Speaker Notice #3 - Handout Ideas & Guidelines
Attendees like having the option to download session handouts before arriving at Conference. Over 80% of survey participants rated handouts as an important part of their overall Conference experience. We encourage you to provide handouts before conference to allow attendees time to review them as they build their conference itinerary. The instructions for uploading handouts are coming soon. This email provides some ideas and guidelines for preparing handouts.
Session handouts do not have to be your presentation file, but consider providing information that attendees can use when they return to their work setting. Informative handouts can also boost your session attendance. Here are some ideas:
Synopsis or outline of your session
List of resources, supporting documents or references
Key points of your presentation
List of action items to do before or after your session
Presentation slides or select presentation slides
