Presentation Proposal

Printer-friendly version

The Open Group builds compelling event programs featuring speakers who provide a wide range of expertise and experience, in order to give our attendees access to the best thought leadership in the industry. The Open Group events offer exposure for speakers’ ideas, expertise, and organizations to high-placed decision makers within influential organizations worldwide:

  • Representatives of global organizations including Fortune 500 companies, policy-making agencies and standard bodies
  • Professionals such as enterprise architects, designers and managers of IT infrastructure, product managers and engineering managers of architecture tools, system integrators, IT procurement professionals, and enterprise network security experts
Presentation proposals should be submitted online and will be reviewed by our Program Steering Committee. The session detail is a critical factor in determining whether your presentation proposal is accepted so spend some time outlining what you plan to cover.
 
The Program Steering Committee favors end-user perspectives and presenters, and vendor-neutral educational presentations that focus on the real-life applications and case studies. Front-line implementers and end-users are given preference in the speaker selection process. 
 
Vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers or end-users as presenters or co-presenters.
 

The Open Group is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium. To respect this neutrality, your presentation should not contain any marketing pitch for products or services.
