THAT Conference is the largest tech event in the US Midwest and it’s held at a waterpark. We are a family-friendly conference and encourage children (geeklings) to submit talks as well! We are looking for counselors on a wide variety of topics and backgrounds. Do you have a story to tell? Do you have expertise in a specific field to share? We want to hear from you!

Talk Audiences and Formats

You can apply to speak for the following audiences and formats:

Professional & Family Formats

THAT Conference is a professional polyglot technical conference that also has a rich experience for children and other family members. Your session could be aimed at the professional track or for family "geeklings".

Standard Sessions

Standard sessions are 60 minutes each, including time for answering questions. There is a 30 minute break in-between each session to nurture those all important hallway conversations.

Pre-Conference Workshops

Half day (four hours) or full day (8 hours). The day before the main conference is set aside for a full day of workshops. Be prepared to provide attendees a decent agenda for what you'll cover.

Keynotes

Do you have what it takes to give a 90 minute speech on something you're passionate about? You'll have an audience of over 1,000 people in front of the stage listening to your story. We want topics that'll motivate, energize, and help attendees see the world differently as the diverse place it is.
