Between now and the conference, you will receive the following via e-mail:

  • A copy of your session title and description as it will appear in the event program. You will need to review this (it may be edited) and provide approval.
  • Your assigned presentation date, time, room location, and room capacity.
  • A request for electronic copies of materials you'd like to make available to conference attendees via the Guidebook event app.

As a presenter, you are responsible for your travel arrangements and hotel accommodations.

A limited number of rooms are available so please book a room at your earliest convenience.

Room Capacity
Room capacities vary from 40–150 people. Since pre-registration for individual sessions is not required, we cannot estimate actual attendance. You will be provided with the details of your room assignment prior to the event.


Set-up and A/V Technicians
Each room is set up with A/V equipment and complimentary Wi-Fi; however, you will need to bring and use your own laptop. A/V technicians will be on site to provide troubleshooting assistance.


Will you distribute all the information to my co-presenters?
No. It is the main presenter's responsibility to communicate all conference information to all co-presenters in a timely manner. We will only send presenter communications to the main presenter’s e-mail address listed on your proposal submission form.


Do I need to provide my own handouts?
To save you time and money, we suggest that instead of providing hard copies of your presentation materials to attendees, please e-mail your materials to cfs@bfk.org. Materials will be posted on Guidebook, our event app, and will be made accessible to conference attendees. Of course, if your presentation requires attendees to use a particular document during the session, please plan to bring your own copies to distribute.
