Be a Presenter

We're inviting submissions for presentations, so whether you're attending the event or exploring a distant continent, if you've got a story to tell or expertise to share we'd like to hear from you.

We love to hear stories about your travel adventures, especially if you have great pics! Also, practical how-to sessions such as roadside cooking, navigation / GPS, trip prep and planning, adventure motorcycling medicine, packing light, setting your bike up, communications / blogging from the road, self-publishing your story, yoga for bikers, bodging / bike maintenance, self-defense, photography, videography, tire repair, safe riding techniques, how to pick up your bike, off-road riding, all are of interest.

There are 40 minute and 90 minute sessions available for talks, workshops, demos and live web chats.

Submitting a Presenter registration DOES NOT mean you will automatically be included in the schedule, as we often have more presenters than available presentation slots. We will confirm one way or the other as soon as we can (but not immediately!)
