Present Onstage at MarketingSherpa Summit 2017: Fill out the 10-minute application below
Share your story with more than 1,000 of your peers.
Have you learned a great lesson through your marketing efforts this year? This is your opportunity to share your transferable principles at MarketingSherpa Summit 2017, held at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas (April 10-13).
We want to showcase you onstage alongside fellow brand-side marketers.
Our MarketingSherpa moderators will work with you to share your case study and results with marketers who are eager to learn from your hard work, success and insights.
This is your chance to share your marketing success story and impact not only other companies’ efforts, but the industry as well.
All speakers selected to present onstage will get a free event ticket.
The deadline to apply is Friday, June 17, 2016 (11:59 p.m. EDT)
Benefits for You:
We're looking for the marketers and business leaders who work hard every day to find ways to better serve their customers and promote their brands. To celebrate these successes, those selected as speakers will receive:
- One complimentary ticket to MarketingSherpa Summit 2017
- Recognition on event website, promo materials, press releases, videos, articles and blog posts
- Entry of case study applicants into the 2017 MarketingSherpa Awards
Our audience deserves the very best possible experience, so we do ask a lot from our speakers. From one-on-one discussions with an expert moderator to help with crafting, refining and practicing the presentation, it’s an overall collaborative experience, starting months before the event takes place. The end result is helpful content for the audience, and you onstage at the beautiful Aria hotel delivering it.
