Please design your presentation delivery using the standard package of AV equipment provided by Plant Based World Expo.

Standard Set:

  • LCD Projector & Screen (16:9)
  • Windows PC notebook computer
  • Podium with wireless microphone (can be used hand-held or in microphone stand)
  • DI Box to for audio or video in presentation.
  • Head table with seating for each speaker.
  • Tabletop microphones (one will be provided for every two speakers)

Things to Keep in Mind:

  • You are responsible for bringing your presentation to the session room.  This ensures you will have the latest and greatest version of the presentation at the time of your session.  We recommend bringing your slides on a flash drive.
  • PBW does not provide internet access in the session rooms.
  • Personal Computers including MACs.  We strongly recommend presenters use the computer provided with the room.  The A/V team configures house computer to work with the projector and audio outputs.  Using the house computer will allow for a fast reset between sessions and ensures we can provide the support needed.  Our A/V set is not prepared for a MAC computer.  If you are considering bringing your own computer, please email [email protected].
  • Remotes/Laser pointers/Slide Advancers.   We do our best to provide a remote in each room but find they often disappear. If it is instrumental to your presentation then you should plan to bring your own as we cannot guarantee one will be available.


Please take a moment to review all of the presentation guidelines.  It is your responsibility to coordinate with your fellow presenters as to who submits the final information. You can also download a presentation template and/or the PBW logo for use in your presentation. While including the presentation template is optional, we would like you to include the PBW logo on your slides. See below to download the PBW logo in an array of colors.


We would love to see you invite your colleagues and clients! Please use the VIP Code: MYGUEST when inviting anyone to the show. Entry is free for buyers.
