Important Details


We strongly encourage you not to use a presentation, as the panels will follow a discussion format. Should you decide to use a presentation, the following guidelines must be followed, otherwise, your presentation will not be accepted. These guidelines are designed to ensure the best event experience possible for you and the attendees:

  • Must be submitted to Ricky Murray by August 21st. This is a hard deadline, so please make a note in your calendar!
  • Maximum of 25 slides. Ideally, we recommend 5-10 slides to keep things fast-paced and engaging. 25 slides is a hard limit, so please count carefully prior to submission. We will use the first 25 slides should you submit more.
  • 1080p resolution
  • 16:9 aspect ratio; landscape format
  • MP3 audio, MP4 video
  • PPT or PDF (no Keynote, Prezi, etc.)

(Tip: bring a backup presentation on a flash drive, just in case.)

You have already been registered in our system as a speaker. When you arrive onsite, proceed to the registration desk and follow the check-in process.

Dress Code

We recommend business casual or business professional dress. Please be aware the stage is elevated with steps leading up to it. Consider this when you choose your outfit and shoes (e.g., high heels). The stage will have chairs for speakers to sit it, but no table or podium – another thing to consider if you plan to wear a skirt or dress.

Speaker’s Lounge

You can use this space to prepare for your presentation, meet with other panelists, or just relax.


Because we are no longer holding SSF at the Westin, if you booked your hotel with our room block link, and are now experiencing any difficulty, please reach out to Ricky Murray, and he will help with any issues that may have occurred.
