At the Time of the Conference
Each session room will be equipped for the presentation of PowerPoint slides and include a projector, screens, computer and sufficient audio / pas system including lectern and microphone for the speaker/s.
Presenters willl take their PowerPoint slides to the conference on a memory stick, where an audiovisual technician will load the presentation onto the master system.
Video and audio clips should be embedded in the PowerPoint presentation rather than linking to external files.
All slides will be run from a central operations point and presentation computer. However, if you have a complex presentation, whcih includes multiple media files, we suggest you bring your own laptop as a backup should any issues arise. We always recommend backing up a copy of your presentation and supporting files to a secondary memory stick / computer or via email.
