PRESENTER INFORMATION:

 

Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego, California, November 2-5, 2016

 
 

Platform Presentations

Platform presentations will be 10 minutes in length with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Please bring your presentation on a memory stick/flash drive to the Audiovisual Desk, located inside the meeting room where your presentation will take place, upon arrival at the conference. Please have it labeled with your name and date/time of presentation and use your last name as the file name. All presentations will be loaded onto a single PC to help ensure a quick and efficient change from one presentation to the next and will help us maintain our timeline. If you will be using a MAC-based presentation, you must provide your own MAC laptop or save your presentation in PC-compatible format. We strongly recommend that you check your presentation on a PC after the conversion. We are not responsible for compatibility issues due to conversion.
 
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Val Vega with Encore Event Technologies (in-house audiovisual company at the Manchester Grand Hyatt) at phone 619-358-6772 or e-mail val.vega@encore-us.com.
