Thank you for considering to speak at SMX Munich!
Kindly read the following information on the speaker application process for SMX Munich 2023.
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.
Be HandsOn: Your proposal should be as specific as possible. With few exceptions, SMX sessions are tactical and contain actionable information. If the participants are looking forward to implementing what they have learned directly after your session, then you are on the right track.
A few more important points before you submit your pitch:
- No sales pitch! Attendees come to the conference to learn, not to hear about what you sell. If you would like to present you company or your services, then please have a look at our sponsoring options.
- If you’re accepted, you’ll receive a full two day SMX Munich pass, including speaker’s dinner on March 14, the SMX After Dark Networking event on March 15 and lots of promotional love.
- There is no fee to submit an idea or a speaking pitch, nor do we pay any session speakers to present at SMX. Please note that we unfortunately can’t cover any T&E.
- If the application is not submitted by a potential speaker himself but by an agency, assistant or PR department, for example, the contact details of both the submitter and the proposed person must be provided. The submitter must ensure that it is entitled to propose the speaker and that he/she is informed about the conditions mentioned here.
Please have a look at our detailed speaker submissions conditions.
Deadline for submissions is October 31, 2022 and you will hear from us between October and December 2022 at the latest. If we are convinced that your topic and you are a perfect fit you might hear from us sooner. It’s definitely an advantage to submit early to ensure that “your” topic is not taken already.
We look forward to hearing from you!</>
