The Alt Summit 2018 venue, The Saguaro hotel, is currently sold out. To accommodate you and your team, we have booked additional rooms at the nearby V hotel. Although it is just a short walk, we will have shuttles on a constant loop to and from the V hotel and The Saguaro throughout the event. Go here to make your reservations at the reduced Alt Summit rate of $125 per night.
If you have already booked rooms at The Saguaro and are willing to switch to the V hotel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance!
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 Kelly 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

Palm Springs, CA 92264
Rates for storage of boxes are as follows:
$2.50 per box of 40lbs. or less per day

*Partners are responsible for covering all costs including the cost of product, fulfillment, shipping, and receiving. We will connect you with the hotel prior to the event so you can set up credit with them to make the payment process quick and simple.
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.
