Why become a speaker?
The Program component of the ECOSPHERE fairs is of major importance in raising public awareness of the issues and solutions for the transition, on regional, national and international themes, and in allowing visitors to acquire accessible know-how.
5 good reasons to present a conference or lead a workshop
Incredible visibility for you!
Our visibility plan includes promotion of the conferences in various social media and conventional media, on the web (1,800,000 impressions on Radio-Canada.ca, Tou.tv and CBC.ca websites for the 4 fairs) and through posters. A Facebook event and a paid registration through Eventbrite will be prepared to maximize the number of participants to your activity. We also count on your collaboration to broadcast your activity in your network.
Over 20,000 people already converted; a diverse audience!
Adults, parents, retirees, youth and children who care about the future of our planet visit the fairs. Some visitors are well informed citizens, others want to learn about certain issues or increase their knowledge and others are looking to develop their skills and change their lifestyle habits. Between 3,000 and 5,000 people visit each fair, a good pool to participate in your activity.
Each regional fair brings together skilled speakers and workshop leaders from many different regions and countries, including at the Saturday evening cocktail reception where you will have the chance to meet professionals who may open doors for you to pursue your business.
The Fair, an unlimited source of inspiration!
To help with the ecological transition, the Fair is an unlimited source of knowledge transfer and know-how. Meeting the public means reconnecting with the concerns of our fellow citizens and meeting potential allies for your projects. Many informal networks are created, giving rise to new collaborations or new projects.
An inspiring organization that has proven itself for 15 years!
The ECOSPHERE Fair is the largest public environmental gathering in Quebec, present in four regions (Quebec, Outaouais, Montreal & Eastern Townships). The glowing comments of exhibitors, speakers, workshop leaders and visitors on the organization of this renowned annual event attest to its ability to offer you an outstanding event with a casual and friendly atmosphere.
