How Does My Company Participate?
Sign up to provide Learning Lab session(s) through the ACP store. Select your preferences regarding date and time slots, title of session, and speaker. Deadline for submission is: November 1. The MAC staff will follow-up with you and confirm all details by mid-December.

Can My Company Offer More Than One Session?
Absolutely! MAC reserves the right to create a schedule that is diverse in content, skill, and presenters. But, companies are encouraged to think creatively and propose more than one Learning Lab opportunity. Companies are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis in consultation with MAC staff.

What Is the Set-Up of the Learning Lab?
The Learning Lab is a designated space in the rear of the Exhibit Hall. It will have theater style seating, a low-profile stage, screen, LCD projector, microphone, and speakers. In the rear space of the Learning Lab will be round tables and chairs.

How Does the Format Work?
It is expected that MAC participants will come and go from the space freely. Creative sessions are encouraged; high participant engagement will increase the length of time participations will stay in the Learning Lab and the Exhibit Hall. Handouts or distribution of material is encouraged.
