SMX® Speaking Pitch Form

Want to speak at SMX Advanced? This form allows you to pitch your session ideas for our agenda. If we really like a session idea, we may use it as it I or we develop a session title and description based on your suggestion. This may be for a solo session (usually 20 or 40 minutes) or for a Deep Dive session (usually 45 -60 minutes, Deep Dives are mini workshops within in the conference).


IMPORTANT: Submissions must come directly from the person making the pitch, in their name, with their email address.

If you’re a PR person or firm, you can work with the potential speaker to help craft the submission. You can only fill out the form on their behalf, as long as they have reviewed the submission. Also, we want to contact the potential speaker directly in case he or she is considered.

We are a pitch free, vendor neutral event. If you have a product or services to sell, please don’t submit a speaking pitch form but talk to our sales team. We have a limited number of great sponsoring opportunities that allow you to discuss your offerings with our attendees in a very effective way.

Deadline for submissions is April 1, 2020

You’ll be notified as to whether you’ve been accepted a few weeks later.

If you’re accepted to speak, you’ll receive a SMX Advanced ticket including the dinner and after party. Fees, travel and accommodation are not provided.

Hints & Tips for Writing Your Abstract

Imagine yourself an attendee sitting in the audience when you give your presentation. What would you like to hear (or not)? What would make a positive impression and make you feel your time well-spent? Consider those questions carefully when you write your abstract.

For starters two quick rules: Don’t be commercial, and don’t overuse buzzwords. Both will lessen your chances of being accepted.

Say enough, but don’t say too much. One sentence – or a list of bullets – is definitely not enough. More than 100 words is usually too much. Express your message fully but succinctly.
