Speaking Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in speaking at
Asia Farm Animal Day!

Taking place October 9-11, 2024 in Hanoi, Viet Nam, this event is a collaboration of Animal & Vegan Advocacy (AVA) International and Asia for Animals (AfA) Farm Animal Coalition.

Applications are open now!
Submit by July 15th @ 11:59pm EDT.

Know before you apply.

  • We expect to receive far more submissions than we can accommodate, and if we are unable to offer you a speaking opportunity this time, it does not reflect on the value you add to our movement.

  • When submitting a talk/workshop/activity, please focus on specific strategies, interventions, learnings, and useful take-aways for the audience instead of focusing on promoting your organization. 

  • We will consider up to two submissions from a given speaker and up to three speakers representing a single organization. We will carefully balance the amount of speakers who have spoken in the past and new speakers.

  • Submitting early is always a good idea! Decisions are made with our Steering Committee on a rolling basis. Deadline for submissions is July 15. You may not receive a decision until the end of August regardless of the timing of your submission, owing to developing the program concurrently with assigning speakers.

What we are looking for.

  • Our most common format is joint sessions, i.e., several individual presentations on similar topics grouped together in joint sessions with other speakers. If you submit a talk, we will likely look for appropriate matches with other submissions to build a joint session. Your likely speaking time is 20 minutes, with additional time for a shared Q&A.

  • Beyond standard presentations, we also highly welcome interactive workshops and other creative format submissions!

Deadlines and expectations.

  • Deadline to submit: July 15th, 2024 by 11:59pm EDT

  • Application verdicts: Decisions are made with our Steering Committee on a rolling basis. You may not receive a decision until the end of August regardless of the timing of your submission, owing to developing the program concurrently with assigning speakers.
