Here are some quick tips on putting together a successful PDC presentation.

NEW! Presentation Upload Requirements for Hardware and Software

AIHA will be utilizing new presentation broadcasting equipment. ALL presenters are required to upload electronic copies of their presentations to AIHce’s Presentation Management System in the Speaker Ready Room. AIHce will provide computers in session rooms, upon which the relevant presentation(s) will be loaded. Presenters may not bring personal computers as a way to avoid the upload requirement. You will have an opportunity to review your presentation in the Speaker Ready Room and make updates to your presentation until one (1) hour prior to your session.

  • AIHce recommends PowerPoint (PPT) for all presentations. Adobe Acrobat (PDF) and HTML files may also be used. There is no requirement to use a specific template, but it’s preferred that you use the AIHce PowerPoint Template.

PDC presenters are required to use the computers provided on-site by AIHce. These are Windows-based PCs equipped with Microsoft PowerPoint (Office 2010) and the latest versions of Adobe Acrobat Reader, Windows Media Player, and Quick Time for Windows. Other presentation programs will not be available.

PowerPoint files created on a Macintosh computer will open successfully on a PC/AIHce-supplied computer. However, it is recommended that presenters test their files in the speaker ready room prior to the day of their session to ensure the proper display of fonts, equations, pictures, and videos.
