Speaker presentation: our format

If you're using slides, make sure your presentation is compatible with our audio/visual requirements.

Session content: 50 minutes in length including time for Q&A.

In crafting your remarks, please keep in mind that SPARK conference programming is educational in nature. While it is acceptable for speakers to briefly highlight a product/service during the session, the discussion should focus on informing rather than selling.

Slide template: wide screen 16 x 9 slide format.

Presentation format: We will need a PowerPoint for projection of slides and a PDF for slide sharing with attendees.

Video & audio file support, animations or custom fonts: Please notify us in advance if your presentation will include animation, movies, video or audio clips. PowerPoint does NOT embed these items and would need to be coordinated with onsite A/V team in advance.

If you will be using a specialized font, it should be embedded in your PowerPoint.

Backup: Please bring a copy of your presentation with you to the conference. You should copy your PowerPoint and all video/audio clips to a folder on a USB thumb drive.
