    The high quality of OTM/GTM presentations are a big reason that OTM SIG Conference attendees gain so much from this event. Are you interested in sharing your expertise? Submit a proposal to present at this key industry event. This will be a free virtual event taking place August 2-5.

    Here are a few guidelines for prospective presenters:
    • The conference team is looking for presentations that touch on functional and technical OTM and GTM topics.
    • Presenters can be Users, Partners (Consultant/Software Providers) or a Combination (User + Partner).
    • Presentations should only take 50 minutes, including Q&A, so make sure that your proposed topic can be covered within that time frame.
    • The submission deadline is Monday, June 14, 2021. 
    The conference team will review all proposals and send final decisions by June 28, 2021 or earlier. If your submission is selected, content drafts will be due July 19.
