Moderators are responsible for coordinating with your session participants well in advance of the Conference and agree to update your profile within the requested deadlines.
You may introduce each presenter or you may have them introduce themselves. Either way, you will be provided their bios in advance. We recommend you request each of your session participants email you two to three questions that can serve as a warm-up for the Q&A discussion with the audience as needed.
Presenters are responsible for updating your profile info and description within the requested deadlines (see below). Presentations are to be educational and informational and not delivering a sales or commercial pitch. We recommend you email two to three questions to your moderator you want asked (these questions may serve as a warm-up for the Q&A discussion with the audience). The moderator will begin the moderated discussion with a few questions and then take Q&A from the audience.
Audio and Video
A Power Point Projector, laptop and laser pointer are provided in each session room. Internet is not provided, unless requested well in advance. If you need an Apple computer adapter for any reason, please let us know in advance. No other equipment is provided unless requested in advance. Please advise immediately if you require additional audio visual.
Format and Length
Session Format & Presentation Length
General guidance for most traditional style sessions is for presentations to be 10 to 12 minutes in length, with a maximum of 15 minutes. Many sessions wait for Q&A to follow all presentations with moderated Q&A and discussion. This makes for an informative and interactive session.
Check with your moderator or the Conference to confirm your session format if you have not already been advised.
