If your session is approved, the Lead Presenter will be emailed a link to the special Registration Portal for Approved Presenters.

If you and/or your Co-Presenter (if any) plan to present the breakout session and then leave, there will be no registration fee. By not registering, you will not be given a name badge, program manual or tote bag, and will not be able to participate in any other sessions or meal functions at the Conference.


  • HANDOUTS: You will be responsible for preparing handouts for your session(s). Presenters are highly encouraged to submit their handouts prior to the conference to be uploaded to a conference Dropbox account. Participants will have access to the Dropbox at the conferences. Presenters are welcome to still provide handouts if they like. Plan to provide 50-75 handouts. If you feel your session will be popular, please adjust amount as you feel necessary.
  • HOTEL RESERVATIONS: Presenters must make their own hotel reservations and are responsible for all other travel expenses.
  • CO-PRESENTERS: All communications regarding your breakout session will come to the Lead Presenter directly, and will be responsible for sharing it with a Co-Presenter (if any). Also note the rate structure for Co-Presenters above. If a Co-Presenter is not added at the time of the CFP submission, one cannot be added in the future.
  • WI-FI: The hotel is equipped with Wi-Fi Internet that is complimentary for all attendees. However, we highly recommend designing your session so that you will not need internet access, since it can be slow or unreliable.
  • AUDIO VISUAL EQUIPMENT: All meeting rooms will be arranged theater style. Please note that the Conference will provide a screen, A/V cart and power supply at no charge to you. However, the Conference will not be able to provide any other A/V equipment. You are responsible for providing your own LCD Projector, laptop and dongle/appropriate adapter, if needed for your presentation. If your presentation requires sound for a video or sound effect please make the necessary plan to provide that equipment on your own. If you need additional audio visual equipment, please contact the hotel. Any arrangements you make with the hotel will be at your own expense.
  • IF YOU MUST CANCEL – If after you have been chosen to present you find out that you must cancel please plan to have someone in mind to take your place.  This may be your Co-Presenter, if you have one, or someone else qualified to present your material.
