Speaker Requirements
  • Nominated speakers must be senior IT executives from major restaurant chains.

  • Please note: We are not seeking any vendor executives as speakers.
Nomination Guidelines
  • All nominations must be submitted in writing by email to be considered.
  • You may make multiple speaker nominations.
  • We are always seeking the strongest story in every speaker placement. Therefore, when you make your nomination(s) you may indicate which topic from our agenda you are suggesting the candidate for, or, if it is an especially compelling story feel free to propose an alternate topic. Note that in all instances final placement of any nominee on the 2017 MURTEC speaker roster is at the sole discretion of the MURTEC / Hospitality Technology event editorial team.
Submission Information
  • The executive's name, exact title, company name, email, phone (required)
  • In 25 words or less, a brief indication of the executive's focus that would relate to placement on the MURTEC agenda (required)
  • If applicable and available, the executive's admin name, email and phone (not required)
Nomination Process - Key Information

Please note that we recommend submitting a "preview" speaker target list. Why? There are several reasons a nomination that looks great on paper to you, may not be acceptable to the Hospitality Technology event editorial team in this event cycle, so a preview list lets us provide you with some early feedback on your potential candidates in case we see any problems before the candidates are actually contacted.

Nomination Deadline
  • 2017 MURTEC speaker outreach officially underway.
  • Our objective is to have the majority of the speaker roster populated by December 15, 2016.
  • Please make nominations as soon as possible.
