Call for Speakers

We are always looking for new conference opportunities. NRF develops educational programming for a wide range of meetings and conferences.  If you have an idea for a new conference or educational program that you want NRF to consider, please contact Eric Olson, VP, Education Strategies. 

Session Submission Instructions and Parameters
For many NRF conferences, we accept proposals for sessions. For others, the content is sponsored or organized by a particular NRF or NRF division committee.  In general, NRF rarely hires professional speakers and does not provide an honorarium or reimbursement for travel expenses to our events. For additional information, contact Rachel Weintraub, Director, Conference Education.

We are currently seeking sessions for the following events: 

NRF 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO
102nd Annual Convention & EXPO
January 13-16, 2013
New York, NY 

The call for presentations is open. June 1 is the session proposal submission deadline. Click here for more information.

The convention audience is comprised of the leading senior retail executives and top industry business partners from around the world. Content is developed to cover all aspects of retailing from technology and merchandising strategies to marketing and store design. The educational program is comprised of Keynotes, which may be sponsored and presented to the total audience and Breakout Sessions.
