More Info:
For each session proposal, please attach a one-page PDF outlining the following key points:
1. What new information will this session deliver at BANFF?
2. Who is the target audience for this session?
3. How would this session best be presented (keynote, presentation, panel discussion, master/mentor class, roundtable, networking format)?
4. For panel discussions, besides the speaker you’ve proposed, who else should be invited to share a different perspective or represent a relevant field?
5. What would be the key takeaways for attendees?

Once you’ve submitted this proposal, an email confirmation will be sent to the email address provided, and we’ll be in touch if we have any further questions. Thanks so much for sharing your idea with us!

Please note: BANFF speakers are confirmed in the late winter and early spring, and we don’t have room in the event program to accommodate everyone who’s interested in speaking. So we encourage you to register for the event at the discounted rates available in winter so as not to miss out on any savings.

Stay updated with BANFF announcements, new conference details, Rockie Awards news and more.
