Apply to Speak

We are excited to open up the call for speaker proposals for the Midwest Travel Network Conference in Shipshewana, IN June 13-15, 2024. Midwest Travel Network is seeking speakers who are experienced and knowledgeable about current topics that relate to one of a few main topic areas:

  • Business Development
  • Writing/Content Creation
  • Destination marketing

All proposals should be at an intermediate or advanced level. We are not accepting beginner-level proposals at this time (exceptions might be made for “new” topics or tech, i.e. AI). The proposal/session should also not be a sales pitch for your business or brand.

The call for speaker proposals will be open until December 15th. After that date, the Midwest Travel Network team will be reviewing submissions and contacting those we are interested in having speak. Each session is an hour long and presentations should be about 45 minutes in length, with the last 15 minutes available for Q&A. In addition to solo speaking opportunities, we are also open to panels, interview-style chats or roundtable discussion leaders (this will be on Saturday).

If you have more than one idea, please submit separate submissions for each.

Midwest Travel Network does compensate speakers. Each speaker will be paid $250 plus a one-night stay at one of the host hotels.

Please fill out this FORM if you are ready to share your expertise and your proposal meets the above.
