Thank You For Speaking!

IDEA is honored to have so many industry experts participate as presenters, speakers and panelists for CampusEnergy2021.. While this year's event will be a little different than years past, we feel confident that the technical program is as robust and diverse as it has ever been.  Thank you for sharing your expertise!

Pre-Recorded Session Instructions

If you are a pre-recorded speaker, congratulations, your work is (almost) complete!

Your presentation will go ‘live’ at the time indicated on the educational session. Attendees will be able to access the room 5 minutes before in a ‘waiting room’. Once your presentation goes live, attendees will see the video player, where your recorded presentation will play, a PDF of your PowerPoint slides, your bio, and Q&A section.

Attendees can submit questions in the Q&A section during your presentation, however you will not be able to answer them during the session, nor will you be able to interact with them during the presentation. IDEA will collate the questions for you to provide written responses, then IDEA will publish them on the session page and email session attendees as well. You can also connect with the attendee directly if they

As an attendee, you are welcome to view your own session live.

One Week Before CampusEnergy2021
You should have received two invitations, via email that will be critical to your presentation
  • Speaker “Green Room” invite- the Green Room is essentially the "check-in" where you, other presenters in your session, Moderator, IDEA Staff, and CVENT technician will meet to check your audio and video and take attendance. Please log in to the green room no later than 30 minutes before your session.
  • A Zoom invite, which is where you will broadcast your presentation in the CampusEnergy2021 Attendee Hub. Please log in to your session zoom room no later than 20 minutes before your session start time. CVENT tech will once again perform a general review of everyone's responsibilities and program flow and gives cues as to when the session will be going live.

During Your Presentation

  • IDEA staff will advance your slides – don’t forget to say “next slide” so we advance your presentation.
  • Stick to the 25-minute (maximum) time limit – no exceptions!
  • Look for time reminders in the chat window from the moderators.
