    EXPERTS (not investors)
    We feature keynotes, sponsored workshops, panel discussions, industry forecasts and projections, case studies, and high level networking with key industry influencers. Our speakers have fresh ideas, real-world strategies, and practical hands on tools. Some sessions are held jointly in the general session, and other sessions are in separate tracks. Most sessions are 30 minutes.


    Speakers are selected based on expertise, experience, customers and partnerships, and press exposure.

    We expect you to cover industry trends and issues; and to refrain from using the session to promote your own business or venture. We separately offer sponsored opportunities when you can promote your own project.

    For case studies, we require vendors to secure their client end user to co-present. For example, we had a law firm secure the head of marketing for a major food brand for a joint case study, and a mobile solution provider presented a case study with their client (a reputed brand). Contact us for approval; and if you are accepted both of you can speak.
