The DesignColumbus Planning Committee is seeking education programs that highlight new technologies, regional issues, high-profile projects and enhance the knowledge of our participants about design, construction and operational practices that promote green building.
In an effort to promote new and diverse groups of presenters, strong preference will be given to presenters who did not present at the previous year’s conference or whose content is relevant to the regional audience. Acceptable presentation modalities include panel discussions, roundtables, project profile/case studies, interactive lectures, or group activity. No sessions that are based upon an advertisement, product or service will be accepted into the program.
The presenters for each session selected to be part of DesignColumbus 2020 will receive a complimentary registration to the conference with lunch provided.
Equipment provided: Each presentation room will be equipped with a microphone, projector and screen.
What to bring: Presenters will need to bring their own laptop (and cables if using a Mac), presentation and handouts (if desired).
Advertising of presentation topics: Advertising of selected topics will be done throughout the five states in the Heartland and Great Lakes Region: Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky.
