Seminar Session

Do I have a seminar session?

If you're unsure if you have a speaking session as part of your booking, please check your contract or speak to your account manager.

Interested in speaking?

If you're interested in speaking, please speak to your account manager who will be able to run through the different options for you.

Planning your presentation

Why Speak?

Speaking at events is an effective way of getting your message across, this goes beyond your products and services and gives you an opportunity to show expertise in your industry and become thought leaders for your sector. Events provide the opportunity to reach a broad range of people across the sector with your message.

What do visitors want?

People often attend events to find solutions to the challenges they face in their everyday roles, events help them solve these.

People enjoy case studies; this allows them to see how other similar organisations have dealt with similar challenges. Can you bring a client to help deliver a case study?

Generally, people don’t want to go to a seminar to hear a sales pitch, so leave that for the conversations on your stand.

What’s in a title?

The title for your session is extremely important, this is the first impression visitors will have of your session and it therefore needs to attract their attention, but also give them an idea of what they’re going to find out. The session description should then expand on this and explain what they’ll learn about in the session.

What about slides?

Most speakers will prepare slides for their presentation; how many slides will really depend on the type of presentation and the presenter's style of presenting, so get these ready in good time and go through them in advance.

You can send us your slides in advance by email at speakers@salesinnovationexpo.co.uk (deadline for email submission 15th, November 2022) OR bring them along on a USB stick on the day, and drop by the speaker lounge for us to upload to the internal network!

Please note the theatres are set up for 16:9, so we require decks to be formatted in 16:9 to maximise their display.

Submitting your session details

It is important that you get the content in for your session as soon as possible, the earlier you submit your content, the more marketing exposure you’ll receive and therefore more people should attend your session.  The Deadline for submitting your form is 9th September 2022 please liaise with our Customer Success Team if you require an extension.

This can be submitted here - Speaker Submission Form 

Marketing your Session

The marketing team will be in touch towards the event and will share assets to help boost your presence.

On the day

Arrival   

We're asking for all speakers to print their badge at home or the office in advance, this will allow you to enter the event straight away. If you are unable to print your badge in advance you can collect your badge from the Speaker Registration Desk.

From there, you will be directed to take your presentation to the Speaker Lounge so it can be uploaded onto the dedicated network. 

Speakers are asked to arrive at the event at least 30 minutes to 1 hour before their presentation. If you are delayed for any reason please can you let a member of the seminar team know as soon as possible on the contact numbers listed below.

Speaker Lounge

This area is available for your use for the duration of the event. There is seating, wifi and coffee available for you, as well as technicians on hand to provide assistance with presentations or help with any questions. 

Presentation

You can send us your slides, along with any source video files you may be using, in advance by email at speakers@salesinnovationexpo.co.uk (deadline for email submission 15th, November 2022) OR bring them along on a USB stick on the day, and drop by the speaker lounge for us to upload to the internal network!

The recommended format for the presentation is Microsoft PowerPoint on a PC. All theatres will display presentations in a 16:9 ratio so we require decks to be formatted in 16:9 to maximise their display.

We strongly advise that you use the laptop provided in the theatre however if you need to use your own device it is essential that it has an HDMI output to connect with our equipment. If you are using a compact laptop or Mac then you may need a special adaptor, please note that this is your responsibility to bring, as the variant that you require may not be onsite or available at the time of your presentation.  

Seminar

It is very important that you are at your seminar room 10 minutes before the start time of your presentation. The technician in the room will mic you up and get everything ready. The presentation will have been preloaded onto the laptop at the lectern and so by arriving in plenty of time there will be a chance for a quick test/run through.

Theatre

Each standard theatre will be equipped with a projector (16:9 ratio), a laptop, a sound system, a lectern and mic. An AV Technician and Host will be in the room throughout the event.

Internet

Laptops are installed at the lectern for reliability and file-sharing purposes; we strongly suggest you use this laptop provided. Please note that laptops in the theatre in general are NOT connected to the internet. If you wish to do a demo as part of your presentation or use a wireless device, even if it is offline, please get in touch with us so we can assess if we need to make any additional provisions.

If you have any other internet or audiovisual requirements then please do let us know as soon as possible by emailing speakers@salesinnovationexpo.co.uk so that the necessary arrangements can be made.
