Presenter information – Important, please read

You’ll need to check in as soon after your arrival as possible but no later than 30 minutes before your presentation timeslot.  PantheaCon programming begins at 1PM Friday and at 9AM on every other day. Time slots are 90 minutes in length, with 30 minute breaks in between.  Lunch breaks are extended to an hour (12:30-1:30PM each day), and dinner breaks are two hours (5:00-7:00PM).

We ask that you arrive at your designated room at least 15 minutes prior to your presentation.  You will be assigned a Programming staff member – they will introduce themselves and verify the room setup with you.  Please keep in mind that they will need to locate you in a possibly crowded room, and that you may not be the only person wearing a Presenter ribbon in the room.

Please remember that fire of any kind is not allowed in the hotel.

If you have requested microphones, speakers, electrical power, or a video projector, PantheaCon’s Tech department will have a staff member in the room as early as possible prior to your presentation for setup. They may also need to be able to find you in a crowd, so please keep an eye out for them. Other important notes:

  • Although PantheaCon staff will do their best to meet your needs, we largely rely on donated and rented equipment. Due to the possibility of equipment failures and other issues, we cannot promise that we will be able to provide everything you have requested.
  • During your presentation, we ask that you not touch any of the equipment in your presentation room (microphones excepted) unless you have explicitly been given permission by a Tech staff member.
  • After your presentation, the Tech department is asking that you or someone from your presentation group remain in the room until a staff member arrives to retrieve any Tech equipment used during your presentation.
  • Feel free to email tech@pantheacon.com if you have any questions before arriving at PantheaCon.
