  • All session rooms will include an ENC Speaker PC and MAC (with the latest OS and software) on stage for presentations.  Please bring your presentation on a USB drive at least 30 minutes before your session and load it onto one of the ENC Speaker laptops.  You can even load your presentation the day before your session, the earlier the better!  Just make sure you tell the AV technician which session you are in.  You can use your own laptop as a last resort.
