Back by popular demand for 2019, exhibitors may have the opportunity to make short presentations during the hosted luncheon as a way to enhance their participation value. Please read the following details carefully if this opportunity is of interest to your company.
How Do We Secure a Presentation Slot?
The attendees will actually decide who is invited to present. As part of the opening general session, which will incorporate electronic survey technology, the audience will be asked which exhibitors should be given presentation opportunities. The results will be displayed in real time, with the top 3 audience choices given a presentation slot. To be clear, if your company is not in the top 3 based on audience responses, you will not be given the opportunity to present. Please keep this in mind should you wish to “apply.”
How Long is Each Presentation Slot?
Five minutes – time limit strictly enforced. And we do mean “strictly, so please be sure to carefully time your presentation.
How/When Will the Presentations Be Scheduled
Exhibitors chosen by the audience will be scheduled during the hosted luncheon, March 19 based on alphabetical order. The results will be announced during the welcome remarks on March 19. In this regard, designated presenters must be available at the luncheon – if you are not available for your designated time slot, you forfeit the opportunity.
Can We Use Presentation Slides?
Yes, but any slide must be submitted to SIIA no later than Friday, March 1.
Is There Any Charge to Present
No, this is included as a value-add as part of your exhibitor fee. But please keep in mind that you are not guaranteed an opportunity to present as described above.
