Audio/Visual Equipment Requests

The MMLA will provide audio/visual equipment when possible. All participants who requires a computer during their presentation must bring their own laptop. Mac users must also bring their own cables to connect to projectors. Connections for non-Mac computers will be provided by the A/V vendor. Wireless connections are often available but cannot be guaranteed. Please make sure your presenters are aware of these limitations.

Because rental agreements for audio/visual equipment must be signed months in advance, and because late additions incur hefty fees, the cost of last-minute requests will be the responsibility of the session organizer. These can range from $200 to more than $500 each day. To avoid these costs, please submit this form by June 17, 2013.

Check all that apply (required)
 LCD projector, cables, cart, screen DVD player, screen, cart Speakers or hotel sound system No Equipment Requested Other equipment (specify below)
Other equipment is subject to availability and financial feasibility
