Marketing Conference Call for Speakers

Goals

To obtain a list of conferences and events in the marketing sector that are seeking speakers.

Early Findings

A thorough review of the suggested association websites and standalone events resulted in only three events that currently have open applications for speakers. Each has been entered into the attached spreadsheet.
  • The Association of Women in Communications is currently calling for speakers for its 2020 Know to Grow Professional Development series. The series is presented via webinar on the fourth Thursday of every month.
  • Similarly, the Atlanta chapter of the International Assocation of Business Communicators hosts a networking event and speaker series on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
  • The Public Relations Society of America will be hosting their International Conference on October 25-27, 2020 in Nashville, TN. The deadline for the speaker application is March 15, 2020.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
During our initial research we reviewed the suggested associations' event calendars for conferences and events calling for speakers, with minimal results. Therefore, we propose further research to identify 4-5 financial services marketing events, including conferences, seminars, and speaking series in 2020 that are currently calling for speakers. We will enter each event into the attached spreadsheet and include the name of the event, website, sponsoring association, brief event overview, date, location, and link to the speaker application form.
Our initial research indicates that many of the conferences/events scheduled for 2020 have already closed applications for speakers. Therefore, we propose further research to identify 5-7 financial services marketing conferences in 2021 that are currently calling for speakers. We will enter each event into the attached spreadsheet and include the name of the event, website, sponsoring association, brief event overview, date, location, and link to the speaker application form.
