Speakers and Exhibitors

If you would like to do more than join us at Red Shoes events, feel free to express interest in being a guest speaker, or providing a table exhibiting your services or products. Please email your expressions of interest to redshoesnetwork@gmail.com.

Speaker must offer a short and interactive session related to the theme of the night and to the aims of the Red Shoes Network (see our Home page). We want new content or a new perspective on old but good content.  “Hard selling” will not be tolerated, but a brochure or business cards can be distributed. Please note we have a lot of requests and your expertise will be included in our decision processes.

We will share opportunities for exhibitors amongst our regular Red Shoes participants. Let us know which evening you are keen to exhibit, and how your table is related to the theme of the evening (see Forthcoming Events page). We will limit the number of tables, and would normally charge you $30 on top of your normal registration fee. We love it if you are able to provide give aways to all who come to the event (allow about 60), or just for those who come to your table.

Here’s a run down of what happens:

5.30 – 6            Arrive and set up your table. We provide the table. You provide a display of your products and services.

6. – 6.30            Participants are free to visit your table over drinks and nibbles.

6.30                    We’ll introduce table exhibitors before we introduce our speaker/s for the night.

Approx 7.30            Approximately 20 minute break while participants have drinks, nibbles and can visit your table.

Approx 8.30            We draw door prizes and close the event. If you’d like to provide a door prize, please let us know early so we can plan for that. If you have participants chatting at the end of the evening, feel free to stay a while as we pack up around you!
