Apply to Speak

Shoptalk 2020 will feature hundreds of speakers, representing global leaders transforming retail from established and innovative organizations, leading-edge startups, influential media and the investment community. The 2020 agenda will showcase the most important technologies, trends and business models from around the world and include an unparalleled group of U.S. and international speakers.

Please note that Shoptalk does not feature case studies where solution providers and their brand or retailer clients present on stage together—however, we welcome speaker submissions separately from both types of companies. Speakers from venture-backed companies—both consumer-facing and tech—must be Founders or CEOs with very few exceptions (e.g., the company is post-IPO).

Complete the form below to apply to speak at Shoptalk 2020, and we’ll review and get back to you. Due to the number of requests to speak, we cannot respond to email or social media requests to speak-you must complete the form below to enter the appropriate workflow. We recommend submitting speaking requests as early as possible since we make decisions on a rolling basis.
