Speaker Resource Center

Welcome to the Speaker Resource Center!


Conference: Oct. 25 – Oct. 27, 2018


New York City/Javits Convention Center

Thank you for interest in speaking and presenting at NYVR Expo. We know preparing for a presentation takes considerable time and thought. The Speaker Resource Center will provide assistance in helping you with your efforts. We have developed forms and tips to help us both succeed in providing the best possible industry education. As a speaker/presenter at the conference, you are making a difference! The sessions will provide all attendees with various levels of experience (basic to advance) with new and creative ideas and tools to implement in their own practices. The Speaker Resource Center is intended to guide you through the planning steps, keep you on track with important deadlines and provide staff contact information should you need additional assistance.
