A week away from the first hybrid version of ILTACON, the annual convention of the International Legal Technology Association, and with mounting fears around the surge in the Delta variant of the virus, a major vendor, iManage, has informed its customers that it will not send staff to the conference in Las Vegas.

“We let ILTA attendees know last night that due to the current travel ban in place for all iManage employees, we will not be sending in-person staff to ILTACON 2021,” iManage spokesperson Anastasia Bullinger told me by email. “However, we remain committed to the event and are supporting it virtually.”

Bullinger said that iManage has “a robust lineup of programming” which includes five presentation sessions, sponsorship of the event app, livestreaming, and virtual meetings with attendees that can take place from our booth.

“We’re looking forward to a terrific ILTACON, supporting ILTA, our customers, and the broader, legal technology community,” she said.
