Suggest a mainstage presenter

Know of a visionary you’d like to see at a future ISTE conference? We’re looking for mainstage presenters who inspire us, amaze us and ignite our passion for connected learning.

Our mainstage presenters are known as individuals from any field, including education, who can bring fresh perspectives to our audience in new and exciting ways.

Catch our attention by:

  • Thinking outside the box. The ISTE Conference & Expo isn’t your typical education conference.
  • Keeping it simple. Make your case briefly, concisely and with gusto.
  • Sharing examples. Link to videos and articles about your suggested speaker.

Don’t be shy — if you’ve got a burning message to share, feel free to recommend yourself!
