Let’s talk about speakers for Alt Winter, shall we? First of all, there are an extraordinary amount of good speaking pitches this year. SO MANY good ones. Which is fantastic! We are still going through them, and we are putting together the most info-packed and interesting conference agenda possible. Which means if you applied to speak, watch your inbox, because we still have a lot of YES emails to send.  

In the meantime, if you would like a sneak peek of the speaker list, you will be glad to hear we started posting bios and photos on the Alt Winter speaker page. Go take a look!

Be sure to watch for a whole bunch more speaker announcements in the upcoming weeks, and if you don’ t have your ticket yet, grab it soon while you still can. You know you want to be at Alt to hang out with such fabulous people!
