2010 Mobile Beat Seeks Conference Speakers

June 10, 2009 by Michael Buonaccorso

BC Productions,Inc., producers of the Mobile Beat DJ Shows and Conferences, is looking for creative presenters for the 2010 MBLVx event, which will run February 8-11 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

With more than 40 various conference sessions planned, the Mobile Beat conference program unites the industry’s most respected experts to address the latest trends, strategies and profit opportunities emerging in the mobile entertainment industry. More then 2,000 attendees including DJs, retailers, manufacturers, media, and reps from all over the world have attended past Mobile Beat shows.

Speaker proposals will be accepted through September 30, 2009. Proposals can be submitted online at:

http://www.mobilebeat.com/the-company/contact-mb/

or contact Show Producer Mike Buonaccorso at mb@mobilebeat.com

Due to the number of sessions offered and the need for a balanced program, a limited number of presenters will be accepted. All proposals will be considered based on content and subject matter, professionalism, prior public speaking experience and relevance to overall conference. Sales pitches and product-specific sessions will not be considered for the general show, but can be arranged through the MB Sales Department under our “Sponsored Session” program . Proposed presenters will be notified of their acceptance status at the end of October.

Please note the following change of information in our procedures. In 2006, Mobile Beat embarked on a grand experiment to compensate the speakers of our Las Vegas event. No other major DJ show to date had ever established such a policy.The purpose was to raise the industry bar, develop some degree of loyalty, and encourage those who had never spoken before to participate. After three years, little of this has succeeded. We have watched as many of our speakers show up everywhere, and from most sources, in places where there is no equal compensation to our efforts. As a result, starting with the 2010 Las Vegas show, speaker compensation will return to what was our policy prior to 2006: 2 full show passes, and an opportunity (if applicable) to sell your product through individual arrangements.

Show management will work with speakers on all logistical and promotional aspects of the session. Speakers are required to prepare and reproduce presentation materials, including handouts or related materials and topic outlines. All hotel and travel expenses are the responsibility of the presenter.
