Geekend 2019 Call for Speakers
It's 2019. You know what that means. Geekend is celebrating 10 YEARS of bringing together Savannah's best and brightest entrepreneurs, technologists, makers, creatives, leaders, and change agents. This year, with a new home and a few surprises up our sleeve, Geekend is more prepared than ever to move into the future with guts and grit.

With an expected attendance of 400+, we are accepting presentations that showcase Savannah's achievements in business, technology and arts innovation, address our toughest challenges, and discuss emerging trends.

If you have an exciting initiative, case study or success story, we want to hear about it!

Submit an abstract to be reviewed by the Geekend Executive Team, comprised of community members from a wide variety of backgrounds.

As you craft your abstract, please consider the following elements:
1. Relevant
The topic presented is closely aligned with current and emerging trends in business, technology or arts innovation.

2. Useful
The content of the presentation contains useful information that can be put into practice by attendees.

3. Engaging
The speaker engages the audience through the use of an essential question or guiding story/case study that keeps the audience interested for a 40 minute session! The speaker's vocal style and stage presence is confident, comfortable, natural, sometimes humorous, and thought-provoking.

What happens next?
The Executive Team will assess the relevance of your submission(s) and may also suggest improvements or changes. We will respond to you as soon as possible to inform you whether or not your presentation has been accepted onto the 2019 agenda.

If selected, this information will be published in event material. Please ensure all information submitted is accurate.

We will be accepting applications until March 22, 2019. Abstracts submitted to the committee as marketing will be rejected without review. In cases where you think a marketing message may be a concern, we strongly encourage you to partner with a customer and include users and relevant use-cases.

We appreciate the contribution and commitment our speakers make to this event. We appreciate you taking the time to submit your story!
