We invite speakers from all professional backgrounds, such as FM practitioners, demand management representatives, professionals from the built environment, researchers, service providers and research representatives, as well as real estate, HR, IT and finance. Your profile description should display relevant experience and/or knowledge around the subject presented.
The talent and experience to speak for larger audiences, and in case of a workshop or debate, the skill to moderate and entertain a group of people, is valued.
As all the sessions will be in English it is important that the level of English of the speaker(s) is good.
When presenting slides, these need to support the content, be visually attractive and easy to read for the audience. This is very important when it comes to presenting research. Please use the World Workplace Europe format which will be provided to you if your submission is accepted.
We encourage speakers, workshop and debate organizers, to have a creative approach on the topic they want to cover.
All sessions should take 25 + 5 min questions or 45 min + 5 min. Please mention the duration of your session.
Also indicate the format you prefer:
- Plenary session
- Panel discussion
- Present research
A content board will evaluate all proposals. Based on the criteria (see Submission of your abstract process), a shortlist of submissions will be asked to send in a 1 min video where they pitch their presentation, workshop or debate.
The final selection will be communicated by December 6th, 2019.
Per selected session, only one speaker will be granted free access to the conference for the day of his/her session. Any additional speakers will be required to pay a reduced entrance fee for the day.
If a speaker would also like to attend the conference on the day, he/she is not speaking, the speaker will be required to pay a reduced entrance fee for this day.
When submitting an abstract, the speaker needs to be identified by the submitter. If this submission is accepted and the speaker is prohibited to join the conference on the day of his/her session, the session will be cancelled. No replacement speakers will be allowed without the consent of the organization.
