When is my presentation / paper due?  Thursday, September 14th, 2017

It is important that we receive your presentation well in advance of the start of the conference.

Because our speakers are seasoned professionals  and of influence, it is important to us  that we be able to provide speaker papers to our delegates that reflect your best thinking and opinion on your topic.  Speaker papers will be an additional item to your presentation and are of significant value to our delegates as they continue to learn and lead in their fields.  Papers can be articles that you have authored or what you consider to be the best thinking from other sources.  We do not expect you to produce new material just for the conference but we are always looking for leading edge information that you feel should be made available to the delegates to further enrich your topic.  

Papers and presentations will be posted online for the delegates to download.  

Please submit to Jillian Lang at  info@steplatamconference.com

What if my presentation is late?

We can not guarantee that presentations or updates will be accepted after the submission date.

To continue to present delegates with a Conference of the highest quality, and also, to ensure that the presentations of our speakers are properly loaded/programed and ready to go, so the execution of the presentations parallels the professionalism of our speakers, we ask that you take into consideration the preparatory work needed, and kindly submit your presentations on time.

At the conference we are very busy working with the AV team to ensure a professionally run event.  We are not always able to get online or have time to check our emails so please do not email updated presentations while we are onsite.

What if my presentation requires handouts?

If submitted in advance with your presentation, we can arrange to have your handout posted on the website.

If you want the delegates to have a hard copy,  please bring 200 copies. Drop these  off at the registration desk and we we can hand these out as people register or arrange to distribute them prior to your session.

What time do I present?     CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

Please refer to the conference schedule posted online. As we may need to make some minor adjustments up until the start of the conference, be sure that you check the schedule the day before you present.

Please identify yourself to one of the Springstreet staff at the break prior to your presentation.

The date, time and descriptor of your presentation are posted on the conference schedule.

Do I need to bring a copy of my presentation or my laptop?

You should bring a copy with you on a memory stick as a backup. However, the presentation that you have submitted,  by the due date, will be preloaded onto the technician’s computer and will be on the screen ready to go. You will have a wireless mouse on the podium to advance the slides. There will be a TV monitor in front of you so that you can see your presentation without turning around.

There will be a podium and microphone available, however, if you wish to use a lapel microphone please advise the technician well before you go on stage.

Expense Policy
