Promoting Your Session

Teaser Video

This brief teaser video is a great opportunity for speakers to introduce themselves, provide a short description of their session/workshop, and to encourage attendees to join them at NPE! This would be used on the website, e-blasts, social media, etc.


  • You can record on anything that has as video camera and good sound, i.e cellphone, laptop, computer, etc.
  • The video can be no longer than 1.5 minutes long.
  • When recording the video, please make sure that is done in a horizontal frame.
  • Get creative and have fun! Show your personality, include your co-presenter, use an interesting background, the possibilities are endless!
  • Please do not post the video. NPE will be adding official show branding.
  • Please send the video to Madeline Kinney when complete as an mp4 file or if the file is too large, please share via DropBox.

Social Media Share

Build excitement for your upcoming NPE presentation and invite your network of industry professionals to join you in Tampa, FL!

Please use the hashtag #NPE2024 in your social media posts. We’re looking for these posts and may even reshare them for extra exposure!

Speaker Ready Room

The Speaker Ready room is available for your use, Room 110 beginning Tuesday, January 23, 2024. This room will be set up with tables and A/V equipment. You may use this room to meet with co-presenters, review your slides, practice your presentation or to relax and take a break from this action-packed event! Coffee/water service and light snacks will be available. The speaker ready room is only accessible to registered speakers

AV and Session Rooms

A/V will be provided in all session rooms and include a projector, screen, slide advancers, and an appropriate number of microphones for presenters and co-presenters.

Speakers are responsible for providing their own laptop for their session with presentation fully downloaded and prepared. If participating on a panel, only the moderator needs their laptop present to present. 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 A/V has the appropriate dongle.

If you have any additional A/V requests such as flipcharts or if your presentation requires sound for videos, please reach out to Kennedy Oglesby, contact info at top of the page. We will do our best to fulfill your request. Please note that all requests may not be able to be fulfilled.


NPE will register you for the Conference complimentary. All speaker badges include access to the Expo Hall and all conference sessions (workshops not included). It is very important to stop by the Speaker Ready room to pick up your badge. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your session to allow time for check-in and familiarization with your session room.
