Submit Your Speaker Spotlights

There’s a seminal line in the 1989 movie “Field of Dreams”: “If you build it, he will come”. Maybe that works for baseball fields in the middle of farms – but it doesn’t work for presentations at technology conferences. If you’ve been selected to present at this year’s conference in St. Louis, you’re one of  100 selected from the pool of 360 submissions. And when your session is held, you’ll still have 9 other sessions competing with your presentation.

To put it bluntly: You need to tip the odds of attendance in your favor.

Do you want to be in the spotlight or the shadows? Do you want enthusiastic attendees that understand the backstory and context of your session? Just because you spend 40+ hours preparing for your session doesn’t mean all the people you imagine will show up actually will. You need to promote your session via the regular channels (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and the RTC Events news site).

Here’s your chance to go above and beyond your abstract and provide attendees with more context.

Submit a Speaker Spotlight to the RTC Events Blog. We’re looking for 2-3 paragraphs that help fill in the finer details.

– Who are you and what you do – not just your title!
– What’s interesting to you outside of work?
– What is interesting about what you do and what motivates you at work and play?
– What’s your session title and why is it important to the AEC community?
– What do you enjoy most about BILT?

Submit your Speaker Spotlight to via this link and we’ll select 3-4 each week to help you promote your session. And with ~23 weeks to go till the conference, there’s room for everyone!
