Registration is now open for the NABT 2017 Annual Convention in New Orleans – September 13-17!

Join BMS and fellow Chapter 7 colleagues from around the country for the NABT 2017 Annual Conference in festive and diverse New Orleans!

As a Platinum Sponsor for this event, we highly recommend clients attend to enrich your practice with valuable tools and strategies, get updates from notable practitioners, and network with other Chapter 7 professionals from across the nation.

In three days jam-packed with educational sessions, networking events, and more: 

  1. Learn how to navigate complex cases in the modern bankruptcy landscape with top trends, recent cases, and updates that impact your practice.
  2. Hear from notable speakers including EOUST leadership, US Bankruptcy Court judges, and other industry thought leaders.
  3. Attend fabulous events from BMS and the NABT in festive New Orleans – including the NABT 35th Anniversary Celebration at the legendary House of Blues with dinner, dancing and drinks!

Trustees, here are a few session highlights you can look forward to:

  • Litigation Funding: After a case that took the bankruptcy world by storm in March, litigation funding from third parties is a hot new trend. Learn how you can utilize this strategy in your toolkit.
  • Risks of Operating a Business in Chapter 7 and 11: Explore the risks and benefits of operating a business in Chapter 7 and 11, and strategies you can pursue to manage those risks and maximize benefits to creditors.
  • Receiverships and ABC’s: Explore the structure and rules governing these two useful non-bankruptcy alternatives to resolving distressed situations for companies.
  • ABI Commission on Consumer Bankruptcy: Join the discussion and help enact bankruptcy reform on Friday, September 15 at an open public forum for the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) Commission on Consumer Bankruptcy.

Trustee Assistants and Paralegals, there are special sessions just for you.

Tame your workload and help yourself stay sane by attending an entirely new set of practical sessions tailored for those who support trustees:

Book your hotel room & flights

The NABT convention will be held at the legendary New Orleans Marriott, conveniently located in the heart of the city on Canal St. at the entrance to the famous French Quarter. This downtown hotel is steps away from world-class venues offering authentic music, dining, entertainment and excitement for your entire trip.

Convention attendees may book rooms at the discounted rate of $159/night; however, you must be a registered attendee in order to reserve your hotel room through the NABT. Act now, the NABT room block always sells out!

Attendees also have access to flight discounts through United and Delta airlines. Access airline discount codes in the conference brochure.
