Charleston Premiers: Five Minute Previews of the New and Noteworthy
Application Deadline: Monday, September 29
Date/Time: Saturday, November 8, 2014
8:00 – 9:30 AM
Location: Carolina Ballroom
Francis Marion Hotel, Charleston, SC
In 2013, due to requests on the attendee evaluations and comments from participating vendors and publishers, we changed the format of the Saturday morning sessions in order to better provide a wide breadth of content on new and updated products that are of interest to the Charleston Conference community. The changes were met with overwhelming support and positive reviews, so we will continue in the same format for 2014.
These sessions are designed to offer publishers and vendors the chance to showcase their newest and most innovative products, platforms, and/or content. A continental breakfast buffet will be available for attendees. Speakers will be organized in a “lightning round” format with 15 companies, each allotted 5 minute presentations, back-to-back. Powerpoints must be turned into our moderator in advance so they may be loaded onto the laptop provided in the ballroom ahead of time. More information on presentation requirements will be sent upon acceptance of your proposal.
All applications will be reviewed after the deadline by our Planning Committee, and notifications will be sent out shortly thereafter. Please don’t hesitate to contact Leah Hinds at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the application process.
For more information and to apply, please see the Charleston Conference website.
