BEA Topic Talks

If you are still looking for a way to participate in #BEAvegas, a BEA Topic Talk might be your answer.  BEA’s Topic Talks are a series of focused and organized idea exchanges taking place at the convention. They are conversations about awareness and possibilities, sometimes referred to as, “open forums for discussion rather than unidirectional information distribution.”

Topics Talks are located in BEA’s exhibit hall located at the Westgate Hotel & Casino, Pavilion 4-8, and each will have a moderator and an optional added guest or two to help keep the conversation moving.  These low tech but highly conversational sessions take place on Sunday, April 19 and Monday, April 20.

You have until January 18th to submit your idea and acceptance for Topic Talks is rolling.
