2^3 reasons to become a speaker at Big Data Technology Warsaw Summit 2018

Big Data Technology Warsaw Summit 2018 is fast approaching. Here are 2^3 reasons why you should submit your abstract for presentation and become a speaker in one of the technical sessions. The deadline for the Call For Papers is October 16th, 2017 and the submission page is here.

1. Be part of a truly tech event

The main goal of the conference is knowledge sharing, so we avoid commercial presentations, outright sales pitches or marketing nonsense. As a speaker, you can contribute your know-how back to the community. Your presentation can help others to solve real-world problems, follow best practices and learn your lessons from the battlefield.

2. Talk to an audience that appreciates tech stories

Our audience consists of hundreds of specialists who work as data scientists, data engineers, system administrators and tech leads. They are tech guys, so they don’t expect shows, body gestures and (many) jokes. The wish simply to learn something new and practical. Therefore, if you have a good tech story to tell, they will appreciate your presentation, even if you are slightly stressed, wear a T-shirt or don’t have much experience in giving public talks.

3. See 100+ people in your conference room

The last edition of our conference gathered over 400 attendees, but this time we aim for a half thousand people. Since we have four parallel tracks, over 100 people will attend your presentation. Isn’t it great to share your knowledge with the large crowd of technical folks? ūüôā

4. Meet other speakers and attendees

We give a lot of opportunities to meet and talk to speakers and attendees. This includes the party before the conference, round-table discussions led by experts and, of course, the conference itself, which is full of great presentations, Q&A sessions, panels and a few coffee breaks.

5. Get feedback from the audience

After the conference, each speaker gets the summary of votes of her presentation given by the audience. This feedback, obviously, helps to learn how attendees enjoyed your presentation.

What‚Äôs more, your presentation can also be named as ‚Äúhighest rated presentation‚ÄĚ in one of four tracks. Your family and friends can be proud of you 🙂

6. Spend a few days in Warsaw, a city that was once described as Paris of the East

Warsaw is a really nice town with a unique history and soul. There are many interesting places to visit including Warsaw Old Town, Royal Baths Park (ŇĀazienki) and The Warsaw Rising Museum. By walking around, you can easily find many places with tasty food, speciality coffee, craft beers and … shots of vodka. Write to us (info@getindata.com) for more travel trips.

7. Speak at partner meetups nearby

Since we have friends who run Big Data meetups in other Polish (e.g. Kraków) or European countries (e.g. Amsterdam, Stockholm), we can help you to combine a single trip to Poland (or Europe) with other speaking opportunities nearby, before or after the conference.

8. Get visibility in Central Europe

Because Big Data Technology Warsaw Summit is one of the largest conferences in this part of Europe, many people will learn about you, your awesome company and cool stuff you do in your daily job.
