Ask people to download in advance Remind preconference leaders 2 weeks before the conference to send an email to registrants. (Email registrants 1 week in advance b/c time before travel is hectic, may be offline)


If you do the preconferences in the main conference space (vs. in spread-out off-site spots), many people will expect breakfast or at least regular coffee/tea/soft-drink breaks throughout the day (so have them?)



  1. Make people use a single conference PC (but Mac, Linux, Win?)


  1. Expect higher bandwidth issues on pre-conferences if held in same venue.
  2. Find out exactly which ethernet ports in the venue are on the protected bandwidth dedication and be sure speakers are hooked to them.
  3. Make sure wireless access points are not plugged into ports that have protected bandwidth dedication.
  4. For preconferences, do downloads before coming - minimizes problems with bandwidth, and saves time at the preconference to work with the app
