CONFERENCE SPEAKER PROPOSALS

It's been nearly 20 years since we launched the IMC program at WVU and we want to celebrate you — our 2,500+ strong alumni, student and faculty community. To showcase our global marketing communications network, we are extending a call for presentations and invite you to come home to campus for a unique, epic networking event.



Integrate 2023 speaker proposals are now open!

As part of our 20 year celebration, we are extending this call for presentations to 2,500+ network of current students, alumni and faculty to share what exciting things they are doing. We are planning to make speaker announcements early next year.

We are excited that you are interested in presenting at the Integrate 2023. By submitting a proposal, you will have the chance to shape the marketing communications industry by sharing your experiences and lessons learned to an audience that includes current students, alumni and industry professionals alike.

  • January 16 (11:59 p.m. ET): All proposals must be submitted by this date.
  • Mid-February: Acceptance notifications will be sent via email.
  • June 1-3: Integrate 2023 Conference (Morgantown, WV).

Call for Proposals

Presenting a content-rich presentation, either as an individual or as part of a team, is an excellent way to share knowledge, experiences and ideas. The conference will showcase future directions, best practices, stories of successful collaborations, lessons learned and media solutions. We welcome your submission! Please read this page carefully before you begin to work on your proposal.

  • Featured Speakers (set at 1 hour)
  • Workshop (set at 1.5 hours)

Presenter maximums

  • Presentation sessions allow for a maximum of one presenter.
  • Workshop presentations allow for a maximum of two presenters.

Proposal Instructions

Prior to starting your proposal, please review the information required to complete the conference speaker proposal. You must complete your proposal in one setting as it cannot be saved and accessed later. The following information is required.

  • First name, Last name and email address
  • Presentation Format (see above)
  • If a copresenter (workshop only): First name, Last name and email address
  • Session Title: Be creative yet descriptive. Do not use abbreviations. (100-character limit)
  • Session Abstract: Be creative as you want colleagues to attend your session. Tell us what you will cover during your session. (1500 character limit)
  • Session Takeaways: Identify three key takeaways or learning outcomes

Creating Your Profile

A profile is required to submit a proposal. You will submit:

Name, Title, Company, Address, Email, Phone, submit your bio and photo, as well as any social channels we can tag as we post accepted proposals.


If Chosen, You Will Receive

Selected Speakers will receive a Conference Only pass and 3 nights in the conference hotel. You will need to plan the rest of your travel and if you plan to attend the Closing Keynote Dinner, you will need to purchase that separately.


Voting

After the Integrate committee reviews and identifies the selected proposals, we will then open voting up to our network. We are opening up the voting process to let our network vote on the topics they are interested in, as well as avoiding repetitive topics.
