Speaker Timeline

Speaker Timeline

Leading up to the conference, there are several key deadlines requiring direct response from you and any joint presenters. With your assistance in meeting these deadlines, we can publish content on various platforms including the website, the mobile app and program guide, and allow us to attract the right audience to your session and give you and your topic ample exposure. To remain in the IPI Conference & Expo education program, the following deadlines and requirements must be met:
November 16, 2017 Official Invitation to Speak submission selection notification sent (via email)
November 30, 2017 Selected speaker(s) (including co-presenters) sign and return  IPI Speaker Agreement document electronically. Document provided in the Speaker Service Center (SSC). 
*failure to do so by deadline will be an automatically revoke your offer to speak/present.
November 30, 2017 All presenters must provide a bio (75-word or less) and professional headshot (gif/tif/jpg - 300 dpi or more).
*failure to provide as instructed
will omit your detailed information from onsite guides, mobile apps, signage, etc.
April 2, 2018 Special request for onsite AV due to IPI (including "sound").  Any request after this date will not be guaranteed.
*To submit requests, access the Speaker Service Center (SSC)

May 9, 2018 All Presentation handouts (i.e.- PDF's and PowerPoint's) must be uploaded in the Speaker Service Center (SSC).

If any deadlines or requirements are not met, the session will be at risk for removal from the education program without notice. By confirming your invitation to accept by way of the Speaker Agreement, you are agreeing to these deadlines and requirements.
