Call for Presentations

The Open Group builds compelling event programs featuring speakers with a wide range of business and technology expertise, to give our attendees access to the best thought leadership in the industry. The Open Group events offer exposure for speakers’ ideas, expertise, and organizations to high-placed decision-makers within influential organizations worldwide.

The Program Review Team favors end-user perspectives and presenters, and vendor-neutral educational presentations that focus on the real-life applications and case studies. Front-line implementers and end-users are given preference in the speaker selection process. 

The session detail is a critical factor in determining whether your presentation proposal is accepted so spend some time outlining what you plan to cover.

Vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers or end-users as presenters or co-presenters.

The Open Group is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium. To respect this neutrality, your presentation should not contain any marketing pitch for products or services.
