There should be a list of talks prepared for each section (and a viewgraph made for each section). There should also be an introduction to the section and the speakers (to be made by the chair of the section).
We've been using Sandy Margolin (SJ Margolin Sound, Lights...) for as
long as I know. He is rather expensive (we paid $3500 all-in for his services
last time), but the argument goes that we need top-flight audio equipment
for this workshop. I don't think we can fault the audio presentation, but
there were a couple of problems on the visual side this time. Most importantly,
a couple of participants wanted to use PowerPoint slides directly from their
PC, but we didn't have the capacity to provide video projection for computer
output (only for TV-quality video tapes). Sandy said that if we had warned
him earlier, he would have been able to get hold of the necessary equipment.
Secondly, it seemed like the slide projector we had (some kind of mercury
vapor device?) was not terribly sucessful - basically, not bright enough.
I can't imagine that would happen again, but it's something to watch out
