We have an open call for raffle prize submissions. Let's pump up our contractors and give them even more ways to enjoy this event!

Presentation Time + Room
Our schedule is posted on our website. This schedule is subject to change and we will post updated schedules as soon as they become available. Presenters will receive their presentation room assignment upon check-in.
Set-up + Audio Visual
Each presentation slot will have a 15 minute set-up block preceding it. Your presentation room will be available to you during that time so you can connect with your team and test out the AV equipment.
The presentation spaces will have a "stage" area with a podium and screen if you need to project a presentation (if you wish, but not required). The presentation podium faces rows of chairs for attendees to use.
While there is wi-fi at the facility, we are asking all presenters to be sure to bring a storage device with your presentation (if applicable) so there are no last minute issues.
We will not ask attendees to register for presentations in advance, but we will be promoting/announcing each presentation ahead of its slot.
We expect that some presentations may have standing room attendees, in addition to seated guests, if a presentation is particularly popular.
