Greater Nashville Technology Council seeking ideas for its inaugural Nashville Innovation Summit

The event expands on the success of nine years of the Nashville Analytics Summit, but broadens the focus.

Have a topic that you think would be interesting to attendees at the 2024 Nashville Innovation Summit? If so, the deadline to submit your idea is this Friday, June 14.

Expanding on the success of nine years of the Nashville Analytics Summit, the newly named event broadens the scope with data and artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, and innovation and leadership programming. The event, organized by the Greater Nashville Technology Council, is scheduled for September 30 and October 1 at the Renaissance Hotel Nashville.

Session options include:

  • Lightning Talks (10 minutes) which are described as “an impactful and to-the-point presentation on a topic you’re an expert on in one of the tracks. Limited to one presenter per session.”
  • Panel Discussion (60 minutes) – Bring together a group of experts on a topic to present in one of the tracks. Limit three panelists plus one presenting moderator. Session time includes audience Q&A.
  • Session (60 minutes) – Present on a topic as a subject matter expert in one of the three tracks.  Limit of two presenters per session. Session time includes audience Q&A.
  • Sponsor Session (30 minutes) – Present on a topic as a subject matter expert that covers one or multiple track topics. Highly recommended to avoid all-out sales pitches. A good sponsor session would include case studies of how you solved a real-world problem, education on the topic, or specific processes, best practices, etc. Sponsored sessions are paid opportunities and presenters will be included in the number of registrations with your sponsorship level.
  • Roundtable Discussions (60 minutes) – Moderated and facilitated breakout sessions where attendees are divided into groups, based on an interactive topic. Plan to include in your proposal the overall theme and the discussion points that will be proposed to the attendees. Presenters can facilitate a discussion on their own or include additional group leaders to guide the conversations. Include the names of the presenting facilitator and leaders in your submission. Roundtable discussions are reserved for people who are already attending the Summit.
  • Workshop (up to 90 minutes) – A hands-on workshop where attendees learn a specific skill or use of a new technology. Please provide details about the necessary technology attendees should bring to the session.
