Now Accepting Session Pitches For SMX West

Do you have a topic you’d like to see covered in a session at SMX West on March 8-10, 2011? 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 December 20th.

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.

Key milestones for SMX West

Again, the pitch form is for session ideas only. We will open up a separate pitch form for people to apply to speak on specific panels once the agenda is posted.

  • Session pitches open November 15, close December 10
  • Agenda posted & speaking pitches open week of December 20th
  • Speaking pitches close January 20

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 December 10.
