Share Your Expertise
ONWARD18’s Call for Speakers is now open. Thousands of Yext customers, partners, and thought leaders have achieved great success by using our solutions, and we look forward to you sharing your knowledge in ONWARD sessions.
More than a conference, Yext’s ONWARD is a celebration of those who seek to move their brands forward with new ideas, technologies, and actions. This year, we will bring together CMOs, CDOs, CIOs, VPs, Directors of Marketing, SEOs, agencies, and startups in wide-ranging conversation around our theme, Knowledge Is Power. Attendees will learn about the growing importance of Digital Knowledge Management (DKM) as well as how it impacts AI, augmented reality, location-based marketing, machine learning, mobile marketing, and brand management.
If you would like to showcase your expertise, insights, and how-to’s on any of these topics with the ONWARD audience, we encourage you to submit a speaking proposal by our April 27, 2018 deadline. We hope to see you on stage at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in October!
