Eyeo Email list


Here’s an answer to a popular question: We don’t do a formal call for submissions for talks. Just send us a note and some links about yourself and your work and we’ll check it out. We love to see what people are up to. What we don’t know could fill a book, and people are killing it everywhere, so don’t be shy. Please note: We don’t respond to inquiries from PR firms working to get speaking gigs for their clients.


We love our sponsors. Our attendees appreciate what they do, and what they make possible at Eyeo. Shoot Dave an email if you’d like to learn more about supporting the festival and the community it gathers.
