Are you ready to party it up at Alt Winter? We are! And we want you to have a hand in planning the fun. For the last few conferences we have invited creative and talented Alt Summit community members to host our Mini Parties. They put together a planning team, then come up with fantastic themes and gorgeous decorations. They help make the Mini Parties one of the highlights of the conference! 

What are Mini Parties? On the last night of the conference, in adjoining meeting rooms, Alt Summit throws a whole bunch of parties — around 10 or so! — each one with a different mood, look, food and hosts. Attendees hop from one to the other, finding a DJ at one party, a photo booth at a party down the hall, and dessert in that party with all the glitter. You can see photos from the last Mini Parties here. They are so much fun!

For January’s conference, we want to do the same thing. This time we have partnered with Maurices, and once again we are inviting you to come up with teams and submit your best party ideas. Think: fun, over the top, and visually fabulous!

If chosen as one of our hosts, your team will receive: 

- 3 complimentary tickets to Alt Summit Winter, happening in Salt Lake City in January 2016. 

- $1000 to execute the party. 

- 3 $100 gift cards to Maurices allowing you to buy a piece or two to your party. As the host, we want you to look your best!

Remember: there's not much time. Drop what you are doing, gather your team, and head on over to Maurices for some inspiration because you only have until Monday, November 2nd to enter. Please be sure to read all the details before entering.

We can't wait to see what you come up with!
