NOW ACCEPTING SPEAKER APPLICATIONS
For our 2018 Vermont, Maine, and Rhode Island Conventions
Have a content session idea for New England cannabis business professionals or medical marijuana patients? We are now accepting submissions for our 2018 conventions in Vermont, Maine and Rhode Island (programming for the Boston convention has been posted here and no other submissions for Boston will be reviewed at this time). To be considered for a speaking spot at the largest industry convention series in the Northeast, complete the form below.
Selected speakers will include those who have spoken at cannabis events in the past and those who have not, and who come from a diverse range of geographic areas. We are looking specifically for content relevant to the industry, consumers, and patients of the home state of each convention. Preference will be given to sessions that have not been presented in these markets before.
Solo presentations should last between 30-45 minutes (depending on the topic and structure of the session), followed by Q&A from the audience. We’re also include some panel style sessions and may ask that you alter your presentation to fit a different style. Speakers MUST abide by a “no pitching” policy. Presentations can not include information on speaker’s professional background, personal expertise and/or company history.
Selected speakers will be informed of their selection by January 30, 2018. Selected speakers must agree to follow specific guidelines on crafting their presentations and compiling PowerPoint presentations. NECANN reserves the right of final approval on all content for speakers, and may require revisions during the process.
Important notes before beginning to fill out the form:
If you wish to apply for multiple conventions you must submit a separate form for each one. It might be helpful to write out the longer answers on a Word doc first so you can cut and paste them into each submission.
Submissions with not be accepted without a bio and head shot, so make sure you have them before starting the form.
This form is the ONLY method we will use for considering speakers. If you have questions regarding the form, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, but please don’t call/email with speaker inquires/pitches.
