Each speaker page needs these images and text. Some other items are optional, like downloadable files and links.

What content looks like

Before users open a speaker page, they might see the speaker featured in a rotator, grid, or list module. It displays the speaker’s image, name and abstract.

Modules can look different depending on their configuration. Learn more about modules.

Users can also find speakers on the session page where they’re speaking. The speaker’s image and name are displayed at the bottom of the page. Selecting the image opens a quick preview of the speaker, which displays their abstract and description.
