Call for Speakers for CreativePro Week 2018

If you’re here reading CreativePro, chances are you’re an expert in some aspect of graphic design, production, or publishing, right? Do you also love what you do—and love sharing your expertise with others? Do you enjoy speaking in front of crowds?

The deadline for Speaker submissions is September 30, 2017, so don’t wait!

CreativePro Week 2018 New Orleans

What is CreativePro Week?

CreativePro Week is the industry’s only conference for graphic design and publishing with an emphasis on how-to.

It is not just one event, it is actually three conferences scheduled back-to-back, with special events and workshops throughout the week:

  • Ps/Ai: The Photoshop & Illustrator Conference for Designers: June 4–5, 2018
  • The InDesign Conference: June 4–7, 2018
  • PePcon: The Print & ePublishing Conference: June 6–8, 2018

CreativePro speakers are a special breed

Our speakers are a rare combination of expert users and expert teachers. They avoid slides, instead, they demonstrate with live files on their laptops and mobile devices. They prepare detailed handouts that attendees receive beforehand, and our speakers make themselves available and accessible to attendees throughout the conference.

Our attendees are special!

CreativePro Week attendees are a distinctive mix of production managers, creative directors, and graphic designers from all over the world. They are eager to stay on top of best practices and learn expert tips on how to get things done in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, print, PDF, and digital publishing.

Join us in 2018

Please fill out the “I want to present!” form on the CreativePro Week website by September 30, 2017. If you’ve never spoken at one of our events before, we’ll need to see a list of other events at which you’ve spoken, and links to videos of your prior talks (or you can make us a sample video). We’ll let you know either way by November 30. Looking forward to hearing from you!
