Presenter Frequently Asked Questions


Thank you for agreeing to present at the NHRMA 80th Annual Conference & Tradeshow.

Where will my workshop be held?

The NHRMA 2018 Conference is taking place at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade CenterWorkshop session room assignments will be listed in the printed Conference Program book that you receive at the Registration Desk. If you need help locating your room, please refer to the property map in your Conference Program, or ask one of the Registration staff members for assistance.


What is the audio-visual and seating set up in my presentation room?

Each workshop session will be set in a theater-style with a podium and head table in front, and a materials table in the back near the entrance. 

The following audio-visual equipment will be supplied in rooms:

  • LCD Projector
  • Screen
  • PC Computer
  • Slide Advancer
  • Wired Podium Microphone
  • Wired Head Table Microphone

If you require additional equipment, we are happy to connect you with the audio-visual provider to place an order and make direct payments. Please communicate any additional needs that you have NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 2018 to nhrma@conferencesolutionsinc.com. You will receive the audio-visual provider’s contact information at the beginning of July.


Should I bring my presentation with me? 

All presentations will be pre-loaded on all session room laptops. Please set your PowerPoint presentations to widescreen format. Due to their unique nature, tablet or Macintosh users should plan to bring their own computer and adapters to connect to the LCD projector. Given the short break between some sessions, it is important that you have fully tested your presentation file and equipment before you arrive at the Conference. 


Where should I book my hotel reservations?
