Speaker FAQ

Presentation Locations:

Your session is either on the Main Stage or in one of the two Classrooms. This information was emailed to you and can be confirmed on the online schedule.
Both the Main Stage and the Classrooms are located in The Great Hall.

Badge Pick-Up

All speakers will be able to pick up their badges using their confirmation email at the registration desk. Please have the QR code from your confirmation email available on a mobile device or printed.

Audio/Visual & Session Room Information

IMPORTANT: All presentations MUST be on a USB drive and downloaded in PowerPoint format. Our A/V system does not support any presentation that is stored on an online format like Google Slides. Speakers are responsible for bringing the correct format of presentation. Ensure your presentation is correct by using our slide template found on the speaker portal.

There will be an A/V desk at the Main Stage and at the Classrooms with a designated A/V technician. They will have a schedule and list of all presenters and sessions that are taking place within that area. Each presenter is responsible for delivering presentation materials (slide decks) directly to the A/V tech in the correct room at least 30 minutes prior to the session beginning. we ask that speakers, with or without presentation materials, plan to be in the room and available for mic/stage set up at least 20-25 minutes in advance of the session beginning. 

The rooms include podiums (with microphones), hand held microphones for each speaker, bottled water (just off stage & on podium shelf). Those using slides will be given a slide advancer.

We will be using low chairs on the stage so please take this into consideration when planning clothing.


Moderators will work with the WorkBoat Content Team to develop talking points/questions for speakers to review prior to the event. We use Google Drive so that everyone can access and make suggestions to those.

The slide template can be downloaded within the Speaker Portal for you to use. Slides will also be uploaded to the Google Drive so that speakers can add assets as needed.





Thank you for participating in the 2024 International WorkBoat Show! This FAQ page should help better inform speakers of the stage set up onsite.
