REGISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION DETAILS

As a highly valued speaker and/or panellist at Best Stay 2021, you will receive a free event pass, which includes access to all conference content, networking breaks and lunch. It is COMPULSORY to fill out the speaker registration form:
Speaker registration form

Your badge will be available for you at the registration when you arrive at the location from 10 am on October 7 and 9 am on October 8. My colleagues and I will be there to welcome you, as well as to help with anything you may need in preparation for your presentation or panel, and during the event.
All speakers and panellists are kindly asked to arrive at least one break in advance of their session in order to ensure that the conference runs to time.

Be aware that the whole conference programme will be held in Croatian and there will be no simultaneous translation.

A NOTE FOR ALL SPEAKERS

You will be given a microphone and normally run your presentation from a central conference laptop.
When preparing your presentation, please bear in mind the time allocated which includes 5 minutes in the end for questions, unless you take questions throughout your presentation. Your presentation should begin with the key points as in your session description. When preparing your presentation, please do consider the contrast between background colour, font colour and size, for optimum clarity. We advise no more than 1 slide per minute of your presentation – keep it short, simple and effective for the audience. Please visit our PDF guide if you require suggestions for presentation preparation or feel free to contact us if you need more advice.

Send in your presentation by Thursday, September 23 – presentation format should be 16:9.

A NOTE FOR ALL PANELLISTS

One month before the event, you will receive an email from the organisers in which we will introduce you to the other panellists in your panel and the panel moderator. In that email, a time will be suggested for a conference call so that the panellists and the moderator could agree on the final focus, format and flow of the panel, as well as the desired outcome of the discussion.

Our panels don’t normally require PowerPoint slides unless the panel moderator asks for slides specifically. All other details will follow in the introductory panel e-mail.

In case you have not received this e-mail by the September 10, feel free to contact Andrea at andrea@proper.com.hr.

Your colleagues are entitled to a special discount (partner price) on their conference pass by using a code SPEAKBS21 while registering.

Our Marketing Team will be happy to assist you with the production of HTML as well as send banners and logos for use in blogs and to promote your involvement in the event. We would appreciate if you could send us any marketing materials (hotel or project pictures, flyers, articles on related topics, etc.) from your side that we could use for our marketing purposes.

SPEAKER INTERVIEWS & VIDEO
In the lead up to the event, we will be featuring interviews with our key speakers on the conference website. Some have already contributed and you can read their interviews here. These interviews may also be included in our media partners’ magazines, websites, blogs, portals or similar. Please let us know before the May 31 if you’d like to participate in speaker interviews. It won’t be a formal interview, rather I will send you 4-5 questions related to your topic at the event and your thoughts in preparation for the event, and ask you to send answers back in text format.
