Wanted: Session Ideas For SMX East


Do you have a topic you’d like to see covered in a session at SMX East on October 2-4, 2012? 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.

Anyone can submit a session idea for an SMX conference, even if you’re not interested in actually speaking at the show. Just tell us the name of a suggested session, a description of what you’d like the session to cover and your contact information, if you like. Contact details aren’t required, but they help in case we have follow-up questions.

Interested in speaking on a session you suggest? You can indicate this by ticking the “I’d Like To Speak” box to let us know. However, in most cases, you’ll need to put in a formal pitch after the final agenda is posted using our separate speaking pitch form. This form will only be active once an agenda has been finalized.

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 ideas for sessions where a single individual would speak for an entire session. And also please remember, no product or service pitches.
