The Alt Summit team is enthusiastic about providing an experience where you can learn, connect, be inspired, and have fun. And we love experimenting with new ways to do that each year. Sometimes we get it oh so right! and sometimes improvement is needed.
So, based on your incredibly helpful feedback, here's a glimpse of what we're planning this year:
- You wanted more opportunities for small group mingling . . . this year we're building loads more small group activities into the schedule including tours on the first day. How does checking out cool, arty Palm Springs with a few new friends sound? You'll get the chance to sign up before the conference, and choose from among a whole host of amazing tours!
- You liked having time to relax, network, and take great photos . . . how about a lunch-time party? an extended lunch hour with killer photo opps and content creation, great food, and time to make connections. All during daylight hours, when the Palm Springs natural light is at its best.
- You loved the content, but with so many simultaneous classes available, you were overwhelmed trying to choose which panel or keynote or roundtable to attend . . . this year we're focusing on the content you want most, so that you can make time for every class or opportunity that appeals to you.
- You liked having a break from day-to-day life and being pampered . . . how about breakfast in bed? Morning yoga? Cocktail hours? And sponsor spaces designed to spoil you. We have a looong list of perks in the works, just for you.
- You loved taking over the entire hotel and bunking with new friends . . . this year we're giving you time before the block of rooms open to make roommate connections. Once you register, you'll be invited to our Alt Summit Roommate Connections Facebook group where you can find the perfect roommate.
We're so excited about our 2018 Alt Summit Schedule! You can check it out here. Our Call for Speakers will open in September and no specific topics or speakers have been decided on yet. This is just a simplified schedule to help you picture what the conference will be like; exact class titles and speakers will be announced at a later date.
