Shoptalk 2020 will feature hundreds of speakers from established organizations, leading-edge startups, influential media and the investment community. The 2020 agenda will showcase the most important technologies, trends and business models from around the world and include an unparalleled group of U.S. and international speakers.

Please note a few guidelines:

  • We welcome applications from retailers and brands as well as from solution providers. We do not, however, pair solution providers and their clients on stage together.
  • Speakers from venture-backed companies—both consumer-facing and tech—must be Founders or CEOs with very few exceptions (e.g., the company is post-IPO).
  • Speakers from established retailers and brands must be at a VP level or above.
  • Applicants who are selected to speak at Shoptalk will have their tickets to the full event comped, but do not receive any guest passes. We do not cover speaker T&E.
  • Due to the sheer number of speaker applications, we cannot schedule briefing calls or respond to requests via social media.
  • There are no pay-to-play speaking opportunities.
