It is very important to stop by the “Speaker Ready” room C206 to pick up your badge, check-in and receive conference registration materials. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your session in order to allow time for check-in and familiarization with your session room.

Audiovisual and Session Rooms

You or your sponsor can rent additional audiovisual equipment from SmartSource Rentals by calling 800-955-5171. All conference rooms are set ½ classroom and ½ theater. Attendees do not register for an individual session; therefore there is not a precise count on the number of attendees for your session. However, on average the number of attendees per session ranges between 50 to 100+ attendees.

Company Brochures and Additional Speakers

Brochures and flyers that address a particular company or product are not permitted in the educational sessions. All speakers have been pre-approved by the Medtrade Educational Advisory Board. Therefore, as an approved presenter you are not permitted to add additional speakers to your session at this time.
