Official Call for Presenters: Front End of Innovation 2016

The Institute for International Research (IIR) is currently seeking presenters for:


May 10-12, 2016
Boston World Trade Center & Seaport Hotel


On the heels of our largest and most successful FEI to date, we have just opened the first round call for presenters period for our 14th annual event taking place next May 10-12, 2016 at the Boston World Trade Center.

We will be reviewing early submissions now through Friday, August 28th . Due to the high volume of submissions, we suggest you submit your proposal early to Kelly Schram, Program Director at kschram@iirusa.com.

Only corporate/client-side speakers will be considered. If you are a consultant or a solution/technology provider (even if you are proposing a joint client presentation), please see contact details below for sponsorship/exhibit opportunities. Speakers receive FREE admission to the conference.

FEI is all about the Experience. We are looking for the following types of sessions, in order of priority (TOP CONSIDERATION will be given to interactive sessions).

·         Mini-Workshops: Collective intelligence is the key to innovation. We are looking for expert speakers to conduct collaborative 1.5 hour activities where attendees are taken through a process to get hands on.
·         Exploration Leaders: Speakers who are willing to get "outside the conference walls" and take smaller groups of attendees to local areas to explore/discuss various innovation ecosystems.
·         Interactive Discussions: Excellent facilitators who can give a short presentation and then lead the group in interactive roundtable discussions- with actionable outcomes.
·         Case Studies: We will only consider NEW case studies that haven't already been shared at another event.
