Speaker Information

Thank you for agreeing to speak at the PHCA 2019 Convention and Tradeshow to be held September 24-26 at the Valley Forge Casino Resort, 1160 First Avenue, King of Prussia, PA. Below is some information to assist you in your preparation for your session.


Due to Wendy Johnson on or before Friday, September 6 in either PowerPoint or Word format. This deadline is firm as we will be making the electronic handouts available to attendees prior to the convention in an effort to remain “green”, and they will be made available on the convention mobile app. Hard copy handouts will not be provided to attendees at the convention. Attendees find handouts very useful and like to have them made available.

Convention Mobile App

The convention mobile app will be made available to Speakers, Attendees, and Exhibitors right after Labor Day.  You will receive an email when it is available with instructions on how to download the app and how to update your profile on the app.  The information will also be in the Convention Mobile App section of this website.

Overnight Hotel Reservations

In an effort to keep registration fees as affordable as possible for our attendees in tough economic times, we are asking speakers to make their own overnight accommodation reservations.  To receive the PHCA negotiated overnight room rate of $127/night plus 6% sales and 2% occupancy tax, please make your online reservation here or by calling the Radisson at 800-333-3333 or the Casino Tower at 800-596-0341 and mention the PHCA Convention room block. Please make your hotel reservation as soon as possible as the hotel will sell out. Parking at the Valley Forge Casino Resort is free and plentiful.

Convention Registration

Your complimentary speaker registration includes breakfast and lunch plus attendance at any of the other scheduled educational sessions throughout the convention. Please register here and select Speaker under Registration Type.

A/V Needs

PHCA will provide a wireless microphone, projection scree and LCD panel. Please have your presentation loaded on your laptop as PHCA does not have enough extra laptops for each session room. The LCD panel will be attached to your laptop using VGA or HDMI cable. Please let us know if your laptop does not have a VGA or standard HDMI post or if your laptop is an Apple computer so we can ensure we have the proper connectors. If you have any other A/V needs, please notify Wendy Johnson at wjohnson@phca.org no later than Friday, August 30.
