Speaker Guidelines 2017-12-06T17:59:50+00:00



We are now putting together the programme and the speakers for the IMTJ Medical Travel Summit 2018.

If you wish to be considered as a speaker at the Summit, review the guidelines below and then submit a proposal.

Speaker guidelines

  • We will favour proposals that feature new content that has not been presented at other events in the medical travel sector.
  • We encourage proposals in a variety of formats. You may propose content for:
    • A solo speaker presentation
    • A panel discussion
    • A round table discussion
    • A case study
  • We will not accept submissions that promote a specific destination, service or healthcare provider. A case study of best practice is acceptable but this must be delivered as a learning tool rather than an advertisement for what you do.
  • Speakers will be high level executives or respected opinion leaders within their industry.
  • Speakers will be confident in delivering entertaining, engaging and stimulating content and must be able to demonstrate excellent presentation skills (through personal recommendation by others, or online video examples).
  • As part of your speaker application, we request that you provide a short video (2-3 minutes) which can be recorded on an iPad/iPhone, outlining the following:
    • Who you are
    • Brief outline of your experience in the medical travel sector
    • Summary of the topic you will present
    • What the audience will gain from your presentation
  • Speakers will be fully funded for accommodation and conference registration.
  • Speakers will be expected to attend throughout the two days of the Summit.
  • You will retain the copyright in your presentation content. IMTJ will publish your presentation content on the IMTJ web site for the benefit of the Summit delegates and IMTJ’s paying subscribers.

Speaker proposals must be submitted by November 30th 2017.
