On arrival

Olympia London's entrance is on Hammersmith Road and will be open to visitors and speakers from 09:00. The show floor is on level 2.

Morning speakers are requested to arrive at the Speaker Lounge by 09.00; afternoon speakers by 13.00.



Please come and meet us in the Speaker Lounge so we can register your arrival, check any presentation is working etc. and introduce you to fellow speakers.

We request that speakers arrive at their assigned theatre 20 minutes before the first theatre session “in the run” starts (i.e. the start of the day, the start of the afternoon, or after the morning/afternoon break). We will test your mic and make sure everything you need is working.

Presentation guidelines






We are aiming for a pacey, dynamic feel for the presentations. Please use your slides as an opportunity to frame your speech – more visuals and fewer words create a bigger impact.

The final deadline for presentations is 26 October 2018.

Please use a 16:9 screen size ratio for your presentation. If you need any assistance on this please contact Michelle

How to check the screen size of your presentation: You can check the screen size of your presentation is in by clicking in the top menu on 'Design' and then select 'Slide Size' which you can find on the right hand side of the menu bar

We request that all presentations use the CIBSE branded conference slides. Download Build2Perform Live PPT TEMPLATE

In the interests of fairness to our event sponsors, we request that your company logo is inserted on the front and last slides only.

Please ensure you have a backup copy of your presentation on a memory stick on the day.

Each theatre will be equipped with:

  • lectern + lectern mic
  • laptop at lectern
  • table mics on the “top table” for panel sessions
  • audience roving mics (manned) - in appropriate theatres

Fellow speakers

It’s likely many speakers will already know each other (well). In any event, Helen will put all speakers in touch with one another for effective dovetailing of contributions. Please liaise directly, and please arrange to meet onsite – the Speaker Lounge is at your disposal as a good meeting point for speakers and session chairs.

The Speaker Lounge will serve tea & coffee for speakers & session chairs (only).

Our marketing team will be promoting sessions on Twitter and LinkedIn. Please get involved –
