After registering for our Publishing in Color conference, you will have the opportunity to sign up for a virtual 1-on-1 meeting with one or more of our conference speakers or other industry professionals or authors. These are informal ~20-minute chats (by phone, Zoom, or equivalent) that can be scheduled at a mutually convenient time, either before, during, or after the conference. Speakers are not obligated to follow up with you after the meeting.
Meeting slots are filled on a first-come, first served basis while supplies last. Within 5 days we will contact you by email to confirm your selection, or to let you know if we are unable to provide you with the meeting you have selected. After your meeting selection has been confirmed you will be contacted by the speaker in order to arrange a mutually convenient time to talk.
Below is the list of specific meetings you can sign up for, along with the person’s bio in case you need it. In addition to conference speakers, we have included many additional additional industry professionals and authors who are not speaking at the conference, but are available for these 1-on-1 meetings.
Please note: if you registered as a VIP, this is NOT the place to reserve your first three 1-on-1 meetings – please see the email sent to you for instructions on how to do that. However you may pay for additional 1-on-1 meetings.
All meetings are $10 each, which is donated to the Publishing in Color Scholarship Fund.
