A content committee will determine the programming for the conference. The committee will select presenters and panel participants based on their expertise and achievements.
There will be two types of speakers: Invited Speakers, who the committee selects based on their leadership, achievements, or expertise as published authors, and Industry Speakers, who are industry guests or sponsors supporting the publishing industry with products and services.
Invited Speaker Criteria: Invited speakers have demonstrated innovation and achievement in the publishing industry. They are bringing new ideas and learning to our attendees to help them level up. The content needs to be educational on the topic as agreed by the chair and provide 2-3 actionable, impactful items. You can collect emails as part of providing content or surveys. If you do have something to sell, you can’t pitch it during the show.
Industry Speaker Criteria: Industry speakers are selected from Industry Guests and Sponsors to speak on topics related to the programming tracks. You must provide 2-3 actionable, impactful items. You can collect emails as part of providing content or surveys. If you have a paid product, service or course, you can discuss the use and purchase of that product during your presentation. Preference will be given when there is a special offer for attendees.
