Legalweek 2022 Recap
Legalweek 2022 had a feeling of energy, excitement, and enthusiasm greater than any Legalweek (or Legal Tech) in years. Innovation abounded, AI was at every corner…and Reveal was everywhere with its rollout of the much-anticipated Reveal 11.
Reveal threw the blowout party of the conference, an elegant gala event at the Rainbow Room attended by over 700 guests – and they were the lucky ones, yet others had to be turned away.
Reveal was the conference’s title sponsor, and Reveal’s logo was ubiquitous, seen on the seat cover of every chair in the main ballroom as well as on banners circumnavigating the ballroom’s balcony; conference registration booths; large wall displays; even the floor. Reveal videos ran before the beginning of each keynote session. At the Legalweek awards dinner, guests entered the room to a sea of Reveal balloons.
Reveal’s presence went far beyond its logo. Folks from Reveal could hardly have been more active and more visible. Reveal’s booth was the busiest of the conference, with a robust crowd regularly gathered round to see one of the more than 200 Reveal 11 demos booked for event. Cat Casey and George Socha introduced the conference keynote sessions, its awards dinner, and several of the awards and between them conducted more than 15 live podcast interviews of a wide array of guests from corporations, law firms, academia, and more.
Reveal was busy on the educational front as well, with six educational panels and three LITE Stage presentations:
