PowerPoint Best Practices
- Keep text on page simple and short
- Include images appropriately
- Proofread and spellcheck your presentation
- Avoid product logos or branding
- Embed any videos in your presentation
Presenters are asked to submit an electronic copy of their handouts in PDF form by April 1, 2024 for publishing in the attendee library. Presenters are responsible for printing and providing an adequate number of handouts if they would like to provide physical copies to attendees.
Presenters will be offered standard audio-visual support which will include a podium, microphone, projector, screen, laptop with your final NCA-approved PowerPoint loaded, and HDMI cord. Your NCA approved PowerPoint presentation will be preloaded on the laptop in your assigned meeting room. No changes are allowed to presentations after the April 1, 2024 deadline. There will be a workshop host assigned to your room to assist with any audio-visual issues.
Wireless internet speed and connection is not guaranteed in meeting spaces. We recommend embedding any links or videos into your presentation. If you need a stable internet connection, then a hardwired internet connection can be added for an additional fee.
