Speaker Submission Guidelines
Thank you for your interest in ShiftCon Eco-Wellness Influencer Conference. This is the ONLY conference housing green/wellness/lifestyle/foodie influencers under one roof for a mission-based purpose–to change the grocery store aisle. Our conference staff spends time researching and seeking out proposals from industry thought leaders. At the end of our proposal window we finalize the list and reach out to speakers. This selection process is based on themes chosen for each event that reflect content goals supporting our mission. Please note that influencers need your A-game. We receive a very large volume of potential speaker proposals each year. Due to this volume of submissions, we are not able to accept everyone. Please note some rules below.
- Speakers, organizations, influencers & PR can submit any number of proposals during the proposal acceptance timeline. Choosing from a large number of submitted proposals is difficult with so many quality submissions. We evaluate each one based on 1. What the bloggers will benefit from and 2. What reflects our mission.
- If you are chosen, you will be contacted by our staff. If your proposal is rejected, you will be contacted at the end of our process.
- Sponsorship does not guarantee involvement in our educational programming; however, does not exclude your organization from involvement should the opportunity arise and your expertise match our audience needs.
Due to volume, any proposals sent to individual emails outside of the proposal process may not be answered.
Our primary audience consists of influencers who write about food, parenting, fitness, safer products, lifestyle, body image & technology. There are also a smaller group of non-profits, brands and other members of traditional press.
Visual presentations are required to be submitted to the Speaker Coordinator prior to the conference. Each session will be given a generic power point slide with ShiftCon branding.
- Please also bring your power point presentation on a thumb drive just in case.
- If you prefer to use your own Mac, it will be your responsibility to bring the correct adapter.
