Panel Room Setup

All Panel Rooms will be set up with theater style seating unless otherwise noted. An ELMO Machine will be available upon request. Laptops are not provided, you must bring your own. Please locate your Panel Room below for a full listing of A/V equipment and room capacities:

Detailed info about room AV set ups coming soon!

Speaker Badges

If your panel was accepted, you would have received a link in your confirmation email to request speaker badges for your moderator and panelist(s). C2E2 will provide up to 6 speaker badges per panel for panelists only; C2E2 is unable to provide any additional badges for friends, family, etc.

The speaker badge grants each panelist access to C2E2 all four days of the show.

If you did not receive the link to this form, please find it here.

Any panelist who is not registered through the link provided will not receive a badge. Again, speaker badges are for panelists and moderators only. We are unable to provide additional badges.

General Information

Arrival and Setup

Please arrive to your Panel Room at least 10 minutes in advance of your scheduled start time. C2E2 allots 30 minute breaks in between each Panel. As soon as the Panel before yours has concluded, you may begin setting up for your own panel. If you require help setting up your laptop or with any tech, please let a Crew or Staff member know and we’ll be happy to get you the assistance that you require.

Tech Checks

The 15-30 minute breaks that we have scheduled before all Panels should provide ample time to set up your equipment and start your Panel on time. If you feel like you need more time to test your presentation, we have limited availability to schedule tech checks before the show begins. If you would like to schedule a tech check, please contact the C2E2 Content Team at panels@reedpop.com .
