Lucky for some: LSN's 13th London Networking Event gets record attendance
Last night saw LSN's most successful London Networking Event ever, with 359 attendees representing 103 law firms and 47 other businesses. Held at the Anthologist bar on Gresham Street in the City of London (we even put it on foursquare), this was LSN's 13th event since we started our networking events for business services people in law firms back in 2006. Almost better than the overall totals - a record number and up 15% on our previous high of 311 in November 2010 - was the number of new people we hosted: 34% of people attending had never been to an LSN event before. We love new people, so it was a pleasure to have them.
Also present was the fantastic new BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, aptly demonstrated by Dan Sloshberg (pictured, right) and two other RIM staffers to a select group of legal IT and finance people in a sneak preview half an hour before the event started. This London Networking Event was supported by networkpartners BlackBerry, rekoop, Ambition, Omtool, Elite, LexisNexis, FWBS, Pilgrim, Aderant, and SRC. Were you lucky enough to make it along?

The winning prize draw ticket number was... 0123 (yes, really).
