2024 Speaking Opportunities (Call for speakers!) - Retail Innovation Conference & Expo

Speaking Opportunities

The 2024 Call For Speakers Is Now Live

Are you helping drive change in the ever-evolving ecommerce landscape? Are you disrupting traditional commerce models or reinventing the omnichannel experience? We want to hear from you!

What we're looking for

Diverse voices encouraged to apply

Societal blind spots and biases have led to disparities across every industry. As part of a growing commitment to dispel these gaps within the retail industry, we are intentionally broadening our speaking faculty. Our goal for the Retail Innovation Conference & Expo is to create an environment that provides equal access and opportunities for all. We want to amplify the stories and experiences of BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) retailers, brands and executives. We also encourage submissions from racial, gender, sexual identity and ethnic minority, and people with disabilities to use our platforms across all channels.

What we don't want

This is a promo-free zone. Please refrain from suggesting dated topics based on case studies that are more than a year old, recycling content that has been presented before, or using vendor solution-oriented topics that focus on how a specific vendor solution will solve a problem. Speaker decks are reviewed in advance to ensure promotional content is not present. Speakers and vendors who abuse our policies will not be invited back.

Note: While we are keeping this form open year-round, you must submit your proposal by January 22, 2024 to be considered for the 2024 event.

Our team reviews submissions as they come in but cannot reply to all of them due to the volume. Thank you for your interest and please do keep an eye on your inbox!
