AV/Projection Facilities

BOHS advises that we only support PowerPoint (PPT) for presentations. Please do not bring any other presentation formats as these may not be compatible.

Technical, Workshop, and Themed Session presenters are required to use the computers provided on-site by iSTEAD. These are Windows-based PCs running Windows 10 and using PowerPoint 365.

If you intend to use a Mac computer, you will need to bring your own computer and correct Mac adapter in order to run your presentation off it.
