Become an IDEA User Conference Speaker

The IDEA User Conference provides a great opportunity to share your experience, tips and techniques with fellow users. We are interested in creative, compelling and thought-provoking topics across all industries. Conference presentation options include 4-hour pre- or post-conference workshops, and 50-, or 75-minute breakout sessions.  Each session should include an interactive discussion of the topic, practical applications and 10-15 minutes of Q&A.

We will be offering a virtual attendance option at the conference. Conference sessions will be recorded and simulcast to the virtual audience. In addition to the breakout sessions, we are also looking for speakers interested in sitting on a panel, or leading a round table session.
