Frequently Asked Questions
Meet Magento brings together the whole Magento ecosystem. As organizer we’re trying our utmost to offer a place for you to network, learn from each other, to feel good and have lots of fun. Above there are three superimportant pillars that make Meet Magento DE a success:
The collaboration and support of the Community, the sponsors who help financing the event and last but not least the speakers, who share their knowledge with attendees for free.
We’re really happy that you’re interested in holding a talk on a Meet Magento stage. As speaker of #MM19DE you will stay remembered for the Magento community. It’s a pleasure for us supporting you in this regards.
Will I get a free ticket as a speaker?
Yes, you will! As speaker of Meet Magento DE we’re providing you with a free ticket. The ticket includes hot and cold dishes as well as drinks during the event and access to the after-show party on June 3, 2019, where we will have dinner all together. A few weeks before the event will be happening, we provide you with a code for the registration of your free ticket.
Do you pay for speakers?
Meet Magento is a community event and is financed only with sponsorship and ticket sales. For this reason, we generally can’t release any fee for speakers and can’t pay for hotel or travel costs.
But it’s a matter of heart to us to enable that everybody, who is interested in Meet Magento DE, has the possibility to attend the event. So, if you want to hold a talk at MM19DE, but don’t know how to pay for travel costs and accommodation expenses or to organize childcare, please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love helping to realize that you’re able to take part in Meet Magento DE. Besides that there are wonderful Magento community members who would also love to support you in this regards. Many thanks to Daniel Fahlke aka Flyingmana who initiated this program. Together we will make sure that we will all meet in June 2019 in Leipzig!
Is there a deadline for the Call for Papers?
Yes, the C4P is open until up and including January 31, 2019.
What are you doing to make holding a talk attractive to women?
We would love to have more women on stage! In context of Call for Papers we will actively ask and motivate women in the Magento ecosystem to hold a talk. Do you know a woman who definitely should speak at the event? Please make sure to ask in your company if a female representative wants to hold a talk!
We would be happy about your support to help us increasing the percentage of female speakers. Any kinds of ideas are very welcomed.
Can I suggest a speaker?
Sure, go ahead! Contact Anna via email@example.com and let us know how/where you heard about the person and why the person should speak at Meet Magento. We will consider your proposal and try to get in contact with the potential speaker.
Can I suggest a colleague or client of mine?
Yes, if your colleague or client is ready to speak at Meet Magento stage, then we are pleased about the proposed topic through our call for papers.
Will I get a speaker slot as a sponsor of Meet Magento?
The talks and speakers are selected independently from a sponsoring to guarantee a program with high value. In the Gold sponsorship package there is a talk included – but the topic and format of the talk have to be previously agreed with us.
Can I submit more than one topic?
Yes, of course. We will evaluate all submissions. In relevance, it’s possible that two session slots will be assigned to one speaker. But this is the exception rather than the rule.
