Upload Session Files

All presenters are asked to prepare a visual presentation using Microsoft's PowerPoint or a different medium so that session materials can be made available to the attendees via the conference website. Having a copy of the PowerPoint or handouts to take notes is extremely helpful for attendees. Presenters should upload the most current version of the presentation prior to the conference and upload any updates after the conference while the topic is fresh for everyone.

DOWNLOAD TEMPLATE

To upload your presentation:

  1. Go to My Profile.
  2. Click on "My Presentations" on the right hand side of the screen under 'Options'.
  3. Find and click on the presentation you need to upload the file(s).
  4. Click the Files iconicon on the left, and upload each of your files.

NOTE: If you have any problems uploading files, please forward your files with the conference name, session number, and title to support@alliance-conference.com so they can be added into the system on your behalf.
