4 Opportunities to Share Your Training Expertise

Now's the time to think about submitting a Training 2019 Conference & Expo speaker session proposal, entering the Top Training Video Awards (TTVs), nominating an Emerging Training Leader, and applying for the 2019 Training Top 125.

I've been editor-in-chief of Training magazine for 11 years now, and it still amazes me how collaborative this industry is. Companies often ask me how they can share their training stories and showcase their learning and development best practices.

This is the perfect time of year to answer that question because I can think of four opportunities right off the bat:

1. Submit a session proposal for Training magazine’s 42nd annual Training Conference & Expo (Feb. 25 - Feb. 27, Orlando, FL). If your session is accepted, you’ll receive a 3-Day Conference registration for free (value: $1,595). We welcome submissions from in-the-trenches training professionals, consultants, authors, and vendors from corporations, academia, nonprofits, government, and the military. to submit your proposal, visit: https://www.trainingconference.com/2019/proposal_submission.cfm. Deadline: June 28, 2018

2. Nominate an Emerging Training Leader. The 25 winners will be featured in the January/February 2019 print and digital issues of Training magazine, and an awards ceremony will be held during the Training 2019 Conference & Expo in February 2019 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL. The Top 5 winners will receive a free conference registration. To download the nomination form, visit: https://trainingmag.com/nominate-2018-emerging-training-leader-today. No entry fee. Deadline: June 18, 2018--DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JUNE 25!

3. Enter the Top Training Videos (TTV) awards. Submit a 2-minute clip from one of your favorite training videos. The Top 3 videos in two categories--produced by professional video companies and produced by in-house training departments--selected by our panel of expert judges will be shown at Training's 2018 Online Learning Conference (Oct. 8-10, Chicago), where participants will vote on and rank the winners. All winners will receive crystal awards and free Online Learning Conference registrations. To upload your video clip, visit: https://www.onlinelearningconference.com/2018/abstract_form.cfm. No entry fee. Deadline: June 18, 2018--DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JUNE 25!

4. Apply for the 2019 Training Top 125. Besides the opportunity to earn a place on the list, receive a crystal award, and network with your peers at a black-tie Gala, filling out the Training Top 125 application helps organizations showcase the effectiveness of their training to their senior leadership and identify any gaps. Don't miss this opportunity to benchmark your learning and development efforts (note that only companies whose primary business is NOT training are eligible to apply). To download the application, visit: https://trainingmag.com/learn-more-about-training-top-125/. Application processing fee: $179. Deadline: September 17, 2018.

The Emerging Training Leader nomination form and 2019 Training Top 125 application form also can be downloaded below for your convenience. Likewise, a sample copy of the TTV entry form can be downloaded below so you can see what we will be asking before starting the online submission process.
