Welcome to Alt Summit! We want to make sure your experience at Alt is effective and productive! Here are some to-do's and logistical details that will help things run smoothly.
This is a living document and will be updated as need and as circumstances change, so please KEEP THIS LINK and check back. We will keep this list updated with current information that may help you.
Please send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org
- High resolution logo suitable for web and print use
- Short blurb about your company for our website (see examples here)
- Social media handles and hashtags you'd like to use for the event
- Pertinent messaging points you'd like the Alt Summit attendees to know about. This can include upcoming campaigns you'd like to highlight, the kind of people you'd like to meet at Alt Summit, a bit about your brand and what you do, etc . . . We'll use this to craft your announcement message to our community for our newsletter, website and social media channels.
You are allowed to reserve a certain number of rooms at The Saguaro based on your level of sponsorship. Go here to make your reservations at the reduced Alt rate. If you need extra hotel rooms, we recommend Ace Hotel or The Parker. Both are just minutes from The Saguaro hotel.
You can register here using the code you have been sent. Please have each member of your team register separately. You will need to enter a billing address, but no credit card info. If you have questions about the process or how many registrations you have available please email email@example.com.
SHIPPING BOXES TO ALT
Boxes can arrive at the Saguaro Hotel starting Friday, February 23. Please let Erin know how many boxes you anticipate shipping directly to the hotel. Mark boxes as follows:
The Saguaro Palm Springs
Attn: Hotel Sales Department
[SPONSOR NAME] [SPONSOR CONTACT] re: ALT SUMMIT
1800 E. Palm Canyon Drive
Palm Springs, CA 92264
Rates for storage of boxes are as follows:
$2.50 per box of 40lbs. or less per day
$5.00 per box of 41lbs. or more per day
We recommend bringing pre-printed mailing labels for your return shipping. This will save you time and hassle. The hotel staff can help you get boxes to UPS, FEDEX or other carriers.
LOAD IN and LOAD OUT
You will be assigned a load-in time about two weeks before the event. If you use a preferred provider (see below) to execute things, the load-in time will be coordinated through them. If you choose another service or remain independent, the load-in assignment will be made directly with you.
These two companies can help you with furniture, linens, flooring, etc . . .
