Rehearsal Schedule

The General Sessions will be held in the Pacific Jewel Ballroom at the Sheraton San Diego. To help with your preparations and to ensure your presentation will go smoothly, we ask that you please submit Presentation Description, AV Questionnaire, PowerPoint slide deck(s), and video(s) by the timeline listed above, and participate in a Stage Rehearsal. Prior to the conference, we can arrange conference calls as needed with the AV team to help with your planning.

Please plan for your presenters to arrive in San Diego on Saturday, April 15 so they can participate in the Stage Rehearsals starting on Sunday morning. During rehearsals the Directions Planning and AV teams will be on hand to assist. We will contact you with regard to your rehearsal time. Rehearsal schedule is tightly orchestrated as there will be many teams of presenters.
