The virtual TechTalks program is an additional opportunity for you to get in front of potential customers this summer leading up to TAPPICon LIVE!
How it Works:
TechTalks will be pre-recorded in a webinar-format giving presenters a window of time to explain their new technology. There will be a live Q&A session at the end of the recorded presentation. The final webinars will be posted on the TAPPICon event website as a “TAPPICon LIVE! Show Preview” and will be accessible to all visitors on the site until November 2021.
How to Secure a Spot:
All applicants are asked to provide a seven-minute presentation of your new technology, product or service without commercialism guidelines/restrictions (TAPPI anti-trust guidelines will still be enforced).
Requirements of TechTalks Application
- Presenter must be a 2021 TAPPICon LIVE!
- Presentation must be for a new product, new service, or a new application of a product or service. “New” is defined as having been introduced to the market after April 2019. Month and year when the product was first introduced to the market will be required.
