Uploading Your Presentation 

Bring your files to upload to the tech table at the rear of the room at least 1-hour prior to your presentation time. We will upload and test them. Please bring your files on a USB flash drive or any USB device only please. Retrieving files from email is not recommended due to unreliable hotel internet. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE YOUR OWN LAPTOP. 

If you have any videos in your presentation, you must meet with the AV techs as early as possible during the conference to ensure that they run. If we cannot test them ahead of time, we cannot ensure that they will run properly. We recommend that you bring the separate video files with you just in case there is a problem. 

At the Podium 

There will be a confidence monitor for your presentation viewing with a slide advancer. Additionally, there is a countdown timer next to the monitor to inform you of your presentation time. Note that “Speaker Notes” are not seen on the podium monitor, so if you need them print them out ahead of time.
