Q: When should I arrive at the event?
A: We encourage all speakers to attend as much of the conference as possible. Many of the participants will have seen your name in the brochure and will want to meet you. If this is not possible, we recommend that you arrive at least one hour before your presentation, preferably during a break in the program. This will allow you to run through your slides with our AV technician.
Q: How is the program structured?
A: Our program is structured to encourage as much interaction between speakers and participants as possible. If you are presenting we encourage you to keep your slides short, colorful and informative. Always allow enough time for questions at the end of your presentation.
Q: What will the conference room be like?
A: You will be asked to speak from a lectern on the stage in the conference hall. There is a microphone on the podium. The session chair will be seated in front of the stage throughout the sessions and will use a hand-held microphone. Audience Q&A will be held at the end of each session, except during panels when moderators will keep it more interactive throughout.
Q: What happens if there are changes to the program?
A: The organizing committee tries to minimize changes to conference programs as much as possible, but it is sometimes impossible. If there is a change to the program that affects the time of your presentation, the organizing committee will contact you as soon as possible. We will also inform the delegates of the changes and provide new copies of the program agenda in the conference workbooks. Last minute changes will be communicated as soon as they are known.
Q: What is your accommodation and flights policy?
A: Speakers are expected to book their own travel and accommodations. The organizing committee is not liable for associated costs.
Q: What is the dress code?
A: The dress code at all our events is business casual. Speakers often choose smart business attire, but the decision is up to the individual.
Q: When will I meet the chairmen/moderators/panel members?
A: Chairmen will be provided with an information pack before the event, which will contain important notes and biographies of each speaker.
Q: When can I run through my presentation?
A: Speakers are encouraged to arrive at the venue at least an hour before their presentation will begin. You will then have the opportunity to run through your slides in the break before your presentation.
Q: What should I do if I am delayed on the day?
A: If you are delayed for any reason in getting to the conference, please contact the organizing committee as soon as possible.
Q: What if I need to cancel?
A: If you need to cancel your commitment to speak at a BIT event for any reason, we kindly request that you provide a replacement speaker who can speak on the same or a similar topic.
