Premier Thought Leadership

Speaking at Hashtag Sports provides executives, entrepreneurs, athletes, and influencers an unrivaled thought leadership platform to present to an ardent audience of peers, potential partners, and the sports community at large.

Our cogent track format allows for deep dives on a multitude of compelling hot-button topics. Thought leadership is delivered through a highly curated mix of speaking roles including power panels, keynote interviews, engaging workshops, and special partner-led sessions.

The Hashtag Sports 2017 agenda will feature 175+ speakers across 75+ sessions. If you are interested in speaking or would like to suggest speakers, please complete our speaker submission form.

As you apply, please keep in mind that due to the high volume of speaker requests and limited programming inventory, our selection committee will give precedence to those submissions most closely aligned with the following criteria:

  • Seniority - Plan to bring your A-game. The majority of speakers/panelists will be VPs or CEOs/Founders of their respective organizations.
  • Originality - Dare to be different. Consider making a major announcement, launching a new product, or revealing exclusive insights instead of recycling content from other events.
  • Talent - Athletes, influencers, and personalities are catalysts of much innovation across sports and deserve a spot at the table with the industry’s best and brightest minds.
  • Diversity - We’re a platform for discussing cutting-edge topics that haven’t been discussed before. Help us bring fresh voices to the industry by including panelists of disparate professional backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, and viewpoints.

The deadline for submission is March 31, 2017. However, we evaluate applications on a rolling basis and recommend submitting as early as possible to increase your chances of selection.
