Saks will deliver Spark’s PowerPoint training seminar “Bulletproof Slideshows: Great presentation slides within and beyond PowerPoint” at the Exhibitor Show 2015.

Known as “ExhibitorLive!” and billed as “the smart ideas conference for exhibit and event marketers,” the Exhibitor Show is “the number one conference and expo for trade show and event marketing professionals from all industries at all experience levels.”

The Exhibitor Show will run at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from March 1-5, 2015. It features North America’s largest exhibition of trade show and event products and services, and over 180 comprehensive sessions and workshops.

“Bulletproof Slideshows” will help seminar participants build PowerPoint presentations with a clean, polished style that better serves their messages. The program covers these aspects of PowerPoint design:

how to avoid the PowerPoint design habits that turn off audiences
  • quick and easy steps to transform your current PowerPoint decks
  • practical pointers on incorporating words, images, graphs and lists
  • PowerPoint alternatives worth considering

The seminar will include a slideshow, workbook, discussion, sample PowerPoint decks, and critiques of participant PowerPoint presentations.

Saks will also facilitate a Peer2Peer Roundtable discussion at Exhibitor Live! on related presentation skills, and be featured in a signing session for his book, The Presentation Playbook: Be a Most Valuable Presenter.
