Call for Speakers 2022


Who may participate?

We are looking for people with real-world experience who wish to be part of this, passionate about sharing, inspiring, and connecting with others. People that can share insights and knowledge that attendees can't find anywhere else.


We will prioritize the participation of end-user professionals. End-users are companies and organizations that are implementing tech solutions and services across their value chain.

We look for people from Agriculture, Aviation/Aerospace, Buildings & Infrastructure, Construction, Defense & Security, Finance, Government, Healthcare & Pharma, Manufacturing, Metals & Mining, Public Safety & Emergency Services, Retail & eCommerce, Supply Chain & Logistics, Telecommunications, Transportation and Utilities.


An idea of what our audience is looking for


Lessons learnt, best practices, how to's, tips and hacks, real stories of failure and success (in that order), actionable guidelines and roadmaps, original research and deep analysis, to name a few. However, keep in mind that it has to be based on real-world situations and examples.


We and the audience most welcome real use/ business cases. Especially those presented by actual end-users. The best cases are those that provide real metrics and business outcomes besides the lessons learnt and best practices.

If you represent a tech solution provider, system integrator, or similar and submit a use/business case, we strongly suggest co-presenting it with your customer. If the business case involves another partner, you can also submit the proposal as a fireside chat session.

We don't give time for promotional pitches, theoretical presentations or repeated sessions.

The official language of IOTLAC22 is English. Therefore, every submission must be done in English, as well as the presentation.
