Alt 2013 Call for Speakers Guidelines

The Alt 2013 Call for Speakers is officially open! We can't wait to hear what YOU want to hear. What topics would you like to see covered? Who would you like to hear speak? Have an idea for a panel you'd like to speak on? We want to hear it all.

What We're Looking For

Alt Summit panels and speakers have a reputation for being A++. Thoroughly prepared, beautiful images, useable takeaways, engaging discussions. Plus general brilliance. No pressure.

Though it's not required, priority may be given to pitches from speaker applicants that have attended Alt Summit in earlier years since they've seen first hand the level of presentation attendees expect.

We hope you'll take a look at last year's schedule to get an idea of the kind of topics that are covered at Alt Summit.

Please Note

Alt Summit speakers receive a complimentary full registration. But, with the exception of keynote speakers, hotel, airfare and travel expenses are not covered.

And no worries, if you register as an attendee, and then get invited to speak at Alt Summit, your registration costs will be promptly reimbursed.

How to Submit

Please send (in the body of an email, not as an attachment):

- The topic idea, and a couple sentences about the topic, if it's not self-explanatory

- Possible fellow panelists that could speak about the topic with authority

- Optional: other topics you have an expertise in

- Please email the information to:

One Last Thing

If you're asked to speak, the topic you suggest may not be what you're asked to speak on (and you may not be asked to speak with the panelists you suggest). Sorry about that! By sending a pitch, we're assuming you're interested in speaking at Alt Summit in general. And if we have another panel that you're well qualified for, we might place you there instead. You'll, of course, have the chance to say yay or nay to whatever we propose. Thanks for being flexible!

Thank you so much for your interest in speaking at Alt Summit -- or suggesting a speaker/topic! We can't wait to hear what you have in mind.
