Will you be holding an event in NYC in 2014?
We have plans to hold an event in Summer 2014. However, things are always changing. Watch for a formal announcement in January 2014.
When will tickets go on sale for Alt NYC 2014?
Tickets for summer events will go on sale in March 2014. Watch the newsletter for further details.
How much is registration for ALT NYC 2014?
The ticket price has not been set. The ticket price for Alt NYC 2013 was $250 for bloggers and $1000 for businesses.
When will the ALT NYC schedule be announced?
Check back in early June when we will have lots of schedule details to share. Of course, we like to keep a few surprises up our sleeves, which means the final schedule won't be announced until the week of the event. But we guarantee it will knock your socks off!
How will it be like the Alt SLC event?
We are working hard to keep the intimacy, the networking, the generosity, the eye-popping design and blow-your-mind information that we are known for at our SLC event.
Alt NYC is built to give your blog and business a kickstart! Be ready to leave with new friends, new ideas and give a new vision of where you want to go.
The main difference is that instead of attendees choosing between different classes offered at the same time, at Alt NYC, attendees will stick together during one track of panels and keynotes. Of course, there will be plenty of time for conversations and networking during breaks and meals.
How many people will be attending Alt NYC?
We will have about 300 attendees at Alt NYC. Be sure to bring your business cards!
Do you need volunteers?
There have been so many generous offers to help at Alt NYC. Currently, we are all staffed up.
We've partnered with the best!
For the 2013 Alt Summit in NYC, we are bringing together amazing brands that want to connect with the movers and shakers of the blogosphere.
