the ASP Summit
The ASP Summit is the premier global conference series for the
rapidly expanding application service provider industry. The
ASP Summit is designed to be the forum where industry innovators
and leaders meet enterprise customers to address the challenges
and unique issues of deploying the ASP model as an IT solution.
Speakers will examine the challenges and benefits associated
with being a player in the ASP industry as well as utilizing
ASP services and share their unbiased analysis, lessons learned,
and real world solutions for the ASP model. The following guidelines
are designed to help you select the best format for your presentation.
The ASP Summit Audience
The audience consists of a mix of ASPs, ISPs, ISVs, application
software vendors, integration and hosting services, network
service providers, telecommunications/carriers, next-generation
IP service companies, resellers, IT consultants, vertical market
service providers, investors and venture capitalists, corporate
executives, final decision-makers in IT solutions, IT and IS
managers and developers, and/or anyone else who may have an
interest in the application service provider marketplace.
ASP Summit Conference Agenda
The Conference Agenda is comprised of 60-minute breakout session
presentations (solo speakers and panel discussions) spread across
3 - 4 tracks. Breakout
sessions are 60-minutes consisting of approximately 60 minutes
of presentation followed by 10 minutes of interactive question
and answer time with the audience. We are looking for talks
or panels that discuss technical challenges and business issues
associated with being a player in the ASP industry as well as
buying and utilizing ASP services.
ASP Summit Session Formats
Sessions may follow an instructional format, case study format
or panel discussion format. Here is a brief description of each:
The solo speaker or instructor will share his/her insight and
expertise on the topic through examples and illustrations.
Speakers are encouraged to share their progress/story in being
an ASP or implementing an ASP across their enterprise. The case
study should identify the business and technology issues that
drove the decision making process, review the steps taken to
implement, identify the results and provide recommendations.
A panel discussion will begin with a statement of the issue
by the panel moderator followed by each panelist sharing his/her
perspective on the topic. After each panelist has responded,
the moderator will facilitate Q&A with the audience and
panelists. Panel sessions moderated by members of the media
often have pointed and challenging questions to get to the real
meat of the issue being discussed.

Summit Speaker Proposal Guidelines
Please review these guidelines before submitting your speaker
proposal for the ASP Summit.
All speakers are to avoid any appearance of commercialism in
their sessions. Case study illustrations or topic examples must
not promote the panelist or speaker's organization. We believe
that an objective presentation which meets the educational needs
of the audience is optimal to enhancing the credibility of the
speaker, the speaker's employer, and Key3Media Events. Those
who violate the audience confidence by presenting marketing
or self-promotion content will be immediately dismissed from
the conference schedule and may be banned from future Key3Media
Key3Media Events does not offer speaker fees/honorariums or
cover speaker expenses, including but not limited to travel
