Want to Speak at Interact 2020? Call for Papers Now Open!

Speak at IAB Europe's Flagship Event Interact 

Interact is IAB Europe’s flagship annual conference and is a must-attend event for the digital advertising and marketing industry. For over 13 years, leading European advertisers, industry experts, agencies & media owners meet to get inspired, share best practices, further develop their professional network and pursue business opportunities.

This year Interact will take place on 2-3 June in Lisbon, Portugal and over 500 digital advertising and marketing leaders are expected to attend!

Interact Theme 

The theme for this year’s Interact is The Digital New Deal. Over the course of two days, we will discuss and debate how the future supply chain will operate and bring value for all stakeholders from consumers and brands, to publishers, agencies and tech companies.

We are looking for high-level speakers and panellists to share knowledge and key insights on the fundamental steps needed to ensure that the marketing and digital advertising ecosystem drives innovation, transparency and sustainability in the new decade. The event’s sub themes will focus on Policy, Privacy & Consumers and Business Trends & Tech Advances.

Call for Papers

To ensure Interact delivers thoughtful, insightful and non-sales presentations, IAB Europe has created a ‘Call for Papers’ process which encourages interested speakers to submit their ideas to present.

Our “Call for Papers” in 2019 was very successful in bringing together high-level speakers and panelists from all over Europe and from all areas of our industry.  All applications will be reviewed by the Programme Advisory Board for Interact 2020, a group of senior figures from across the Digital Advertising industry comprising brands, publishers, agencies and tech companies. They have kindly given their time to help us to shape the theme and topics for Interact 2020 to ensure the programme covers current and future critical issues.

The Programme Advisory Board will rate the proposals and we will then advise successful candidates who will be asked to send through their full presentations for review prior to delivering them to the conference.

Application Process

  • The “Call for Papers” Brief can be accessed here.
  • The application form can be accessed here.

All completed applications should be sent to

The “Call for Papers” process will close on 28th February 2020.  We look forward to receiving your proposals.
