We can't think of a better way to kick off 2016 than with an event like Alt Summit. Seeing all your lovely faces has left us feeling energized and excited for what’s next. Listening to such amazing speakers, inspiring topics, and inside tips has left us feeling capable and ready to accomplish new goals. And, who can forget being excited for new opportunities, and feeling so spoiled, by each of our generous sponsors?

Head over to the Alt Flickr account and relive every second of the conference through the photos taken by our wonderful photographers Justin Hackworth and Brooke Dennis. Feel free to share any of them with your audiences, (please credit Alt Summit as the source). If you need a quick reminder of how to share photos and what is considered best practice, click over to this post.

And keep an eye out for a photobook courtesy of Chatbooks filled with all things #AltSummit. If you weren't able to post pictures during the conference (we get it, it was busy) go ahead and post (and tag) your favorites now so that they make it into the book!

As you share your Alt experience and reflect on what was learned, be sure to use the hashtag #altsummit, and email kelly@altitudesummit.com a link to any blog post published, so that we can include it in a roundup on the Alt blog and spread the love!

As always, a huge thank you to everyone involved!
