Share your expertise at the largest Distilling Conference & Expo.
Our 2017 Baltimore Conference gathered more than 1,700 attendees and our upcoming 2018 conference in Portland is sure to be another hit!
Our attendees are eager to learn from their peers and industry experts about all things distilling, from setting up their company to making important marketing decisions to dealing with exports and fulfillment. There is increasing interest for specialized presentations around technical decisions, expert topics and upcoming trends and research.
You can submit several separate sessions if you would like. We reserve the right to combine presentations that deal with a similar subject in panel sessions.
If you are not ready to present, but would like to suggest a session that would benefit our industry, you can email us at email@example.com. We also welcome your suggestion or submission of White Papers and case studies (to be potentially used online and at the conference). All submissions will be reviewed by an expert committee.
Interested in submitting? Here are our tips:
Create a presentation title that clearly describes your session. The shorter, the better.
Identify your target audience and level of knowledge (basic/start-up, intermediate/confirmed, expert/master)
Identify your track (marketing, administration, technical knowledge, general industry knowledge)
Identify your presentation format (lecture, roundtable, hands-on, panel)
Write an engaging presentation description in 150 words or less. Summarize course objectives, learning outcomes and specific skills attendees can expect to gain from your presentation.
Providers (vendors) to the industry should bring a customer as their main presenter to share success and failure with their peers. We choose presentations based on the interest for our attendees.
Indicate if you have a book and if you'd like to do a book signing.
Deadline for submission is SEPTEMBER 15, 2017.
Keep the number of presenters to 2 maximum, unless on a panel. All co-presenters must actively participate in the presentation.
Keep the timing of the presentation to 45min or less, unless special request is made
Presentations must reflect the description given at submission.
To be considered, your session must be educational in nature. No sales pitch will be accepted.
Presenters are responsible for securing and paying for travel and lodging. ADI will provide Speaker Passes as well a discounted guest pass for the Conference & Expo.
Material should be original and will be shared with our attendees (for copyright reasons, you can submit an abridged version of your presentation to be offered to the attendees after the conference if you so chose).
For multiple speakers,
each speaker will be required to agree to the submission and rules.
Incomplete submissions will not be accepted. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an idea but need help with the format.
Our Review Committee will review and advise by November 15, 2017.
