Present Onstage at MarketingSherpa Summit 2018: Fill out the 10-minute application below
Share your customer-first marketing story with your peers before the official call closes on September 12, 2017.
Have you learned a great lesson through your marketing efforts this year? This is your opportunity to share your transferable principles at MarketingSherpa Summit 2018, held at the ARIA Resort and Casino in Las Vegas (May 7-10).
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 customer-first 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.
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:
Our audience deserves the very best possible experience, so we do ask a lot from our speakers but our team will be there to support you every step of the way. 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.

If I am an agency/vendor (not a brand-side marketer), how can I get involved?You can apply on behalf of a client for a case study. (Please get that client’s approval beforehand.) You can also propose to co-present alongside a brandside marketer or submit an "Other Ideas" application. However, brand-side marketers presenting on their own are given preference.
