Understanding Call for Speakers Proposals

Need more information on how to craft your NADA Show 2021 workshop proposal? Here are three examples of proposal summary submissions that were selected to become actual workshops at NADA Show.

  1. An energetic, engaging workshop description 
  2. An outline of critical workshop takeaways (what attendees will learn)
  3. An original video submission for NADA Show 2021 or ATD Show 2021 (not a generic proposal for any event)
