Don't Forget To Submit Your Keynote Pitch For The Beat Live 2021

An annual tradition at The Beat Live is our call for speaker submissions open to anyone who wishes to deliver a keynote address on a topic relevant to the corporate travel industry.

The deadline to submit pitches is Friday, Sept. 3. Shortly after, The Beat will publish pitches and let subscribers vote on their favorite.

The person who receives the most votes will land a solo slot on stage at The Beat Live, now in its 14th year and returning live and in person on Dec. 7 in New York City. A few runners-up will get a chance to deliver an abbreviated version of their address during The Views panel.

Please outline what you would discuss in a 30-minute keynote address by answering a few questions in an email to The Beat editor-in-chief Jay Boehmer:

In 250 words or less:

  • What would you talk about in your keynote address?
  • Why should the audience listen?
  • How will you avoid delivering a sales pitch?

Don't forget to put a snappy title on your proposed address.

In the meantime, stay tuned on speaker, registration and agenda information.
