A Guide To Speaking At MarTech
Interested in speaking at a MarTech conference? For each MarTech event, we open up a public call-for-speakers. If you have a topic that you would like to present, we encourage you to suggest it to us. We carefully review all ideas that are submitted. However, there are always more great ideas suggested than we have slots available in our agenda to include — so please understand if we’re not able to include yours in the program. We always keep great ideas and presenters in mind for future opportunities.
The speaker suggestions most likely to be accepted are those that tackle a meaningful topic at the intersection of marketing, technology, and management. We think of MarTech as a “graduate level” conference program — most attendees are already familiar with the basics of digital marketing and are looking to take their strategy and practice to the next level. We love presentation ideas that are targeted at that level. Also, while we love marketing technology vendors and service providers, our audience is extremely wary of being “sold to” under the guise of an educational session. If you’re a speaker affiliated with such a company, please note that the bar is very high to convince us that your presentation won’t be interpreted that way. The best way to counter that is to either suggest a brand-name customer to speak on your behalf or pitch a joint presentation with you and that customer both on the stage together.
We are no longer accepting speaker proposals for MarTech San Francisco. We will announce a call for speakers for MarTech Boston 2017 on this page in mid-March, 2017 – check back then for more details.
