Our speaker committee will decide which sessions to place you on at our discretion. However, we will give priority to some submissions to select their session. If you are a professional service provider or vendor (such as law firm or consultant) or tech solution provider (like web services or software application), we encourage you to invite an end user client to speak with you.

For instance, if you are a law firm and have an attorney who wants to speak, you would invite your client to speak on the same panel. You can offer either on a panel or a case study showing the client's strategy and how you implemented your product or service.

Here is how this works: You have a client such as entertainment property or consumer brand. You advise us of the client; we approve them. You then invite them to speak either on a panel or case study. If they agree to speak; you can speak as well. There is no fee and you both receive a comp ticket.
