NEW THIS YEAR!
NECA PRESENTATION TALKS
For the first time, NECA is offering the chance for 2017 exhibitors to directly talk about their products and solutions for our industry. These 18 minute “TED Talk” type sessions can be product or service specific, and will take place in an open presentation area directly on the NECA Show floor. This is an exclusive offer to 2017 confirmed exhibitors.
The Presentation Theater is situated immediately adjacent to the Showstopper Showcase, booth 238.
Why 18 minutes?
This opportunity offers a great way to talk about a popular solution that contractors need on the job or in the office, or demonstrate your newest Showstopper entry. It’s long enough to be serious and short enough to hold people’s attention. The 18-minute length works by forcing speakers who are used to going on for 45 minutes to bring it down to 18. They really have to think about what they want to communicate to the audience. It has a clarifying effect and it brings discipline to the presentation. End by inviting interested listeners back to your booth for a more in-depth conversation.
The Presentation Theater will be promoted via NECA social media, emails, and it will have its’ own icon on the official convention mobile app and listed on the website. The following audio visual equipment will be provided: TV monitor, computer, lavaliere microphone and sound system. All presentations are required to be submitted no later than September 14, 2017. These presentations will be loaded onto the laptop provided. Any additional equipment will be at the presenters’ expense.
