Hotel Reservation (TAPPICon LIVE!)
TAPPICon LIVE! speakers and attendees receive a Conference discount when booking their room at a TAPPICon designated hotel. You must be registered for the Conference Program before receiving the link for the discount. The deadline for the discounted room rate is September 10, 2021. We recommend you book your hotel room as soon as possible as TAPPI's discounted room blocks tend to sell out as the event approaches. Learn more
- Use the TAPPICon PowerPoint Template for your presentation.
- PowerPoint decks need to be in 16:9 aspect ratio to properly fit projectors/screens.
- Final presentations, in the form of a slide deck, must be uploaded to the TAPPI Speaker Management system prior to the conference (unless you’ve made other arrangements with your session chairperson).
- Have a backup of your presentation on hand, ideally on a USB key.
- If you’re using your own laptop, set the screen resolution for optimal clarity and ensure you test your slides on the projector prior to your session.
- Company name may be displayed on the first slide only. Trade names may be used only once.
- If your deck contains crucial information which can stand alone, consider providing your audience with printouts that they can refer to later.
- All presentations must be in compliance with TAPPI’s antitrust and commercialism Policies. Your deck will be reviewed prior to your session. Any slides that are not compliant will not be allowed in your presentation.
- Once approved, your materials will also be included in the Conference proceedings, with your permission. You may give TAPPI your permission on your submission form in the Speaker Management System.
