More than anything else, NEON Retrofest is a space for those who share a passion for late 20th century culture to convene and exchange ideas and knowledge. We pride ourselves on featuring passionate and savvy guest speakers who can explore intellectual topics with detailed nuance and through the lens of lived experience.
In 2023, our guest speaking opportunities will be focused into just a handful of fascinating topics each day discussed in-depth by a range of panelists. If you are a recognized expert in 1970s-90s technology and/or culture, then you might be a great fit to speak at NEON. We are ideally looking for panelists to discuss the topics listed in the form below; please check all that apply, and also detail any relevant background and experience (i.e. books/articles published, lectures given/previous panel participation, work history, etc.)
