LTNY 2009: Early Reports Say Show Is Packed, in Spite of Economy

The first day of LegalTech New York is typically the most hectic, as vendors scramble to finish setting up their booths in the exhibition halls, visitors wait in line to check in and get their badges and the conference tracks see a large, early turnout. But what happens when a major law firm conference falls in the middle of the biggest wave of lawyer layoffs in recent history? Still pretty crowded, by most early accounts from the Twitterati:

"LTNY does not seem any smaller or less busy this year. Good sign for the legal market?" -- David Carns, Crowell & Moring

"If economy is down, u wouldn't know it. Crazy busy here at Legaltech NY!" -- Rick Borstein, Adobe Systems, Inc.

"Exhibitor floor is HOPPING!!!" -- Rocket Matter, LLC

"LegalTech is like a casino -- I can't find the exit." -- Doug Bernstein

You can follow the steady stream of tweets from LegalTech speakers, vendors and attendees at LexTweet, or by searching for the hash tag #LTNY on Twitter. For show-goers looking to get a little guidance on the whole Twitter phenomenon, the panel "What Is Twitter and How Can I Use It?," moderated by Law Technology News editor-in-chief Monica Bay, takes place today at 3pm in the West Grand Ballroom.
