Presentation Guidelines:


  • Our seminar tracks seek to educate its audience and not promote any specific products.  Exhibit space is available for all promotional activity.
  • Speakers must focus their presentation on trending data, third-party research statistics, current problems and multiple solutions (not just their company’s solution). One or two company mentions during the seminar is allowed, however, the majority of content should focus on the attendee benefit.
  • All tracks are open to a panel discussion format. The panel format must be structured with one moderator leading the discussion and two-to-three providers making up the panel. The moderator can be a vendor or an objective third-party. Providers must represent LECs/IOCs/Municipalities or even Utilities. The panel must share a current challenge, the obstacles each provider faces and the network solutions they can employ. Audience involvement is critical with time for Q&A.


Agenda Schedule ISE EXPO managers will set the day and time for each presentation in order to optimize the sequencing and flow of content and tracks. Sessions will end by 10:15 am each day.
