The Summit. In the Summer. In Seattle.

Our Unique Value

No other conference on the planet shines a spotlight this bright and this strong on the presentation experience.

Breadth

Creating successful presentations is about more than just software. It is about crafting sharp messages, creating intelligent presentation design, employing smart PowerPoint techniques, and developing comfort before an audience. The Presentation Summit offers all of this at levels you won’t find anywhere else.

Depth

We deliver insight, inspiration, and community to create a conference experience that you will remember forever. Our breadth of coverage, depth of expertise, willingness to help, and passion for creating engagement all add up to a business conference that is completely unlike any other you will attend.

Scope

Spend three days with us and never look at a presentation project the same way again. Three days and immediately distinguish yourself from 99% of the people creating or delivering presentations today.

New for 2019:
Certification Prep!

As our industry evolves and matures, so does the need to demonstrate proficiency and value to organizations that seek to employ or hire you. The Presentation Guild is taking a leadership position in this growing opportunity and is introducing Professional Certifications, a set of tests to enable you to demonstrate your knowledge and acumen and earn a credential for them.

The Presentation Summit is partnering with the Guild to offer this unique opportunity to prepare for and help you pass the Certified Presentation Specialist Test. Our Certification Prep Workshop will take place the day before the conference begins, Sat, Oct 5, at our conference venue. Those who want to earn their stripes in the presentation profession need only come in one day early and sign up. For complete details on the workshop, visit our Cert Prep page.

From the host

What strikes me most is the sheer amount of resources I was able to add to my personal toolkit. How could I not have realized these were available in the 15 years I've been in sales and marketing? Talk about an "ah ha" moment!

It was incredible to find my people. The energy, enthusiasm, and operational excellence have fostered a wonderful community. I can't say enough about the interactions I had and what I learned from my colleagues.

I really appreciate the cross-section of experts. Each speaker delivered value and we all walked away with key learning nuggets. The Help Center is a great concept, as well, and I was able to resolve a significant problem with PowerPoint. Well organized and well executed.

I really appreciate the Presentation Summit, having gone straight to another conference afterward. This one is huge and impersonal. At the Summit, I learn from real people in the trenches, and I appreciate that much more now, having seen the alternative.

I learned so much, I met people who speak the same language as I, from a design and build point of view in PowerPoint, and who get it. The tips and tricks have been lifesaving and the Microsoft guys were so insightful and willing to help. Thank you for this amazing conference!

I leave with more than network connections, I leave the conference with new friends. I also leave with more than my company's money's worth of tips, tricks, best practices, and new approach. The number of attendees whose name tags showed that they have attended seven, eight, nine times already. Wow, what a testimony to value and positive experience.

I was blown away by all the information and so many break-out sessions you had. I loved the 20-minute speed seminars. They all inspired me to do more. Don't they say that teachers make the best students?
