Call for Speakers 2021

Share your ideas, knowledge and experience!

This event takes place across three educational conferences with tracks in-person & online covering best practices providing actionable intelligence to fuel process improvement and market dominance. 


What does HYBRID mean for speakers?
The Manufacturing & Technology Show will be a hybrid event, meaning that some of the content will be live in person November 9-11, 2021 and some of the content will be only available in the virtual event hub.

As a speaker, the track which you are presenting in (see list below) will determine how your content is presented to the audience. Virtual-only speakers will have their sessions pre-recorded with our production team using a virtual conference recording, while in-person presentations will follow the typical conference model of working with our conference manager and showing up for your slotted time to present to the live audience in Cleveland. 

Why Hybrid?
Hybrid events allow for attendees, sponsors, and speakers to be involved in essential industry events at their own comfort level. The COVID-19 pandemic prompted many industry events to go online. We are confident that we will be able to host the in-person part of our event, but we want to make sure you can choose the level of involvement that you are comfortable with.
