This year’s theme is 'Technology.' We’re interested in all ideas that fulfill our goal of engaging people’s imaginations through a combination of art and science, but please understand that we are focusing on particular themes each Escape Velocity and as such, ideas in line with this year’s theme may receive priority.
DEADLINE: Request forms should be submitted no later than 11:59 pm on December 15, 2018. We expect to notify applicants by February 2019 regarding acceptance.
PANELIST BENEFITS: Up to two (2) complimentary standard weekend passes. (Additional passes can be purchased through the event website. Additional admission types, such as VIP and PAY IT FORWARD tickets, are also available. All ticket sales are final and cannot be refunded.)
PLEASE NOTE: Submitting this request indicates your interest in participating at Escape Velocity. There is no guarantee the idea will be accepted. In the case that similar ideas have been submitted, we may ask if you are willing to consolidate with another participant. Escape Velocity does not pay speaking fees nor does it cover travel, lodging, or meals.
TECHNICAL REMINDER: Please note that Escape Velocity does not provide laptops for presentations. It is the responsibility of the panelists to provide their own laptop. In addition, if you need to display or play any audiovisual materials (e.g. photos, slides, YouTube videos, music), please make sure you download those onto the laptop you will be using prior to the event. We cannot guarantee Internet connectivity.
