Most sessions are produced in a moderator/panelists format. Sessions are approximately one hour in length with audience participation and limited audio-visual support.
Because of the number of sessions offered and the need for a balanced program, a limited number of presenters will be accepted. All proposals will be considered based on industry representation, professionalism, prior public speaking experience and relevance to session topic. Proposed presenters will be notified of acceptance by September 24, 2004.
Show management staff will work with the speakers on all logistical, operational and promotional aspects of the session. Speakers are required to prepare and reproduce presentation materials (e.g., handouts and topic outlines). All related hotel and travel expenses are the responsibility of the presenter.
