IMTS 2024 Conference Call for Speakers

The IMTS 2024 Conference | Call for Speakers

Abstracts are now being accepted for presentations within The IMTS 2024 Conference. Only contracted IMTS 2024 exhibitors will be selected. Prospective speakers wishing to participate in the IMTS 2024 Conference should submit their abstracts here: conference portal.

The educational value of the session topic is critical in the selection process and thinly disguised sales pitches will not be selected. Develop a unique approach to the topic and separate your session from other similar sessions being considered. Conference attendees should leave the session equipped with “lessons learned,” especially as they relate to new technology developments.
