All sessions will be presented in a panel discussion format with a moderator and up to four (4) additional speakers. While it is not necessary for proposal submitters to suggest speakers, SelectUSA does welcome your thoughts and ideas. Submitters may suggest a single speaker for their session proposal, but note that if the proposal and speaker are accepted, SelectUSA will populate the rest of the panel with other relevant experts.
All sessions will be recorded and will be open press unless otherwise noted.
An individual will only be selected to speak on one session, however, organizations can be represented on multiple levels. Individuals and organizations are encouraged to submit multiple proposals on various topics.
LIMITS ON NUMBER OF PRESENTERS
For all session presentations, a maximum of five suggested individuals (including the moderator) is permitted, but proposals may also be submitted with a single speaker or with no speakers associated.
You will receive notification of acceptance or rejection via email in early Spring 2018. SelectUSA and the Department of Commerce reserves the right to edit, combine, use all or portions of submissions for Summit programming (including, but not limited to, speaker selection).
