Through the various sources of seminar feedback that is collected, it has become apparent the attendees have two major complaints. First, seminar schedule information is not available for review in a timely manner. The second, is that some educational seminars have become commercial presentations. We will be diligent in making the changes needed to stop these complaints. You must be registered to attend show to receive a seminar space assignment.
Seminars will be presented within a 60-minute time-period. There will be a 30-minute break between each session. Following the second seminar each day there will be a 90-minute personal-time break for the attendees.
Presenters may not disparage another company’s product or services. You may comment on a specific product or service only if asked by an attendee.
If you want to promote only YOUR specific product or service, FMCA offers a limited number of Product-Specific Seminars. These spots will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The fee is $300 per seminar. There will be a separate application form available to apply for these seminars.
All seminar rooms are monitored. If you choose to violate the product specific/educational seminar rules, your opportunity to present at future FMCA conventions may be at risk and you will be billed the $300.00 for your seminar space rental and the audio visual equipment.
The exception to the rules stated above – Attendees have requested technical seminars about specific engines, chassis, and generators. These companies have been asked by FMCA to provided information that is product specific due to the nature of the topic.
Please have ample handouts of your presentation available or provide download information for the attendees.
