Serving the emergency services community, EMS Today provides professionals with a valuable
combination of progressive education, developed by industry experts and JEMS contributors,
and the latest equipment from leading manufacturers.  Emergency services personnel rely on
EMS Today to help develop their careers, create networking opportunities and provide an environment
where camaraderie, pride of service and dedication to saving lives is celebrated.

All the conference rooms for EMS Today 2020 are located at the Tampa Convention Center. To find your session room number go to and click on the conference tab to view the full program. You may search for your name and it will tell you the room number, date and time. 
Log in or go to the Faculty list to find your name which will include your date and times of presentations. For accreditation reasons, it's important that you fill your entire speaking time slot. If you should finish early we recommend some Q&A with the audience or have some questions prepared for a colleague in the audience to spark discussion.

We do ask that you end on time as well. Some of the rooms will have another session in them shortly following the presentation before. It's important that we get the next sessions started as close to on time as possible, especially on Thursday afternoon so attendees can be out in time for the JEMS Games.
Faculty should be in the room where they are scheduled to speak at least 15 minutes before their presentation to download it onto the computer BEFORE the session starts.  
A presentation computer will be provided in session rooms this year but if you choose to bring your own that is also acceptable.

Faculty should bring their presentation on a USB drive. 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. 
The majority of the rooms will offer a screen, projector, wireless microphone, podium microphone, laser pointer, wireless slide advancer and a laptop computer.  Additionally, tabletop mics will be provided for panel sessions.   
With electronic access to your presentation via our password protected site you can upload your handouts before or after your presentation for attendees to download.  We no longer provide a table in the back of the room for handouts.

All faculty are registered by the EMS Today staff. Speakers receiving complimentary badges can pick up their badges from the registration desk onsite beginning on Monday.   

*If you wish to receive CE for speaking or any other session you attend, please log back in and update your license information once you receive your registration confirmation. 

Your badge will cover entrance to the EMS Today exhibit hall, conference sessions Wednesday through Friday, access to the conference online proceedings, keynote, JEMS Games and the networking receptions. 

It does not cover preconference courses on Monday or Tuesday or the breakfast roundtables on Friday. Faculty wanting to attend a preconference course or breakfast roundtable can register for them once you have the confirmation for your registration.  Confirmations are generally sent out in January. 

Wireless internet access is available in the conference session rooms, however, we have found the internet in most convention centers to be unreliable for use in making presentations.
