Be interactive, use case studies and add value
Sessions which involve audience participation, case studies and Q&A time will be given greater consideration.
We are particularly interested in hearing from speakers who speak on proven strategies and are looking to share knowledge.
Depending on the topic and perceived demand you will be speaking in a room of between 150 and 800 delegates.
We are looking for advanced sessions on the latest topics in performance marketing; please state clearly your pitch level.
Whilst we appreciate it is a few months until the conference and that the direction of your session could change, it is important to be as specific as possible at this stage.
Please include suggested session titles and descriptions as you wish them to appear on the website and conference programme as well as a brief explanation of your topic and why you feel it would be of value to our international audience.
Suggest a full panel
Help us to help you by putting together a complete panel or case study to present at the conference. Sessions generally run for around 50 minutes; you may wish to consider bringing in other experts or clients within the field to share the speaking responsibility and provide a more interesting and interactive experience for our delegates.
Don't make a sales pitch
Although speaking at our conference will help build awareness of and credibility for your company – it is commercial suicide as far as we and your audience are concerned to conduct a hard sell. The advisory board views all of the session videos, which may result in you being banned from future conferences. This may seem harsh, but our delegates expect more.
Don't rehash old content
Topics must be fresh, thought provoking, educational, and possibly provocative. We are looking for real case studies, results of research; unique content and take away strategies for our audience.
