Sponsorship & Exhibiting Opportunities
What if I am not a corporate practitioner (from a client-side company) but still would like to participate? More than 70% of our content will be delivered by corporate practitioners from retail and manufacturing. If you are a consultant or solutions provider and wish to be a part of the program, please contact Jon Saxe, Senior Business Development Manager at jsaxe@iirusa.com or 646-895-7467. We will customize opportunities to fit your needs from speaking, branding, networking and/or exhibiting.

 How to Submit For proper consideration, please include the following information with your proposal:
‘ Proposed speaker name, job title, and company name
‘ Complete speaker contact information – address, telephone and e-mail
‘ Short biography of speaker (50-75 words max)
‘ JPG headshot photo, minimum 300 dpi
‘ Title of presentation (one line, benefit oriented)
‘ Short summary of content to be delivered (no more than 75 words), followed by three bullet points of what audience members can expect to “take away” from the presentation

 Tips/Guidelines to Consider
‘ Sessions are 30-45 minutes in length, inclusive of time for Q&A
‘ Preference will be given to proposals that clearly illustrate the full insights to activation process
‘ Commercialism and self-promotion from the podium is strictly prohibited. Your presentation will be reviewed by a Content Review Board prior to the event and should you self-promote during the session, you will not be invited to return as a speaker.
‘ The conference audience consists of brand-side researchers, brand-side marketers, retailers and vendors responsible for gathering, translating and actioning shopper-focused insights. Your proposal must present what’s new, hurdles to get there and how it can move the industry ahead.
‘ Travel and expenses are the responsibility of the speaker.
‘ If your proposal is accepted you agree that it has not and will not be presented at any other industry forum within one year. It is important that the content is fresh and not repurposed here or anywhere else. Due to the high volume of proposals we receive, not every submission is selected. We rely heavily on three components:
‘ Content matches interest of audience identified through research.
‘ Compelling topic that showcases something new and exciting. It must show how insights were leveraged to drive action/sales/loyalty.
‘ Speaker is able to provide details in the format of a case study or interactive session. This event is about sharing with members of your industry, so the speaker must be willing to showcase the “how-to” details.

Those selected will be notified no later than January 2013. Stay tuned for more details on the event website at www.ShopperInsightsEvent.com.
