SPEAKER INFORMATION

REGISTRATION AND PARTICIPATION DETAILS

As a highly valued speaker and/or panellist at Best Stay 2018, you will receive a free event pass, which includes access to all conference content, exhibition hall, networking breaks and lunch at the hotel. It is COMPULSORY to fill out the speaker registration form below:

Your badge will be available for you at the registration desk at Rixos Libertas Dubrovnik Hotel from 9 am on November 8 and 9.30 am on November 9. Please bring your conference pass (which I will send closer to the event) with you for identification purposes.
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 English and there will be no simultaneous translation.

A NOTE FOR ALL SPEAKERS (NOT PANELLISTS)

When you arrive, one of our conference team staff will take you to the conference room to introduce you to the technician and test your presentation slides during the break before your presentation (if needed). 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 Friday, October 26 - presentation format should be 16:9.

A NOTE FOR ALL PANELLISTS

One month before the event, you will receive an email from Andrea in which she 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 October 22, feel free to contact Andrea at andrea@proper.com.hr.
