NECANN Oklahoma Cannabis Convention - Speaker Proposal Application
1) SUBMITTING THIS FORM IS THE ONLY WAY TO APPLY FOR A SPEAKER SPOT. Email/phone solicitations will not be considered
2) AGENTS AND PR FIRMS: Applications MUST include direct contact info (email address and phone number) for the person applying to present, and the speaker must be willing and able to communicate directly with NECANN staff to arrange details.
3) Due to the high volume of submissions, only those selected to speak will receive notification via email, typically no later than 10 weeks prior to the event. Communication will be sent directly to the speakers only.
Selected speakers for each convention 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, business, consumers, growers, advocates, and patients in Oklahoma. Preference will be given to sessions that have not been presented in these markets before.
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.
NECANN reserves the right of final approval on all content for speakers, and may require revisions during the process.
Please note that NECANN does not provide speaker stipends or travel reimbursements. This helps us keep ticket prices low and accessible to the broadest audience for the event and your session.
Submissions with not be accepted without a bio, so make sure you have them before starting the form. 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.
All of our conventions are focused on the cannabis markets they held are in, including the programming. For example if you wanted to speak about marketing, the submission should at least in part speak to marketing strategies that relate to current Oklahoma laws and regulations on cannabis advertising.
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.
