PowerPoint Instructions
  • Please use the Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2007, 2010 or 2013* (*.ppt) or (*pptx), or Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) to guarantee they will open successfully on an on-site PC.
  • We recommend you to save your PowerPoint presentation using PPT(X) format instead of PPS.
  • Please note that we cannot guarantee the quality of MacIntosh-based presentations, please check in advance (2 hours before your session starts) their Windows compatibility.
  • Please prepare your presentation in 16:9 format (screens are in 16:9 aspect).
Pictures/Videos
  • JPG images are the preferred file format for inserted images. GIF, TIF or BMP formats will be accepted as well.
  • Images inserted into PowerPoint are embedded into the presentations. Images that are created at a dpi setting higher than 200 dpi are not necessary and will only increase the file size of your presentation. Try to avoid overloading your presentation with unnecessary images.
  • In case you have any videos in your presentation - please test your presentation with the on-site PC several hours before your presentation. Generally, the MPEG-1 and AVI format should work with no difficulties.
Fonts
  • Only fonts that are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows will be available (English version of Windows). Use of other fonts not included in Windows can cause the wrong layout / style of your presentation.
  • Suggested fonts: Arial, Times New Roman, Tahoma.
  • If you insist on using different fonts, these must be embedded into your presentation by choosing the right option when saving your presentation, see details below:
    • Click on „File“, then „Save As“
    • Check the „Tools“ menu and select „Embed True Type Fonts“

  • In case you are presenting more than one presentation during the event, save different presentations to different folders and name them clearly to avoid on-site misunderstandings and problems.
