Preparing Your Session

Before you start putting together your presentation, be sure to take a look at the Preparing for Your Session page for tips on the audience for Guild events, what kind of presentation people expect, how many people may attend your session, and more.

Session Materials

Whether you’re a first-time speaker or a seasoned professional, be sure to visit the Session Materials page for information on how sessions work at this event and tips on what we’ve seen resonate with our audiences.

Speaker Registration

If you’re the primary speaker for a session, you’re automatically given a full-conference registration and don’t need to do anything more. Your first co-presenter is given a substantially discounted registration rate, and all further co-presenters must register at the full-conference rate. For more details, including information on registering for pre-conference activities, review the Speaker Registration page.

Hotel Information

2018 Realities360 will be taking place at The Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, California. We are offering a special reduced group rate at this hotel. For more information about the group rate and the hotel location, visit the Hotel Information page.

Promoting Your Session

We strongly recommend promoting your session on social media to help build a larger audience for it. For tips and images you can use to do this, visit the Session Promotion page.

This site will answer the most common speaker questions, but if you need information you can’t find here, feel free to reach out to the program team by emailing programs@eLearningGuild.com.

We’re excited to have you as a speaker at 2018 Realities360 and are looking forward to seeing you in San Jose.
