Have a content session idea for New England cannabis business professionals or medical marijuana patients?
Online applications for Portland, ME (October 6-7) and Providence, RI (October 20-21) will be accepted through July 31, 2018.
Selected speakers for each convention will be notified by August 17, 2018. Speakers will include both 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. To be considered for a speaking spot at the largest industry convention series in the Northeast, complete the form below.
Solo presentations are expected to be designed to last between 30-45 minutes (depending on the topic and structure of the session), followed by Q&A from the audience. We will also assemble 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 are meant to be educational and cannot include information on speaker’s professional background, personal expertise and/or company history.
Speakers who are selected 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.
TIP: 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.
TIP: Your session description should communicate the value that attendees will gain from listening to you. Remember our no-pitch policy, and tell us what people will learn from you during your session.
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.
