WASBO will provide presenters a projector and a microphone (if necessitated by the room and audience size). Presenters are asked to bring their own laptops if one is needed for the session.

If you are a Buildings and Grounds Director, consider teaming up with your colleagues /vendors to present a session on an innovative idea or best practice you have implemented in your district. Attendees appreciate the information provided by their peers and often find they can apply what they have learned at the conference when they return to their districts.

Vendors are strongly encouraged to team up with a school district professional to co-present educational and informative solutions to over 300 facilities directors. Inviting district personnel to co-present gives additional credibility to the information you are providing. If you present quality information, attendees will remember the expert who provided it.
