Each year we provide a great line up of entertainers and speakers at the Vancouver Island Baby Fair and we welcome submissions for a chance at a spot on the main stage at the upcoming event September 30 & Oct 1 at Pearkes Arena in Victoria.
Professional educators and speakers on topics ranging from pregnancy through preschool may submit their proposal until July 30, 2017. From birthing preparation, to tips on breastfeeding, navigating new parenthood or the toddler years, we are open to your great ideas!
How to send in your submission?
Keeping in mind that presentations are up to 20 minutes long, please submit a title, a paragraph (or so) outlining the topic, and the speaker’s credentials. Please include some ideas on how you can promote your presentation to your networks.
Talks on the main stage must not be an infomercial for your company, but rather educational or entertaining. Please also indicate in your proposal if the speaker is available on Saturday Sept. 30 or Sunday Oct 1, or both days. You must not be offering this presentation elsewhere on Vancouver Island within 60 days of the Baby Fair.
Deadline: Please submit your proposal by July 31, 2017 via email to the Vancouver Island Baby Fair producer.
Note: A Photo, bio & topic description will be listed on our website & promoted in our show guide & through social media. Unfortunately, we are not able to use all the proposals we receive and sometimes get duplicates of speaking ideas. We will contact you if you have been chosen at which time we will require a photo & write up for our website.
