If you're an IT pro or tech expert with a desire to present your successful IT strategies, cutting-edge technologies, or helpful solutions, we invite you to submit to speak at SpiceWorld! IT pros that attend SpiceWorld are eager to learn practical tips to help them be the IT superheroes within their organizations. And now that SpiceWorld is worldwide, we’re looking for content from presenters from all over the globe! Please note, all submissions must be made in English.

Here's how it works: Once call for speakers has closed, the Spiceworks Community will vote on the sessions to tell us which ones they'd like to see at SpiceWorld. Finalists will then be reviewed by a team of Spiceworks staffers who will consider previous session ratings, current trending topics, and feedback from our own technical and IT staff. The selected sessions will be announced in May/June*. *Subject to change

Tips for Success
  • Make sure your presentation adds value. Include the key learnings attendees will take away from your session.
  • Keep it vendor neutral. It’s fine to talk about specific products, but Spiceworks will disqualify any product or vendor pitch.
  • Consider topics that would speak to the diverse international attendees who participate in SpiceWorld Virtual.
  • Get specific. Clearly define the concepts and ideas in your submission, explain the problem and the solution(s) you’re offering, as well as any important details.
