2018 Brand Policy
No Brand, Marketer, or Agency may host any event, function, training, seminar, focus group or other activity that, in the sole discretion of Alt Summit, competes with Alt Summit Sunday, March 24 - Friday, March 29, 2019.
Alt Summit does not permit suitcasing. Suitcasing is when non-sponsoring companies hand out promotional materials and products without securing Alt's permission or officially supporting the event. This can also happen when attendees who are registered with a blogger or micro business ticket (which are subsidized by paid sponsors) hand out materials for on behalf of another company.
Alt Summit does not permit outboarding. Outboarding is when companies set up shop near the event (this might be outside the hotel, at a nearby coffee shop, or a hotel room within the event) with the intention of drawing conference attendees away from the regular scheduled events and programming.
Alt Summit does not permit Partial Outboarding. Partial Outboarding is when sponsoring companies pay the minimum level of sponsorship and then hold unofficial, unsanctioned functions intended for the Alt attendees but held outside of the normal planned calendar of events.
Alt Summit does not permit the distribution of propaganda or products without the approval of Alt.
Alt Summit does not permit tweeting or posting on various social media outlets that freebies or handouts will be available during the conference without the approval of Alt Summit.
If the above activities do occur, Alt will take the following action:
- On-site revocation of credentials and immediate removal from event.
- Prohibition from speaking or sponsoring at future Alt events.
- Reserving the option to seek legal remedies and damages as appropriate.
