Call for Speakers

January 27, 2016

At The Republic of Quality we’ve been dreaming again. We moved from dreamin’ to doin’! This summer in Vancouver we’ll host the second annual Design & Content Conference on July 20-22, 2016! Vancouver is spectacular in the summer.

At the Design and Content conference, we’ll team up and learn from industry leaders how we craft experiences and tell stories that shape the future of the web. A day of workshops, two days of talks, and some amazing extras.

50 tickets at $200 off will be pre-released on Feb 11, 2016. This is an exclusive offer for our mailing list, so please make sure you subscribe.

We’re thrilled to bring some of the best minds and speakers in the web design and content strategy world to SFU’s world-class venue.

Submit your idea

This is just the first round of speaker announcements. We’ve got more coming in 2016 and we’re putting out a call for four more speakers. If you have something to share and would like to give a 30-45 minute talk at the Design & Content Conference, here’s what you need to do:

  • Send us an email outlining your talk idea.
  • Link to a video of you speaking at an event or send us a 3–5 minute video of you explaining your topic. We’re not looking at production value, but we are looking for your speaking and communication style. Record something on your iPhone or HD camera—show us that personality of yours!
  • Tweet about the event and let everyone know you’re excited!
  • Optional and helpful: write a short blog post about why you care about design and/or content strategy and how you see this conference helping those disciplines.

The deadline for submissions is February 13, 2016 at 11:59pm PST.

We pay our speakers fairly and hook them up with a speaker coach to prep for the event. We’re in this together!

And don’t forget, we’ll be pre-releasing 50 tickets at $200 off on February 11, 2016. They will only be announced through our mailing list, so please make sure you subscribe. These tickets will go fast.
