Submit Your MarTech® Speaking Pitch

Thank you for your interest in presenting at MarTech! Our next conference will take place in San Jose, CA on April 23-25, 2018, and that event’s pitch form is now open. Please read on to get a better understanding of what we’re looking for in regards to submissions.

Content: 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.

Format: Most presentations will be 20-minute TED-style talks (accompanied by PowerPoint presentations) delivered by either a solo speaker or two 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.

A Word On Selling: 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 this 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.

This event’s deadline for speaking pitches is December 7, 2017. We will not be accepting additional pitches after this date.

We carefully review all ideas that are submitted. However, there are always more great ideas suggested than we have agenda slots available — 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.

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 session speakers to present at MarTech.
