While MarTech San Francisco is only a little more than a month away — reminder: the early bird “beta rate” for tickets expires at the end of this week! — we’re already on to planning MarTech Boston for this fall, October 2-4, 2017.
Spring is a beautiful time in San Francisco, and Boston is a spectacular time in the fall. I’m not saying we planned these events around seasonal splendor and great weather — availability of venues probably had more to do with it — but it’s certainly a happy coincidence.
But I digress…
As we program this next event, we’re eager to hear suggestions from the community for speakers and topics that will help marketers thrive at the fascinating intersection of marketing, technology, and management. So we’ve opened a call-for-speakers application form, and we invite you to pitch us a really compelling presentation that you’re passionate about delivering.
Most presentations will be 20-minute TED-style talks (with slides) delivered by either a solo speaker or a duo of speakers. Please propose your session with that level of depth in mind — you’ll want to be really focused. In a few cases, we may consider a panel discussion or an extended 45-minute presentation instead.
We’re looking for session proposals that are “graduate level” in nature — not Digital Marketing 101 — where a speaker will be able to authoritatively teach our advanced audience something new and meaningful from a vendor-neutral perspective. Vendors: your best chance for speaking in the editorial program is to secure a brand-name customer who is willing to co-present with you. Please include that brand co-presenter in your submission.
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
We’re looking forward to reading your suggestions — the deadline is May 13 — thank you!
