Apply to Speak: Emerging Technology Spotlight

For the first time ever, Shoptalk will include companies featuring 100 different emerging technologies on the agenda. Each company will have 4 minutes to present their solution and the challenge it solves.

Guidelines for participation:

  1. Speakers on this track will be senior women at technology solution providers rather than at brands and retailers.
  2. For venture-backed startups, the participating speaker must be the most senior-level woman at the company. Only one presenter may speak per company.
  3. The speaker’s ticket to the event will be complimentary, but we do not cover travel or provide any guest passes.
  4. Early-stage startups (those less than 2 years old and with $2 million or less in funding) may qualify for a special program which will provide a travel stipend to participate. Please check the box to indicate your interest in this program.

We will be selecting companies for the Spotlight based on a variety of criteria, including the following:

  1. Relevance to attendees and fit with the Shoptalk 2020 agenda
  2. Innovation and differentiation
  3. Importance to the retail industry
