    Members of the Program Advisory Committee evaluate all proposed programs based on the following criteria: overall quality, relevance to the industry, well-defined focus within the program track structure, practical applications of material,timeliness of the topic and speakers qualifications.

    To be considered for a NeoCon Conference, your program must be educational in nature — that is, sales presentations will not be accepted. Industry manufacturers or vendors not exhibiting in the trade show are not eligible to speak or participate as a presenter. In addition, your material should be original; otherwise, sources must be referenced. For multiple speakers, each speaker must agree to this submission and must be listed on the application. Incomplete program submissions will not be considered.

    The final program selections and notifications will be made four months prior to the show. You will be notified only if your program is selected.

    Program Guidelines

    Your program should address one of the educational tracks and program categories listed. Programs should be one hour in length of time, including a brief session for question and answer. We will seek continuing education unit (CEU) accreditation for all programs once they are selected. Programs should not consist of more than three speakers, including the moderator.

    Speaker Expenses

    NeoCon will provide round-trip coach airfare and one night’s hotel accommodations for those approved, eligible speakers who travel from outside of the show location and are selected to present. No travel or hotel expenses will be paid by NeoCon for speakers currently employed by manufacturers, permanent showrooms in The Mart, exhibitors or members of the Press. Speakers added after the selection process will not be reimbursed for hotel/travel expenses.

    NeoCon reimburses eligible speakers hotel and travel expenses without honorarium.
