2018 VCIA Annual Conference
August 7-9, 2018
Burlington, Vermont

For the 2018 VCIA Annual Conference, VCIA will deliver exceptional education including ways in which companies are adapting to the changing world, innovative practices, unique learning formats and high-quality networking opportunities. Help us make the conference great by suggesting sessions that are centered on innovative and creative practices.  

Please note:
VCIA typically receives more investment-related topics than needed. If you would like to suggest investment-related topics, please limit to 1 or 2 topic suggestions. Thank you.  

Here are some of the things we are looking for in the 2018 sessions:
  • A spirit of global collaboration. Sessions that engage people in energized discussions offering specific solutions and takeaways
  • Things that captive owners and managers are doing which push the industry forward
  • Session leaders who share revolutionary ideas and inspiration
  • Thought-provoking panelists, especially captive owners, who have not spoken at VCIA before
  • Facilitators who are skilled at energizing discussions
  • Ideas for future-oriented pre-conference workshops

Please submit your ideas by Friday, October 20th.

Here's how:

Access and submit the form found at the link below by October 20, 2017.
