We pride ourselves in producing engaging and thought-provoking content. All material should be fresh, innovative and not a repeat of content that you have delivered previously. You won’t see sales pitches or sales-orientated talks at Forum so please keep this in mind when thinking about your talk.
The Forum is under Chatham House rules (any information disclosed during the gathering may be reported by those present, but the source of that information may not be explicitly or implicitly identified) and sessions will not be available to general attendees of Collision. We get a considerable number of interview requests from journalists coming to our events. Any such requests will be sent to your team. For more information or any press-related queries, contact our Press Manager, Eleanor, at email@example.com. Any news or announcements? Let our Media Team know in advance.
Any changes to your schedule will be hosted via this page so make sure to keep an eye on it daily in the lead up to the event. The Speaker Prep Area is an area for speakers to prepare before going onstage. Access is restricted to speakers only. Speakers must arrive at the venue to register 90 minutes before they are due onstage. This is to ensure there is adequate time to register and get to the Speakers Prep Area to check in with Matthew.
