PRODUCT THEATERS

Product Theaters offer the unique opportunity to attend a short session to learn about specific products/services of interest in the comfort of a private, seated environment. These sessions are meant to be promotional and do not offer any educational credit. Our exhibitors have been offered the opportunity to host one of the many Product Theaters taking place outside of the exhibit hall.  Be sure to keep your schedule open for another year of exciting Product Theaters that will offer either a continetal breakfast or wine & cheese!

SPEAKER PRESENTATIONS/HANDOUTS

DNA will post all available speaker presentations online prior to the convention. Attendees will be e-mailed a link to access the presentations prior to the start of convention.
