Speakers' Expenses

As indicated in the sponsorship agreement, the supporting company, in addition to the support fee, must cover all speakers’ expenses, including registration fees, accommodation and travel expenses.

This also applies in the case where the Sponsored Session speakers have already been invited by the Conference.

Badge Scanner/ Lead Retrieval System

Lead Retrieval systems are a helpful tool for receiving participants’ contact information when they visit your booth or your session. Information obtained by the lead retrieval system enables Exhibitors to enhance their database by securing valuable leads for further marketing and communication.
We are pleased to offer you the “K-Lead” Application. Exhibitors can download the “K-Lead” app onto their own smart phone or tablet and transform their device into an instant, easy lead retrieval system and capture participants’ full contact information with a quick scan of their badge.

The advantages of the “K-Lead” application:

  • Effortless process using registration badge barcode.
  • Allows to immediately view the leads information.
  • Ability to insert exhibitor’s comments for each lead.
  • Ability to quickly scan delegates as they enter the session hall by using the “Quick Scan” function.
  • Application is available for download from Apple store or Google play: “K-Lead App”.

Cost per unit: $ 650 (excluding 4% credit card charges fees, excluding VAT if applicable)

Deadline2 weeks prior to the event 
Onsite rate of EUR 750 will be applied for orders received after above deadline.

To order “K-Lead” Application, please access the Exhibitor’s Portal https://exhibitorportal.kenes.com

Important Notes:

  • Device is not included. The Application should be installed on your company/personal device (tablet/smart phone).
  • All GOLD and SILVER Packages include 1x K-Lead App License, which is automatically added to the Company profile in the Exhibitors Portal. Device is not included. If more licenses are needed, these can be purchased from the Exhibitor’s Portal.
  • In accordance with the general data protection regulation (GDPR), Kenes Group has updated its privacy policy. You can view our updated privacy notice here.
    Kenes will not share delegate’s personal data with third parties without their consent.
    Please note that similarly to sharing a business card, presenting a delegate badge for scanning at exhibition booths or industry symposia constitutes an expression of consent to share their personal details with the company that is scanning their badge so that it may contact them in the future.
  • Barcodes on delegate’s badges contain contact information as supplied by the delegate or the agency responsible for the registration process of the delegate. We regret that in some cases, such as when group registration is completed by a company, we may not be in possession of the full contact details.
  • In addition, please note that neither Kenes Group nor the Organising Committee is responsible for the content of the information.

Coming soon

We strongly recommend scheduling a technical rehearsal in the hall itself and testing the Presentations during that rehearsal. Please make arrangements directly with the Meeting Audio Visual Coordinator.
A technical rehearsal is offered free of charge; however additional charges may apply, depending on hall availability and rehearsal requirements.

Please bring the PowerPoint presentation/s on USB Memory stick and load it on one of the Meeting computers in the Speakers’ Ready Room during Speakers’ Ready Room opening hours and no later than 2 hours before the start of the Session.

If you are using a PowerPoint presentation (or any other PC-based application), please note that you have to deliver it on a USB Memory stick to one of the technicians in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive at the Venue in the morning – and at least 2 hours before the start of the session.

Please note that only meeting computers are used in the session halls. These are supplied with Office 2019 (at least) and the native ratio of the projection on the screens in the halls is 16:9. The meeting will not be able to support lecture slides presented on personal computers.

If you include video clips in your PowerPoint presentation, be sure to test it with the technician in the Speakers’ Ready Room at least 2 hours before the start of the session or as soon as you arrive at the venue in the morning. Please make sure to check it with the technician in the session hall where your lecture is taking place, during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session – even after checking it in the Speakers’ Ready Room.

To use MAC presentations on the PC compatible meeting computer, please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before taking it to the speaker room:

Convert it to PowerPoint or PDF. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (Special characters might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint-based PC). Insert the images as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT – these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).

As previously mentioned, we strongly recommend scheduling a technical rehearsal and testing the presentations during the rehearsal. Please plan directly with the Meeting Audio Visual Coordinator.
