I’m happy to share word that LexBlog will be providing media coverage of LegalTech New York 2012 from January 30 through February 1.

LegalTech, the leading technology conference each year, brings some tremendous talent to New York. Whether they be speakers, sponsors, bloggers, exhibitors, or attendees, I’ve always found there to be a wonderful exchange of ideas surrounding innovation in the law.

The ideas, enthusiasm, and collaboration only exist for a few days though and only for the people attending. By covering the conference LexBlog will expand LegalTech’s reach – both in the people we’re reaching and the time in which ideas and discussion emanating from LegalTech can continue.

With this partnership between ALM’s LegalTech and LexBlog, LegalTech will have a presence beyond the walls of the conference center through video interviews of presenters, exhibitors, attendees and sponsors.

LexBlog’s editorial team will be conducting the interviews and be running the videos on a featured channel on LXBN (The LexBlog Network). The videos will also be hosted at YouTube so they may be shared via social media, blogged about, and displayed by exhibitors and speakers on their own blogs and websites.

In addition, LexBlog will be curating independent conference coverage from bloggers and those tweeting from the conference.

If you’re a blogger looking to cover LegalTech, LegalTech has graciously offered to provide press credentials to bloggers so they can get in free of charge. Drop Alexis Burgess, Marketing Manager at ALM, an email or give her a call at 212-457-7905 to request a press pass. Let Colin O’Keefe, LexBlog’s Editorial Manager, know you’re blogging from LegalTech so you’re coverage may be curated into LXBN’s coverage.

Thanks to Colin O’Keefe and Kevin McKeown, LexBlog’s President, for working with Henry Dicker, ALM’s Vice President Events, and Alexis Burgess to put this partnership together.

You can look for advance coverage of LegalTech on LXBN and this blog come January.
