The Launch of the 'No Chairpocalypse' Speaker Strategy

Talking to rows of empty, identical chairs must be every conference speaker’s nightmare – not to mention the ultimate worst case scenario of every event organizer (right after having speakers pitch products and services from the stage). Luckily, this is not a concern that should keep you up at night if you consider speaking at the #NativeDAYS19.

The Native Advertising DAYS crowd is a loyal one, counting 450+ media and marketing professionals from all over the world. And they will be there to cheer you on and to ask you curious questions if you swear to deliver relevant, informative and valuable insights that relate to content marketing and native advertising and provide answers to their initial concerns and/or need for knowledge.

That said, we are currently curating the perfect mix of topics and speakers to inspire the native advertising community to come together in Berlin on November 11th – 13th, 2019.

Round Tables Discussions 

Roundtable sessions bring together industry experts and #NativeDAYS19 attendees for an informal and enlightening discussion on a specific topic of the session speaker’s choosing. The discussions/sessions will take place in a conference room dedicated to roundtable discussions, making way for more intimate discussions. The sessions will run alongside keynotes and featured track sessions throughout the conference.

Session duration: 30-60 minutes, seats 8-10 people for a healthy in-dept discussion. You pick the topic and facilitate the conversation.


Panels are always an interesting conference format – especially if the topics discussed are cutting-edge and either tap into the attendees’ curiosity or address industry obstacles, professional gaps or collective pain points shared by the entire industry. This is a format where shakers and movers can discuss how to move the industry forward as a whole. 

Session duration: 30 minutes, seats 4 people for a healthy discussion on stage. You propose a panel topic to host yourself.  


Relevant Criteria to Consider Before Submission

  • MANDATORY: You must send us a video to be considered as a speaker for Native Advertising DAYS 2019. You do not have to submit an ‘on stage’ pro performance, but we need to see you ‘in action’ to be able to consider your work for this conference.
  • If you want to be considered for a Keynote or as a Featured Track Speaker please keep in mind these few rules of thumb:
    • No Selling or pitching on stage (we will choose great content and relevancy over synopses that smell like pitching ANY day).
    • No discrimination of any kind.
    • No political agendas
    • Only original work (respect copyright laws)
  • Native Advertising DAYS is a conference where gender imbalance is addressed in the curation of our conference program. We believe that a balanced speaker line-up makes for a better conference and a much more diverse discussion. That’s why we strive to hit a 50/50 quote when we curate speakers for the Native Advertising DAYS.
