Speaker Resource Center
Welcome to the Pizza & Pasta NE
Speaker Resource Center
Each educational workshop is 2.5 hours and each educational session is 1 hour, which allows for audience participation. Workshops and sessions must be educational in nature – that is, sales presentations will not be accepted or tolerated. Keep all session content topical and directly related to industry trends, without promoting or “pitching” your products or services.
This brief informal video is a great opportunity for the speaker to introduce themselves, provide a brief description of their session/workshop, and encourage attendees to see them at Pizza and Pasta NE!
This would be used on the website, e-blasts, social media, etc.
Details: coming soon
Each session room will be wired for sound and equipped with a screen, LCD projector, head table with chairs and podium microphone, along with a wireless microphone. You or someone from your session is responsible for providing your own laptop with your presentation fully loaded and prepared. We will provide cables to attach the laptop to the projector. However, if you are using a MAC, please bring your own dongle or check with us ahead of time that AV has the appropriate dongle.
If you have any additional AV requests (flipcharts, etc), please submit your requests on the last page of your speaker agreement. We will do our best to fulfill your request. Please note that all requests may not be able to be fulfilled.
Each room will be set half theater and half classroom.
Session Room Support
There will be a temporary staff member located outside your session room. They are responsible for checking and scanning attendee badges upon entrance, handing out any speaker provided handouts (speaker must print and bring with them), and will give you a 10-minute warning notice prior to your session ending. In case you need assistance, they will also be there as a liaison between you and the AV company.
Pizza and Pasta NE will register all speakers and will have them available for pick up in the speaker lounge on site. Please be sure to stop by as soon as you arrive to the convention center to pick up your badge. This badge will give you access to all sessions, workshops and the show floor.
