When attendees are asked about their goals for attending for Alt Summit, two of the most common are learning and networking with other creatives. This round up of attendee recaps includes key takeaways from sessions as well as behind-the-scenes details on some of the event's interactive elements.

The Takeaways or What We Learned

Curious what attendees' takeaways from the event were?

The Visions (and DIYs) for The Conference's Interactive Elements

Throughout the event there are opportunities to network with brands (sponsor lounges during the days) and other creatives (breaks, lunch, and the evening parties). Key to these opportunities are spaces where everyone can put down their devices and interact. 

Read about the visions behind a few of the interactive elements of the conference from their creators:

  • Laurie tells the story behind the interactive art installation Step Away from the Screen created in the networking lounge.
  • Natashia of Canary Jane and Jacquelinne of Strive reveal how their team brought a space to life where attendees could create giant bubbles in troughs adorned with cascading floral garlands. Want to recreate their balloon garland backdrop? Michelle of The Mumsy Blog walks you through each step!

The Business Cards

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.
