Mega-Conference Solutions Stage

Posted 10/4/17

The 2018 Key Executives Mega-Conference invites proposals for presentations to be made on the "Solutions Stage" during this year's conference in San Diego. 

If you want to speak at the 2018 Mega-Conference, act fast. The designated slots are filling up fast. The absolute deadline to submit a proposal is Oct. 31 – but there is no guarantee that space will still be available if you wait until the end of the month to submit your proposal.

The Solutions Stage, which will be located in the Exhibit Hall, is an excellent opportunity for our R&D partners to get in front of conference attendees during a break-out session and share their expertise and solutions to issues faced by newspapers. 

All submissions should include a case study that demonstrates the value of the solution presented, in terms of new revenue, audience engagement or other quantifiable measurement, that will help our planning committee, and our audience, better understand the potential return from investing their time with you. Approved submissions will be grouped together to best meet the needs of the audience.  There is no promise of exclusivity and not all submissions will be approved.

Presentations to be made on the Solutions Stage will be promoted in advance of the conference by the association partners, and will be listed in digital and printed programs for the Mega-Conference.

Companies that plan to exhibit or sponsor at this year's conference are invited to submit proposals now. Submit your proposal as quickly as possible (but no later than Oct. 31) for consideration.


The content planning committee will review proposals submitted. While the committee expects that all presenting companies will be financially supporting the conference through sponsorships and/or exhibit space, decisions about which proposals to give stage time to will be based on the value of the presentations to conference attendees – not on the level of spend. The selected presentations will be slotted on the stage during time frames determined by the planning committee. The committee also retains the right to move given presentations from the Solutions Stage to other portions of the conference program.

All Solutions Stage presenters must have a commitment and presence with the 2018 Mega-Conference that equals or exceeds that of a booth commitment (minimum of $3,600).

R&D partners whose proposals are not approved will have an opportunity to make revisions and re-submit for any remaining open positions on the agenda. The 2018 Mega-Conference planning team will work with sponsors and exhibitors as time permits to help with the resubmission process.  However, there are no guarantees of placement on the program.
