The standard meeting room set-up consists of a skirted table for presenters, podium, laptop, projector, screen, laser pointer/slide advancer, two handheld wireless microphones, and a lavaliere (wireless) microphone. Rooms will be arranged in theater-style seating.

How many people will attend my session?
Room sets range from about 80 to 90 people. We do our best to assign adequate room space for each session based upon anticipated attendance.

Will my session be evaluated? Will I receive a copy of evaluations? How are they used?
Evaluations are available both electronically, via the GuideBook app, and paper for attendees who do not have a smartphones or tablet. 

A conference staff member will pass out and collect evaluation forms for your session. After the conference, they are compiled and issued to every presenter.
