Press release from the issuing company

Orlando, FL - The Printing Association of Florida, producer of the annual Graphics of the Americas (GOA) Expo & Conference, is accepting speaker submissions now through July 31, 2010 for next year's event. GOA 2011 is being held in Orlando, Florida, on February 24-26, 2011 at the Orange County Convention Center (North Hall).

Renowned for its world-class educational sessions in both English and Spanish, GOA 2011 reaches out to industry professionals and executives for feedback and speaker submissions in order to build the most relevant, current and sought-after educational tracks to offer attendees and exhibitors.

Are you the industry's next best speaker?  
GOA is looking for both veteran and newer speakers alike, as long as candidates possess comprehensive technical training, intriguing insight, and industry-relevant material to share with peers. If you are looking to discuss success stories, captivating case studies, etc. - we want you!

Speakers have represented every facet of the industry; including designers, brand owners, print buyers, prepress specialists, printers, marketers and business strategists.  GOA aims to focus session content that helps navigate conference attendees through the current state of the industry; and seeks those who can offer innovative new strategies, tips, techniques, and best practices that speak to emerging markets, cultivation of new prospects, customer retention, and many other hot topics.

Proposals may be inspirational, practical, or both; and should derive from the speaker's first-hand knowledge and experience. All proposals are subject to review and are selected based on relevance. Presentations of a commercial nature, or promoting a particular product or platform, will not be considered.

George Ryan, GOA President, says, "GOA is proud to offer one of the most renowned educational seminar tracks in the industry. Our annual call for speakers allows us to receive feedback and ideas straight from industry leaders and professionals as to what they'd ideally learn during next year's show; so that we can build our program accordingly."
Submissions for sessions in Spanish
