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-owned Brands (private brand / private label). 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.

If you would like to speak ask yourself how is this specifically relevant to the private brand industry.
(We do not accept general business presentations, motivational speeches or speeches unrelated to our core focus)

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


  • All speakers receive a complimentary speaker pass, plus a free guest pass and a significant discount code.
  • This is not a paid opportunity.
  • 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.
