Final acceptance will be based on (but not limited to) the course’s ability to meet submission standards, overall program/track specification, and industry need.

The Conference Advisory Committee (made up of industry professionals) will review the proposed topics for relevancy and industry feedback. 

All approved courses will be submitted for continuing education and will therefore require syllabus handouts for attendees. Please note that companies that qualify for exhibiting must be exhibitors in the show to be considered for a presentation.

The deadline for returning your submission for consideration is March 12, 2021, but you may continue to submit proposals after this date in the event of a cancellation or change to the schedule. Final selections will be made in the summer.

You will be notified at that time to advise whether or not we were able to include your submission for the 2021 program. Should you have any questions about the PSP/Deck Expo conference program, please contact Brandi McElhaney at brandi.mcelhaney@informa.com 972-536-6392

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
