If you'd like to collect information from your speakers before your event, you can do so with hidden registration pages, and have them register for your event at the same time.
Hidden Registration Types
To set this up, first create a new Registration Type. Make sure that the "Hide from event page" option is checked under Advanced Options.

To collect the appropriate speaker information when your speakers register for your event, you'll want to add the appropriate fields to the Registration Form.
Make sure that when adding the Speaker Information section to the Registration Form that you apply the section to the "Speaker" Registration Type only.
