the uproarious comedy provided by the troupe, it was a night of laughs that we won’t soon forget!

BMS University

Continuing our BMS University Tour, we hosted the BMS University Breakout Session on Friday morning in the Exchange Room of the InterContinental. Attendees were quizzed on their T-Codes in a trivia segment called “T-Code Time Bomb,” and they also learned case administration tips and tricks from software experts. Additionally, attendees were given a special sneak peek at some of the latest features coming up from BMS! Congratulations to Carol Walsh from Soquel, CA for winning the T-Code Time Bomb game!

Shedd Dine & Stroll

As a “thank you” to our clients, BMS hosted a spectacular evening at the Shedd Aquarium, the largest indoor aquarium in the world. Guests enjoyed a delicious dinner featuring cuisines from all of the diverse neighborhoods of Chicago – from Little Italy to Greek Town – and explored the aquarium’s world-renowned exhibits featuring over 8,000 aquatic animals. At the end of the evening, guests were given a special show from a diver feeding the underwater community in the breathtaking Caribbean Reef exhibit!
