Like no conference you have attended


Successful presentations are about sharp messages, intelligent design, smart techniques, and poise before an audience.


We deliver insight, inspiration, and community to create a conference experience that you will remember forever.


Spend three days with us and immediately distinguish yourself from 99% of the people creating or delivering presentations today.

Whether you attend as a roomie or a Zoomie, our breadth of coverage, depth of expertise, willingness to help, and passion for creating engagement all add up to a business conference that is completely unlike any other you will attend.

Two phenomenal learning opportunities

Servicing two robust communities is a sacred obligation and hybrid won’t cut it any longer. So in 2024, you can choose to be a roomie, a Zoomie two weeks later, or you can have your cake and eat it, too.

Oct 20-23    The In Person Experience

World-class instruction • inspiring keynotes • community learning • unparalleled networking • life-long bonding

The glorious shores of Mandalay Bay in Ventura County will be our home for the week.

Nov 3-6    The Virtual Experience

Same curriculum as the in-person conference

All seminars and keynotes delivered live

Content available on demand for 12 months

The Return of Sunday Crash Courses

Farewell to Death by PowerPoint

Rick Altman's world-renowned workshop on presentation fundamentals

The perfect jumpstart to the conference returns Sunday morning, Oct 20 and Nov 3, with deep dives into the type of insight and advice tha has made this conference famous since 2003. With deep dives into foundational presentation design advice and practical training on the creation process, these two hours might be the best $95 one can ever spend.


Template Creation Workshop

Echo Swinford and Julie Terberg show why nobody knows templates like they do

Get ready for the most authoritative template training the world will ever see, as the two who wrote the book on the subject hold a template-building clinic for all comers.

This is a total hands-on workshop in which you will get a chance to build a template. Your company slides will never look better and never function more efficiently than after two hours in the company of elite practitioners of their craft.


Available to both roomies and Zoomies, each of these comprehensive courses costs just $95 additional.

For complete information on these two valuable options to the main conference, read our course outlines.
