C. Resources Provided by HAI
HAI will provide session presenters with suitable classroom facilities in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas. Each short session will be scheduled for 60 minutes, and presenters are encouraged to leave time for questions.
Classrooms will be set theater-style to accommodate different instructional and presentation methods and to encourage interaction among session attendees. Presenters should anticipate an audience of 50 or more and design their approach with this in mind. Please note that we are unable to modify room set-ups for individual presentations.
Room set-up will be confirmed upon agreement; however, the set-up should include the following standard equipment: projector and screen, microphone, speaker system, flip chart or white board with markers, and a podium at the front of the room.
Session presenters will be required to arrive 10 minutes in advance of the session to test their presentation with the audiovisual equipment. Presenters are required to encourage students to download the HELI-EXPO Show App to complete the session surveys. The surveys will provide the presenter and HAI with presentation feedback. This feedback is required to determine the following year’s participation.
