We are looking for a variety of topics that pertain to government meetings so we can provide the best education possible to all of our members. For inspiration, view our core competencies and the educational breakout sessions from this year’s conference.

SGMP does not issue a public call for keynotes. Keynote speakers are selected from previous breakout speakers and from recommendations from the National Board. There are two keynote positions. One keynote must work directly in the hospitality industry, and the second keynote can be motivational, humorous, etc. If you are interested in speaking to SGMP government meeting planners and government suppliers, the best way to get your “foot in the door” is by doing a breakout.
