About

Team '22 is the ultimate event for modern teamwork. Attendees from around the globe are invited to explore the ways in which teamwork, humanity, and tech intersect, and learn about how Atlassian products and solutions can help unleash their team's full potential. 

We’re excited to announce Team ’22 will be a unified experience with a live, in-person conference followed by a robust digital experience. The in-person event will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the The Venetian Resort & Sands Expo on April 5-7, 2022 and will require a verification of COVID-19 vaccination for all in attendance. The digital experience will take place April 12-14, 2022.

We’re looking for ways you build thriving teams through unique practices or Atlassian products. What are some of your approaches to modern ITSM, development, or agile? How do you improve cross functional collaboration, candid transparency, mutual respect, and team inclusion in the era of distributed teams? Learn more about our content themes below.

We encourage individuals of all backgrounds and levels of speaking experience to submit a proposal. If you're selected as a speaker, you will receive a free pass for the event in which your session is accepted and speaker support throughout your presentation development process. The selection process is competitive, but we have tips below to help you submit a winning proposal.

Please note that we do not offer any paid opportunities to speakers, and these sessions are not for service and product pitches. If you're interested in marketing your solutions, please email sponsorship@atlassian.com.

Themes

See where your talk would fit into one of our four content themes at Team '22.
