Now Accepting Session Pitches For SMX East NYC
Do you have a topic you’d like to see covered in a session at SMX East NYC on October 4-6, 2010? Something you’d like to see covered in depth, or a discussion of advanced strategies and tactics for getting the most out your search marketing campaigns? If so, we’d like to hear from you. Please head over to the SMX session pitch form and describe your idea(s) for sessions at the show. Please include:
- Proposed session title
- One paragraph description of the session
- Optional: Speakers who you think are most qualified for this panel
Note: At this point, we’re looking for session ideas, not individual speakers. We’ll put out a call for speakers when we post the agenda during the week of July 19.
Remember that all sessions at SMX usually feature 3-4 speakers with 10-15 minutes each of speaking time, so please make sure your idea will accommodate that format. We’re not interested in any pitches for sessions where a single individual would speak for an entire session. And also please remember, no product or service pitches.
Ready to pitch? Please use the SMX session pitch form, and do not email Danny or Chris. These days we work with a team of people to help coordinate speaker selection. We need a centralized online system to help manage that process so things don’t slip through the cracks. By far the most reliable way to express interest in speaking is to go through the system – email too often gets overlooked or lost.
And don’t delay—we’ll be closing the session pitch form on July 3.
