Printed notebooks will not be distributed at this year’s conference. PowerPoint presentations, as well as supplemental session materials, will be available to attendees electronically approximately one week before the conference begins. We will provide wireless Internet access during conference sessions so you can access the conference materials through your laptop computer or tablet. Materials may be downloaded as individual sessions or as a single electronic version of the conference binder, which is viewable on your iPad, Kindle, or tablet.
We are also excited to offer our first-ever mobile app for this year’s Tax and Accounting Conference attendees. The app will give you the ability to view a wide variety of information about the conference, including general logistics, speaker information, schedule details, and session presentations. Downloading and installing the mobile app is easy and free for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), Android, and BlackBerry devices. More information about how to download the app will be available in September.
