Hooray! It’s sponsor time! Grab your pen, because this is the first of three blog posts where you will hear all about the sponsors you'll meet at Alt Summit, and we know you are going to want to take notes.

Of course, the Alt Community is big and wonderful and goes way beyond the group of people attending Alt Winter. So we are sharing this information with the full Alt Community - some of these brands may be a great fit for you and your site, whether you have a ticket to Alt Winter or not. And these sponsors definitely want to connect with the whole community. Yes, you and you and you and even you!

For those who are coming to Salt Lake City this month, we hope this information will give you a head start on figuring out who you want to connect with at the conference. For those of you who are part of the larger Alt community, feel free to reach out to these brands through social platforms and get a conversation started.

At Alt, we work hard to bring only the best brands to our events. Each company is considered based on how the brand wants to help, collaborate with, or partner with bloggers. And many brands are turned away if they are simply not the right fit or not really looking to work with our attendees. All that is to say, these sponsors are terrific and they really do want to collaborate with you. Are you ready? Let's do this!
