Thank you for your feedback. We have chosen not to make ongoing applications a feature. When it was available for several years we found the event organizer (more often than not) was not keeping their listing updated. However, we have added a "clone" feature so you can easily create the same listing. All you would need to do is change the event dates. You can also note in your listing that your in need of speakers throughout the year, for example, so those that might not be available for the event date posted will know they can reach out to you. I hope this helps.
