Call for Presentations

The Great Lakes Technology Showcase
October 27 - 29, 2021
SeaGate Convention Center
Toledo, Ohio

The Great Lakes Technology Showcase features a series of educational sessions for attendees who have come to expect top-notch programming, in addition to more than 80 exhibit booths. The educational program is not intended to detract from the exhibits but rather to enhance the overall value of the GLTS to attendees. We are looking forward to welcoming attendees in person in Toledo, Ohio.

The GLTS Committee, made up of exhibitors and telecommunications experts, has issued a Call for Presentations for the 2021 Great Lakes Technology Showcase. We are currently looking for both general session topics and breakout sessions. All presentation proposals must be submitted by August 13, 2021.

**The GLTS committee requires that all presentations be educational, not sales oriented, jargon free, and have a timely topic. All proposals submitted by August 13 and containing the required information will be considered for inclusion in the GLTS program at the upcoming meeting of the committee. Submission of a proposal, however, does not guarantee a spot on the program.

Your submitted proposal must include:
1. Title of Presentation / Topic
2. Speaker (if known)
3. Summary / Outline of Presentation
4. Estimated Length of Presentation (in minutes)
5. Target Audience
6. Benefits to Target Audience
