About Altitude Summit
It’s been said that Alt is life–changing.
Long before Alison Faulkner of The Alison Show was hosting sold out branding workshops and award-winning podcasts she came to Alt Summit to learn about social media and to connect with new friends.
You’ve probably heard the story of Twitter breaking through and making it big at SXSW. What you might not know, is that Pinterest made the scene because of a conference as well. And that conference is Alt Summit. Before Pinterest had a multi-billion dollar valuation, Ben Silbermann, the founder, attended our conference in the hopes of meeting beta testers for his new little website. And he found them.
And did you know that 85% of Alt Summit attendees have come back more than once? Maybe even more compelling is the fact that many of the most successful people in our industry don’t like to miss a single Alt Summit

Make A Stir
Come to Collaborate
Do you ever feel like you are a little too isolated in your work? You’d like someone who knows when to tell you “that’s a great idea!” or maybe even more helpful, “that’s a terrible idea!” Stylish business partners Melanie and Alma first met in the hall at Alt Summit. They realized pretty quickly that it was meant to be: life is short, and they shouldn’t waste any more time not collaborating. Since then they’ve launched and run both a successful online print shop and an adorably whimsical sock company!
Alt Summit is the perfect place to find a business bestie (or two) because of the completely collaborative tone of the conference. It’s not a competition or a chance to boast, it’s all about learning from each other, helping each other and cheering each other on. As Alma says, “Melanie and I have always believed in collaboration over competition. We were able to improve on one another’s ideas, boost one another’s confidence, and help one another to grow.”
Founded in 2009.
Since then, there have been 15 major events — seven flagship conferences in Salt Lake City, three flagship conferences in Palm Springs, two summer conferences in New York, one summer conference in San Francisco, and two more summer events in Salt Lake City. And there have been numerous online conferences as well.
Alt’s original name was Altitude Design Summit, but it didn’t take long for the nicknames Alt Summit and Alt to take over. The conference started as a gathering for design bloggers, and as the new media landscape has changed, our content and attendees have changed too. We now draw creative, design-appreciative entrepreneurs across all sorts of platforms — artists, photographers, pinners, instagrammers, vloggers, shop owners, content creators, designers, and yes, still bloggers.
