It is needed in order to run the event (if your event is not pre-recorded and submitted as an MP4). The PPT deck is uploaded via our platform (by us). From here, slide-by-slide information can be shared with the audience during your event
Why do I need to use the EDI CON ONLINE PowerPoint deck template?
For EDI CON Online branding purposes and consistency throughout the virtual event
The template must be used if you are presenting aTechnical Session. (At a minimum, Workshops and Featured Talks need to use the first and last slide of the template)
Who do I send my deliverables to & how do I send them?
*The email system here does not allow for large attachments, so when sending larger amounts of content (i.e. a slide deck, a full-length video, video clips, etc.) please send them to Jaclyn Seigal at firstname.lastname@example.org via the OneDrive or submit a request to Jaclyn Seigal for access to your EDI CON Online OneDrive folder to upload your deliverables
Are there any specific best practices for submitting my slides?
You may pre-record your presentation using your own resources (an example of a resource you can use to pre-record= Zoom, PowerPoint)
The full-length MP4 file of your pre-recorded event should be sent to Production, Jaclyn Seigal via the OneDrive at email@example.com or submit a request to Jaclyn Seigal for access to your EDI CON Online OneDrive folder to upload your deliverables by September 9, 2022
Is a practice session available?
If a practice is needed, it can be scheduled with production – all practice sessionsneed to be completed by September 15, 2022. (Typically takes 15 minutes.) If the speaker needs to see their slides in the practice, the final deck is needed in place prior. If just a run-through of the platform is needed, the final deck is not due until September 20, 2022 if it isn’t ready at the time of the practice
Will my presentation be shared as a resource document to attendees?
Yes, within the event console’s resource list, there will be a PDF version of your slides available for attendees to download (must provide a PDF of your slides to us if you are submitting your presentation as a video)
When will I receive my leads and how often?
Sponsors (Platinum/Featured Talk, Track, & Workshop), will receive their initial set of leads each Monday post event. Example: will be sent on Monday, October 10, 2022 for events that took place on Wednesday, October 5th.
This process will happen for the remaining events and tracks each week thru Monday, October 31, 2022. After this, On Demand reports will be provided in January 2023 and the final set will be delivered in April 2023.
