The Northeast Business & Economics Association is excited to host its 47th Annual Conference at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire from November 12-14, 2020. 

To help you make plans, the conference starts on Thursday, November 12, when there will be a welcome reception and registration in the early evening at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel. There will be no breakout sessions on Thursday. On Friday, November 13, there will be breakfast and then breakout sessions will run all day starting at about 8 am and accompanied by lunch and an evening reception. Saturday, November 14, will bring breakfast which will then be followed by breakout sessions.

If your paper has been accepted, please read the conference instructions here.  You can download the Proceedings formatting instructions here.

For your assistance, here are some tips for authors to help you present. Each room will have a laptop and projector for you to present your paper. It is suggested that you make Powerpoint or PDF slide show and bring your presentation on a thumbdrive and copy your file to the laptop before the session starts. Most authors email the paper to themselves as a backup.  You will not be able to make edits to your paper on the fly as the laptops have viewers, not full installations of Microsoft Office or Abobe Acrobat. You might be able to use some other format, but life might be much more complicated if you try to use Latex or Prezi or some Apple format. The best bet for your file format is PDF or Powerpoint. You can open Word and Excel as well. 

The laptops will be connected to the internet, but sometimes hotels have spotty internet access so please do not expect 100% connectivity. Bring a thumb drive.  There are some clickers for the projectors but sometimes these get lost. Please remember that simple is best. Not every laptop will have speakers so if audio is a vital part of your presentation, start to prepare early.  And remember that you are part of a session that will include three or four other presenters. In order to keep to the schedule, plan on taking up only the time allotted to you. We look forward to seeing you and are excited about being in beautiful Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
