Presentation Format/Template:
IMAPS does not require you to use a conference powerpoint template.
You are able to use your regular company/preferred powerpoint templates.
Please include the IMAPS show name and dates on your template and/or an IMAPS logo.

Poster Session/Information
The poster session is planned to be an INTERACTIVE presentation. This means you do not start and complete a scheduled talk without interruption like in a regular/oral session. Speakers should have talking points and be at their poster throughout the entire session (Wednesday, March 8 from 5:30pm-6:30pm). You can "present" your scheduled materials, but more often the attendees will review your slides and ask questions. Or you can watch them and talk to them depending on which slide they are on. Authors may either print out each of their powerpoint slides on regular paper and tack them up in order, or prepare a large poster (or 2 even). Recommended poster size is typically 3x4 feet, with the max space on the board being 4 ft high x 8 ft wide. IMAPS staff will provide tacks to secure your print outs. The session is first-come-first-serve so there are not assigned poster boards/locations. POSTER SETUP FROM 4PM UNTIL 5:00PM on Wednesday, March 8.

Dress Code:
There is no officially "dress code" for IMAPS Conferences. We ask you to be BUSINESS CASUAL or whatever more you prefer. Most speakers tend to be in business pants and button down/company logo shirts (Women in dresses or the same). Suits, sport coats and ties are common as well. We do not recommend casual attire.

Session rooms will be equipped with:
Screen, projector, podium, IMAPS laptop (with Microsoft Windows and recent OFFICE suite), microphone, and slide remote/laser pointer.

All session presentations are 25 minutes followed by 5 minutes for Questions
You are required to load your powerpoint/presentation onto the session laptop yourself using your USB drive.
Speak with your session chair if you need assistance.

About the Session:
Sessions begin with Session Chairs making general announcements. Session Chairs will then introduce speakers by reading BIOs. Speaker will present for 25 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for questions. Session Chairs will thank the speakers. This process is repeated for each speaker in the session. Many sessions will take refreshment breaks (see program).

Photography is not permitted in the session rooms.

Silence all mobile phones during session attendance.


Hotel Reservation Deadline - February 1, 2017

Housing accommodations must be made directly to:

WeKoPa Resort & Casino - SOLD OUT
10438 North Fort McDowell Road
Scottsdale/Fountain Hills, AZ 85264

IMAPS Discounted Single/Double Room Rate: $175/night + taxes + fees - SOLD OUT

IMAPS DOES NOT have another room block, but we can point you to another area hotel:

IMAPS recommends another area hotel for those unable to get a room at WeKoPa Resort:

Comfort Inn
It is 3 miles away down Shea Blvd.

Book your hotel reservation today! We have reserved a block of rooms at the host hotel to accommodate our attendees. The discounted room rates are only available until the hotel deadline listed above, or until the room block sells out (and they often sell out early - before the expire dates). Reservations received after the noted deadline or after the room block has been filled may be subject to significantly higher rates. IMAPS room blocks at most hotels historically sell out ahead of the discount deadline, so we encourage you to make your hotel reservations quickly for the best price and availability.

Hotel Scams Alert!
All reservations should be made directly with the hotel and within the IMAPS room block. We are not using a housing company. If any person or firm contacts you and offers to handle your reservations, please beware. They are completely unauthorized and possibly fraudulent. The convention industry is currently plagued by such groups. If you use one of them and experience any problems, including lost deposits and no reservation when you arrive, IMAPS may not be able to assist you. Please be aware in particular of one of these unauthorized firms – Exhibition Housing Services – whose salespeople have falsely claimed to be calling from IMAPS.

The only way to book a room in the official IMAPS Housing Block using the reservations information above.
