For a while now we've all heard that this is the moment: video is going to be everywhere. Well this summer it was finally true. So many attendees live streamed sessions and snippets of the event via Snapchat and Periscope. In today's recap round up, we're sharing some video recaps.

Carly of Ever Clever Mom walks you through the entire conference from check in to Tuesday night dinner to the closing Picnic Party, capturing all with her GoPro. She also shared her highlights in the first of her recaps (session takeaways and outfits still to come).

This video tour from Annie of Annie Ashley Design starts on the airplane to Salt Lake City, highlights some sights around the city itself, and then showcases the closing picnic party, complete with a bunch of us having fun in a Photoboothbus!

Watch one of our popular sessions, Energy is Everything, given by Miranda of One Little Minute.

If you missed the first video we shared in the first of our Alt Summer 2015 recaps, be sure to see Olivia's take on the energy of Alt Summit. It's sure to have you up and dancing--the perfect mid-afternoon pick me up.


Video Highlights from Past Alt Summit Conferences

When pulling together the video recaps for Alt Summer 2015, we discovered a few videos from past conferences. We've gathered some of our favorites here for your viewing pleasure.

In January, Jen of Pretty Neat Living starts by walking you through her room at The Grand America and then shares her experience day by day. At last summer's inaugural Alt Summer, Beatrice Clay shared her experience through four videos: Part 1; Part 2; Part 3; Part 4

During Alt Winter 2013, Flipboard captured highlights of the event in a series of films: 

Have you experimented capturing or retelling an event through video?

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
