Types of Presentations

Several types of presentations will be available at the Symposium, each with a different time allotment depending on the depth of material.

A list of sessions will be available by September 4 when online registration is available.

Poster Presentations

  • Posters will be displayed in a common area in the Exhibit Hall throughout the Symposium.
  • 5 minute presentation opportunity to share your "story" and to meet with interested attendees at designated times during the Symposium.
  • Presenters should attend the Symposium and are responsible for the shipping, construction, and assembling of their own posters on site.
  • Shipping information will be provided to you upon acceptance.


  • An entire track of compact sessions that explore today’s hottest trail topics in highly engaging sessions.
  • Modeled after the now famous TEDx sessions, our program committee will work closely with TRAILx presenters to craft exciting and provocative 20-30 minute sessions.
  • Sessions will be video taped and made available to the public, greatly expanding your potential audience.

Trail Talks

(a.k.a. Breakfast with an Expert)

  • Presenters convene at a reserved and designated topic table and facilitate a 60 minute informal discussion and exchange of ideas during the Continental Breakfast provided each morning.
  • No A/V is available at these informal conversations.

Core Tracks

  • 3 hour sessions (including breaks).
  • Explore subjects in greater depth than is possible in other sessions (ideal for the Trails Training Institute).
  • If you’d like an outdoor field experience, consider pairing a Concurrent Session with an outdoor component in the form of a Core Track to maximize the learning potential.
