Speaker Ready Room

Speaker Ready rooms are equipped with computers installed with presentation software (i.e., PowerPoint). The Speaker Ready Rooms are equipped with a printer. This equipment is available to session presenters FREE OF CHARGE.

Speaker ready rooms are not equipped with copy machines, however, there are copy services and business centers in or near the APHA hotels and the Convention Center.

Session presenters may utilize the speaker ready rooms to preview their presentation, prepare any documents or order last minute audiovisual equipment.  Presenters must use the Speaker Ready room in the property where their session is scheduled.

Who Should Report to the Speaker Ready Room

  • Presenters who have changes to make to their previously uploaded presentation OR have yet to upload a presentation must report to the Speaker Ready Room, in the property where their presentation will be given, at least 16 hours before the start of their session.
