2020 is a year like no other. The pandemic led to the cancellation of the physical PEI Convention at the NACS Show in Las Vegas. It has slowed business in many sectors. But surveys show that PEI member companies remain busy.

It's more important than ever that we connect. Join us for the first Virtual PEI Convention & Expo LIVE Nov. 10-12, 2020.

PEI Convention Education: Submit a Proposal

Potential speakers for the PEI Convention at the NACS Show may submit a speaking proposal for the 2020 event. Proposals will be considered when planning for the 2020 PEI Convention at the NACS Show. Planning is already under way.

We are always looking for dynamic speakers to share their expertise with PEI's attendees. Submit your speaker proposal or add your name to our speaker database by clicking below. Proposals are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. If we are interested in your proposal we will reach out for further information. 

Submit a Proposal


Speakers will be mindful of the fact that retailers attend the PEI education sessions to learn.

This means that suppliers may not use any PEI education platform to pitch their products or companies, and will be asked to use PEI-branded PowerPoint templates where applicable.


Once submitted, you will receive an automated email confirmation of your submission. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, preference for speaking goes to existing PEI members. All PEI Convention session topics are determined based on the needs of the industry as identified by the PEI Education & Convention Committee. If a topic brought forth by our Committee matches your submission, we may contact you for further exploration of your participation as a speaker.
