Are you ready to inspire?

The SMPS Build Business Conference Committee invites you to submit a proposal for Build Business 2021. The conference will take place from August 4–6, 2021, in-person with limited attendance and as a virtual conference.
Marketers and business developers have pivoted and focused as they faced many challenges this year. Now it’s time to R.I.S.E. together. For next year’s conference, we’re looking for relevant sessions to help conference participants and their firms continue to grow and thrive.

To see what we’re looking for, check our proposal instructions

Proposal submissions, including your video submission, are due by January 8, 2021. Each speaker also is required to submit a 500‐word conference summary on their topic as well as a two-minute video that conveys to attendees why they should attend your session by March 5, 2021. Submitters will be notified if they are selected or not selected to present at Build Business 2021 by February 15, 2021.

Have you heard a speaker you’d recommend for a Build Business session? If so, please forward this message and encourage them to submit a proposal.

P.S. If you're not interested in presenting but have an idea you'd like to share from session topics to the overall conference experience, we want to hear from you. Submit your idea (big or small).
