Summit sessions are 1 1/2 hours long.  Knowledge Hubs sessions are 30 minutes or 1 hour.

Speakers should be in the room or theatre where they are scheduled to speak at least 30 minutes before their presentation to download it onto the computer BEFORE the session starts.  There will be an AV tech on hand to assist and a committee chair to introduce you. 

Speakers should bring their presentation on a USB. The presentation should be downloaded to the desktop and accessed from there. Show management will not be able to provide access to any previously loaded presentations.  If your utility does not allow for use of a USB please go to the Speaker Ready Room where USBs and computer access will be provided. 

This is entirely up to your session chair. Please confirm when they make contact with you in the 30 days before the conference.
