SPEAKER SERVICES AND FAQS

Experience Matters. And so do our Speakers! Thank you for your willingness to share your time, knowledge, and resources with the Webmobileexpo. We are grateful for your participation and want to ensure that your time at WME Show is both pleasant and enjoyable. The following information and services, including an online Speaker Ready Room, will help you prepare pre-show and onsite for your presentation.

Speaker Ready Room

Submissions

When and how are Speakers selected?
There are 12 Sessions taking place at WME Show, within several targeted Conferences, Each Program is different, but typically Speakers are selected by the technical advisory committees, the WME Show Program Advisory Group, industry surveys and the all-industry Call for Speakers. The WME Show Program is finalized by mid-January, with most speakers selected by that time.

What are the technical specifications for my Session?
Room specifications vary depending on the Conference. You will be able to review the audio-visual and room specifications for your Session upon being notified of acceptance and after you have logged into the Speaker Ready Room.

Do you have to be an Exhibitor to submit a speaking proposal?
No. Anyone can submit a proposal addressing any of the suggested topics or trends.

Can we submit a proposed list of panelists and moderator for our panel along with our description?
Yes. This can be done in the submission process.

Will there be focused segments for start-ups launched this year?
WME Show is proud to launch new initiatives each year. Typically these are finalized in the fall. For new initiatives, invitations to speak are usually handled separately with an WME partner or by the WME team. Sessions submitted via the annual Call for Speakers are consulted as well during this process.

How do I submit suggestions for workshops?
Enter your suggestions on tab 3 in the submission process.

If I submit a proposal after the deadline, can I be considered for the next Show or will I need to re-submit?
You will have to re-submit when the next Call for Speakers is announced.

One of our clients would like to submit an abstract and technical paper, but does not want to present at the conference. Is this an option?
Yes. This needs to be stated in the description on tab 3 during the submission process.

Are there a maximum number of speakers we can submit per proposal?
There are typically no more than six speakers per proposal.

What happens if I lose my badge?
Lost badge replacements are issued in your Speaker Ready Room, or Main Registration onsite. You will be asked to present some form of government-issued ID, as well as pay an onsite processing fee to replace your badge.

Can I bring a guest to the Show to attend my Session?
Yes. You may request one Session Pass for a guest to attend your Session.

Each WME Show conference has a designated contact for Speaker care. You will be able to view the contact list through the Speaker Ready Room upon acceptance as a Speaker.
