Xplor International Issues 2018 Conference Call for Presentations

Two-and-a-half Day Event to Host Educational Sessions, a Vendor Forum, and Networking Events

Lutz, FL – October 2, 2017 Xplor International, the worldwide electronic document systems association, has issued a “call for presentations” for their annual event, Xploration® 18, taking place April 17-19, 2018 at the Rosen Plaza in Orlando, Florida. The event will feature four distinct tracks which include over 45 educational sessions and a keynote, in addition to the vendor forum and daily networking events.

For the 2018 event, Xplor distributed a survey to past attendees, members, and the industry requesting information about what topics they wanted to see at the event. After an overwhelming response, the Xplor team compiled all the responses and created the tracks and topics that you will see at Xploration 18 based on that feedback.

Xplor has opened up the call for presentations with the ability to submit as either a Session Presenter or a Panelist. After tremendous feedback from the 2017 event, Xplor is continuing to offer session presenters the option of a 25-minute Lightning Learning or a 50-minute Deep Dive timeslot for 2018.

To view a full list of conference topics or to submit, please visit the Call for Presentations website. Session submissions should include case studies and address: what the subject is, why it is important, and how is it implemented. Due to past demand, we can only accept one entry per person for session presenters, so choose your best one! Those selected will be notified of the status of their submission in November.

If selected as a session presenter or a panelist, business end users will enjoy the conference with a complimentary Platinum Passport.  Industry partners/vendors will receive a discounted rate of $535 for the Platinum Passport, which is a savings of up to 50%!
