SIMA will add a PDF of your slides and any handouts you provide to the Attendee Resource Center. Attendees will have access before, during and after the show. We understand some information should not be made available online. You can edit your PowerPoint and save as a PDF version without any slides you don't want attendees to have access to.

For PowerPoints, to save as a PDF please do the following so speaker PDFs are consistent:

1. Select File and Save As
2. Save as type: PDF 
3. Then select Options (which appears under "Save as type")
4. Under Publish What, select Handouts
5. Slides per page: 1
6. IMPORTANT: Now under Publish What, select Slides (Slides per page should still appear as 1)
7. Select OK and Save
8. Upload PDF here

Here is an example of the Attendee Resource Center from last year.
