Call for Presentations


Call for Presentations

Be a presenter: Proposals are being requested for project team presentations, single presenters, seminars, and panel discussions that address the educational needs of these stakeholders. We are looking for Innovative Sustainable Design Solution presentations. Preferred projects can be “real” projects or conceptual designs, and can be in any phase of design/construction or recent completion. Preferred projects will be Central Ohio focused or involve a local design/construction team. No sessions that are based upon an advertisement, product or service will be accepted.

Presenters will be assisted in obtaining AIA and GBCI learning units for these presentations. LEED-Specific presentations are encouraged. A LEED-Specific presentation needs 75% or more of the content related directly to the current versions of the LEED Rating Systems and Reference Guides, LEED certification process and/or LEED Online. Education sessions are scheduled for 60 minutes in length.

Presenter benefits: The presenters for each session selected to be part of DesignColumbus 2016 will receive a complimentary registration to the conference with lunch provided. Plan now to share your expertise and stand out among your peers!

How to submit a proposal: If you are interested in presenting, please go to and click SUBMIT A PRESENTATION at the top of the page or complete the attached application form and return it to the e-mail address listed on the form. Complete applications must be received no later than Friday, June 30, 2017. All shortlisted applicants will be notified by email no later than the week of July 10, 2017.

Advertising of presentation topics: Advertising of selected topics will be done throughout the five states in the Heartland and Great Lakes Region: Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Kentucky. If you have advertising material that may assist us in promoting your presentation, please submit it to us upon your selection notice. We will also be publishing short articles on each presentation. You will be given an opportunity to review the article on your topic before it is publicly released. If your presentation covers proprietary information that cannot be released before the show date, please notify us of this fact.

Feel free to pass this invite on to anyone that may be interested in presenting. If you have any questions or need additional information, contact:
