Presenter Information

All presenters must register for the conference and pay the registration fee.

Helpful resources for confirmed presenters of this year's conference

Uploading Your Presentations to the Conference App

Presenters should upload their presentations (PDF format only) directly to the STFM Conferences mobile app.

Presenters should have already received an email from STFM's approved show vendor, Core-apps, containing login information for the speaker web portal where presentations can be uploaded. If you have not received the email, contact Noah Asher from Core-apps at noah@core-apps.com.

There is no deadline for uploading your presentation. However, we highly recommend that you upload your materials before the conference so attendees can become familiar with your session topic ahead of time.

Along with uploading your presentation to the mobile app, please upload your presentation to the STFM Resource Library, as well. The mobile app will not be available after the conference, so uploading your presentation to the STFM Resource Library allows the presentation to be available to attendees later.
 
You will need to bring your presentation on a flash drive to use with the computers in the session rooms during your actual presentation. If you plan to use video or audio as part of your presentation, please be sure to include it on your flash drive. We do not recommend live streaming during your presentation, as we cannot guarantee an adequate WiFi connection.
