Used to add information about upcoming or past conferences; the display dynamically changes when the conference end date is in the past (for example the location will remain, but the address is removed). To add a conference, select “Content ⇒ Add content ⇒ Conference” from the admin toolbar.

Note that the ‘Speaker(s)’ field is an entity reference field from which nodes of the ‘Conference speaker’ content type can be selected. An autocomplete, look-ahead field, the system will present you with a list of items which match what you have entered as you type. For this reasons, the conference speaker nodes should be created prior to creating the conference node on which the ‘Speaker(s)’ field relies.
