Presentation Templates

Traditionally the conference has used 4:3 aspect ration slides due to screen and projector availability. Either aspect ratio is satisfactory and both have been used in the past. 16:9 displayed on a 4:3 screen has black bands at top and bottom; the "letterbox" effect. Accordingly templates for both aspect ratios are downloadable below.

Presentation TIPS

The conference proceedings are an integral part of the event, which attendees take back to their organizations to use as a reference.  It is crucial that we receive your material by the deadline to ensure complete and well-organized conference proceedings web site.

Presentation Preparation:

  • For easy identification, we ask that you include a cover page with full contact information and number all slides.
  • Presentation templates for the 2017 Storage Visions Conference are available at the conference web site at
  • The Storage Visions Conference does not permit the use of company marketing information in your presentation.  Feedback from our attendees strongly indicates a negative reaction to "sales pitches".
  • Use a large font type at least 18 point so that attendees in the back of the room can easily read the print.
  • Do not put a lot of text on one slide.  Try to use bullets, keep your thoughts concise.  Leave at least one space between each line and try to keep a slide to 4 lines or less.
  • Create all slides in a consistent manner.  Do not mix horizontal and vertical slides.
  • Use colors that are easy to see and easy for people to read text.  The best colors for text are black, yellow, white, and orange.  Do not use red, magenta, purple, green or light blue/cyan.
  • Stay within your allotted time. Usually 10 minutes. It is disrespectful to the moderator and other speakers to run overlong.
  • The 2017 Storage Visions Conference sessions will be attended by press representatives.  According to press procedures, any comments you make from the podium can be quoted or used as background for an article.  We encourage press attendees to confer with speakers for confirmation, although we have no control over their reporting.
