SITS15 – The Service Desk & IT Support Show ‘Call for Papers’ is now closed. However any submissions made after 21st November, will be considered for the SITS15 speaker reserves list.
We welcome submissions from exhibitors, experienced IT Practitioners, IT business professionals and speakers from around the world, to put forward their proposals to be considered for a speaking session at SITS15.
SITS15 takes place next year at London Olympia on 3rd & 4th June 2015
We are looking for:
To submit a proposal you must be able to tick at least two of the of the above. Exhibitors of SITS15 will be given priority upon the selection stage.
Sessions must not be of a sales nature – we will not accept blatant or overt product and service promotions. You should use this opportunity to educate and demonstrate your organisations’ thorough understanding in the subject matter. Presenters should be competent speakers, knowledgeable and well prepared.
The subject matter needs to relate to IT Service Management and IT Support issues but the particular topic you put forward is up to you. Seminar sessions typically attract an average of 80 delegates and should last for between 30 – 40 minutes which includes audience Q&A.
Sessions can take the form of educational seminars, case studies & panel discussions. You will have the opportunity to tell us how you would like your session to be considered. In addition to this, a number of the selected sessions and case studies may also appear on ServiceDesk360.com during the show campaign.
How to apply
Simply complete the online form below. The deadline for submissions is Friday 21st November 2015. Submissions received after this point will be considered for our reserves list.
Before submitting your topic, ask yourself:
“What three key things will the audience take away from my session?”
“Have I offered, real practical advice”
“Will my proposed session excite delegates?
“Will the audience find the speaker interesting and informative?”
“Will the audience leave the theatre eager to find out more about our business and visit our stand?”
You may submit as many papers as you wish to be considered, though there is a limit to the number of sessions per exhibitor in the final programme. The selection process will take place after 21st November and you shall be notified as to whether your session was selected or not, when announcements are made in late January 2015.
Finally, please note, all successful companies will be required to submit their presentations to us prior to the show date (date to be confirmed). The review of all presentations is part of our duty to maintain quality across the entire programme and ensures we are listening to and supporting the needs of our visitors. This will be a compulsory part of submitting a topic for consideration. Rest assured your presentations will not be released to anyone outside of Diversified Communications, without the speaker’s prior permission.
We appreciate that presentations often require minor amendments right up until the day before – this is fine as we do not require final versions. However, it is not acceptable to send us your presentations after the deadline as this leaves us no time to review. If you have any special requirements or any problems getting your presentation to us by the requested deadline, please contact us directly and we will be more than happy to help.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss any issues concerning your submission, or if you’d like to consider exhibiting please contact Toby Moore on 01273 645153 or Tmoore@divcom.co.uk
