Apply to Speak

Shoptalk 2019 will feature more than 300 speakers, representing global leaders redefining the future of retail and ecommerce from established and innovative organizations, leading-edge startups, influential media and the investment community. The 2019 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, Shoptalk does not feature case studies where solution providers and their brand or retailer clients present on stage together. We welcome speaker submissions separately from both types of companies.

Complete the form below to apply to speak at Shoptalk 2019. With less than 90 days to Shoptalk, we now have very few open speaking spots, nearly all of which are reserved for very specific types of speakers. We are focused on execution to deliver an incredible onsite experience and regret we can't accommodate most calls to discuss our agenda and speaking opportunities. We recommend submitting speaking requests ASAP via the form below (please do not email us) and we will get back to you right away with a decision.
