Class Information

· Class teaching slots are not guaranteed.

· Classes are chosen by the board to diversify and fulfill member topic recommendations.

· Once you are registered as a vendor you will receive an email with a link to submit topics that you would be interested in teaching.

· This is a technical conference.  Classes should be instructional in nature.  

· If you want to showcase your product, do so by showing the product in use, rather than information in slides.

· When people leave your class they should walk out the door with a feeling that they have learned something.
A good example of this could be a wireless vendor describing common problems within wireless networks, then using that example to show how their product mitigates that issue.                                                or                                                                                                                                                   If you are a software vendor, demonstrate the software interface, how it works, how to use it, and what it accomplishes.
