Update: Litera has issued a statement confirming its withdrawal from attending the Las Vegas event. Details here.

Last Friday, I reported that a major exhibitor, iManage, facing mounting fears around the surge in the Delta variant of the coronavirus,  had decided to pull its staff from attending ILTACON, while continuing to support the conference virtually.

Now, it appears that another major vendor has pulled its staff. A customer of Litera has confirmed receiving an email from a Litera employee cancelling a meeting scheduled for Las Vegas because Litera had decided to pull out of  attending in person.

Another source has told me of speaking with another Litera customer, who had received a similar letter, and with a Litera employee, who confirmed the pull-out.

I have reached out to several executives at Litera seeking confirmation of this and further information, but I have not received a reply. I will update this post if I hear from them.

Meanwhile, I made the personal decision not to attend, for reasons that I wrote about earlier today.
