Announcing the 2013 U2 Conference Mainstream/Popular Track

8 Sessions Total, 5 of Which are Open for Speaker Pitches

@U2, January 21, 2013

@U2 is thrilled to be part of the second U2 Conference, which is coming up on April 26-27 in Cleveland, Ohio. We were involved in the first conference three years ago as promoters, but for this year's conference, we're helping to program several sessions! In addition to the conference's own academic sessions, we've put together a group of more mainstream/popular topics that we think will be interesting, informative and fun.

We've created eight sessions that will be on the Conference agenda and now we're ready to hear from anyone/everyone that wants to be a speaker/participant on these sessions. As you look through the mainstream/popular track, you'll find that we need presenters for five of these sessions.

On our 2013 U2 Conference page, you'll find the full list of sessions, along with the proposed format and a session description. For the five "open" sessions, you'll also find links to tell us that you'd like to be considered as a speaker/participant. Those pitch forms are brief, but please fill them out completely. We'll leave the forms open until February 8th, then we'll spend a couple weeks choosing speakers/participants. (As a reminder, all participants/speakers will be expected to pay the full conference registration fee -- $249 until March 11th; $299 after -- as well as any travel/accommodation costs.)

Ready?

Here's our Mainstream/Popular Session Lineup for the 2013 U2 Conference!

Again, please fill out the appropriate form(s) if you'd like to be a speaker/participant on any of the open sessions. Even if you don't want to speak/present, remember that you can reserve your hotel room now and conference registration will open on February 1st. We'll see you in Cleveland!
