Speaker Ready Room
The Speaker Ready room is available for your use, Islander D (Mandalay Bay Convention Center-North Convention Center) beginning Tuesday, March 27. This room will be set with tables and audiovisual equipment. You may use this room to meet with co-presenters, review your slides or to relax. Coffee/water service and light snacks will be available (for speakers only).

Registration
Please note as a presenter/panelist, you do not need to register to attend Medtrade Spring Conference and Expo. You are automatically registered as a Medtrade Spring speaker which grants you complimentary access to all sessions (with the exception of workshops, power lunch and special events). It is very important to stop by the “Speaker Ready” room Islander D to pick up your badge. 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
Remember the standard set in each room will include LCD projector, appropriate number of microphones and screen. Speakers should bring their own laptop. Note: we are not able to provide conference advancer or internet access for your session. You or your sponsor can rent additional audiovisual equipment from SmartSource Rentals by calling 321.710.3353. 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.
