NFT.NYC Speaker Submission Process

A core value of NFT.NYC is to give the NFT community a voice by putting as many passionate and insightful speakers on stage as possible.

  1. For NFT.NYC 2022, we received over 4,000 Speaker applications and 40% were approved.

It is a privilege for us to read through every single speaker application that’s submitted to us.

Below is a summary of our speaker application and evaluation processes so that future speaker applicants can maximize their chances of approval.

How do I Apply?

  1. Please provide a completed application (no TBDs or N/As) here:
    Remember we want to see your thought leadership and passion.

Note: NFT.NYC is using a new Speaker Portal. This new platform will allow you to apply once and your profile details will be saved to be reused for any future NFT.NYC events.

Speaker Format

Below is the breakdown of the acceptance rate per session format (this is the data from NFT.London 2022):

  1. 65% — 25 minute Panels (4–6 people)

Panel Applications

  1. Each panelist must submit their own speaker application — this is the only way to keep track of and program the large number of speaker submissions we receive for our events.
    Tip: Panelists can apply using the same Session Title in their individual application.

How are speakers selected?

  1. Speakers are chosen for their thought leadership and passion for NFTs (talks MUST be about NFTs — not Web3 or Metaverse).

When will I know?

  1. Every few weeks we review the latest applications and announce approved speakers.
  • No name or verifiable identity
