It’s the final countdown! Before you know it, we’ll be gathered together again. And boy do we have some good things planned! Here are seven opportunities that you can take advantage of at Alt Summit next week:
Headshots — Two Options
Justin Hackworth has been at every single Alt Summit. We’re so happy he’ll be back this year to capture more of YOU. Justin will be shooting all conference long. If you’d like to see yourself through Justin’s lens, you’ll reserve a spot in person on the day of the shoot .
New this year: You’ll find PictureHum in the lobby shooting modern professional headshots. They will have a rotating selection of modern neutral backdrops, and a PictureHum photographer will take 5 images of you from your best angles and then email them directly to you.
At Alt Summit, we do our swag bags a bit differently. At our legendary Gifting Party you get to browse tables from our hand selected vendors and bring home only the items you actually want. Pick up your ticket when you check-in at the registration table Sunday afternoon then join us from 6-8 PM that evening upstairs in the Sago room to select your goodies.
This year we’re featuring a variety of installations from 11 incredible artists that will be scattered throughout the venue. We’ve been seeing sneak peeks on Instagram and holy cow, we’re all in for a big treat. You can look forward to murals, stage backdrops, interactive installations, and live art. We encourage all attendees to talk an Art Walk and visit all 11 art pieces.
Hosted by fellow attendees, meetups are chill hang-outs, deep discussions, and get to know you opportunities, with people who are interested in the same things you are. They start the first day of the conference, so take a look at the full meetup schedule to see which ones you want to be a part of. No need to sign-up, just show up and mingle. This is an ideal way to make new connections while at the conference.
Author signings happen right inside the pop-up bookstore that you’ll find near the bocce court. Take a look at the schedule and take note of the times your favorite authors will be available.
Business Card Wall
It’s been a few years, but we’re bringing the business card wall back. Don’t forget to bring several of your cards to share with new friends and post on the public wall so attendees can know how to connect with you after the conference is over.
When you’re getting your suitcase ready, throw in a piece of clothing that needs to be given new life. Then join Alli Mayorga’s round table on Wednesday morning for a clothing swap and discussion about thrifting. You’ll chat, style, and leave the discussion inspired — and maybe even with a new-to-you piece of clothing to love!
Four days friends! Four days!
