We’re considering a number of options to make next year’s conference more interactive than previous ones. One option we’d like to explore is giving ticket-holding attendees (other than the ‘daytime’ speakers) the opportunity to make presentations in the evening, on the first or second days. The room will be the same as that used for the ‘daytime’ speakers, Legends’ Lounge (max. capacity 350, seated). The room – along with others – is available to us until midnight on each day.
Our initial proposal is to give people slots of 30 minutes to use as they see fit, though we recommend they speak for 20 minutes, and leave a maximum of 10 minutes for Q&A. We shall advertise these talks in advance on this website and at the conference, so other attendees will have the opportunity to attend the talks that interest them. If you’d like to talk, please email us ([email protected]) with the following:
- talk title
- details of proposed content (max. 100 words)
Presenters will be free to have their talks video and/or audio recorded, but this will not be done by the team who will be filming the daytime presentations. They will, however, have to abide by the Recording Guidelines (we’ll be modifying them shortly to take account of evening presentations).
There’s a large bar at one end of the Legends’ Lounge, by the entrance, we’ll decide nearer the time whether we’ll have it open during the evening talks.
