Your guide to speaking at MarTech

Tips, topics, dates, and more

Thank you for your interest in presenting at MarTech! Please read on to get a better understanding of what we’re looking for in regard 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 30-45 minute talks accompanied by PowerPoint presentations, delivered by either a solo or two speakers. Please propose your session with that level of depth in mind. In a few cases, we may consider a panel discussion or a shorter 20-minute TED-style talk.

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.

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.
