Share Your Insights at a Velocity Event

Apply to be a speaker

Velocity events are known for being daring, bold, and groundbreaking. A Velocity presentation isn’t just a story or a list of facts — it involves unique insights and draws exciting conclusions about the future of Retail Brands. We are passionate about providing a platform for new ideas and disruptive minds. Your talk could come to life as a compelling story, conceptual how-to, or cover a pressing industry issue.

So if you are a retailer or thought leader who shares our vision of boldly informing, inspiring, and connecting the Retail Brands industry, we want to hear from you.


  • All speakers (earned speaking roles) receive a complimentary speaker pass, plus a free guest pass and a significant discount code.
  • We do not pay a speaker fee but we can discuss barters.
  • When selected, the costs covering the logistics (travel, accommodation, etc.), if any, are covered by the speakers themselves.
  • Content has to be original or significantly updated and customized for the Velocity audience.
  • Each session can have a maximum of one person per organization (we like collaborations and different views).
  • Successful proposals are chosen based on the proposed idea and speakers suggested. Changes in subject or speakers have to go through the content team and may lead to the cancellation of the session.
  • Spaces are limited and some proposals may be offered a slot in a different format or stage than originally applied for.
  • Once offers are accepted, and speaker and session content has been confirmed, we will add the session to the event agenda. We may list the speaker as a confirmed speaker on the speaker page in advance of finalizing the speaker details.
