'''''A place to for those needing adapters and those having adapters to… connect'''''
+
  
Speakers will often need adapters to connect their devices to room projectors. Sometimes they won't have one that suits the setup at LCA.
+
Although not an official social event of the Conference, Birds of a Feather - or BoFs as they are known - allow Delegates to meet around a particular topic or interest. BoFs usually occur during lunchtime, or after the main Conference presentations for the day.  
Delegates often bring adapters with them to LCA. Sometimes they might be able to help out speakers who don't have the one they need.
+
  
If you've brought along (an) adapter(s) with you, please list them here along with the contact method you're most likely to be monitoring during the conference so that a speaker who needs it can contact you quickly.
