Hotel Information
Please see the link above if you need to reserve hotel accommodations for the conference. SHRM-Atlanta does not cover any speaker expenses or pay any speaking fees. 

Registration Instructions

All speakers, co-presenters and panelists receive a complimentary registration to the full two day conference. We will register all of our confirmed speakers so you do not need to register yourself or your co-presenter for the conference. We encourage all speakers to attend both days and network with the attendees, attend other sessions and visit the exhibit hall. As a speaker you are entitled to all benefits of a regular full conference paid attendee.

Session Logistics

When you arrive onsite, please check in at the registration kiosks. The staff at the desk will be able to direct you to your session room. Please allow plenty of time to arrive onsite. Atlanta traffic can cause delays at any time of the day, so please plan on arriving at least 30 minutes prior to your session start time. 

We will have a Speaker Ready Room in Room 111. This room can be used to prepare for your presentation or to step away from the activities of the conference for a bit. This room will remain open at all times so please do not leave any personal belongings or valuables in the room. 

We will be providing in each session room a laptop, an LCD projector, screen, wireless presentation remote and microphone with sound system. Each presenter will be asked to bring their presentation on a USB as a back-up.

If you are planning on bringing any handouts for your session, please anticipate 75 - 100 people per session (if you are in a mega-session room, please bring up to 250). This is a guesstimate of the number of attendees so please bring what you feel is appropriate. 

Attire for the conference is business casual.

We will also be providing the opportunity for you to sell/sign books in the exhibit hall on either day of the conference. You are allowed to sign-up for 1 hour time slots. Please note, you will need to handle all logistics on your own (getting the books there and collecting payments, etc.). If you are interested in this opportunity, please email Tara Zeravsky at tzeravsky@shrmatlanta.org to reserve your date and time.
