Thank you for your interest in presenting at the MarTech Conference in San Jose, April 23-24, 2018. We’re eager to hear suggestions from the community for speakers and topics that will help marketers thrive at the exciting intersection of marketing, technology, and management.

The pitch form will open below on September 21. Meanwhile, please read on to get a better understanding of what we’ll be looking for then.

Most presentations will be 20-minute TED-style talks (with slides) delivered by either a solo speaker or a duo of speakers. Please propose your session with that level of depth in mind — you want to be really focused. In a few cases, we may consider a panel discussion or give an extended 45-minute presentation instead.

The deadline for all MarTech West 2018 speaking pitches is December 7, 2017. We will not be accepting additional pitches after this date.

We’re looking for session proposals that are “graduate level” in nature — not Digital Marketing 101 — where a speaker will be able to authoritatively teach our advanced audience something new and meaningful from a vendor-neutral perspective. Vendors: your best chance for speaking in the editorial program is to secure a brand-name customer who is willing to co-present with you. Please include that brand co-presenter in your submission.

Here are the key subject areas that we are looking to address in the agenda, but we are also open to your suggestions that fit “outside the box”:

  • Marketing & Artificial Intelligence
  • Marketing Data & Analytics
  • The Convergence of Adtech & Martech
  • Martech Architecture & Operations
  • Martech-Enabled Strategy
  • Agile & Lean Martech Management
  • Emerging Martech: AR/VR and IoT
  • The Human Side of Martech

There is no fee to submit a pitch, nor do we pay any speakers to present at MarTech conferences.

Note: Unless denoted as optional, all items above are required to process your submission.
