Session Submissions

IAVM welcomes all suggestions and recommendations of content for our educational offerings. If you are a speaker and have a well-crafted education topic that you want us to know about, please use our submission form to add it to our growing database of potential sessions. Your topic should be applicable to an audience of venue management personnel and fit within one our events and tracks. Please note this is a very selective process due to the high volume of submissions we receive and the limited number of sessions. Please contact if you have any questions.
