What is Alt Summit?
Alt Summit is the premiere conference for creative women entrepreneurs, content creators, and the people who want to connect with them. Expect the best classes, friendly networking, and inspiration around every corner.
Where does Alt Summit take place?
Alt Summit 2022 is a one-day conference taking place in New York City.
The NYC event will take place at Pier Sixty — located within New York’s iconic Chelsea Piers. This gorgeous venue is right on the waterfront with floor to ceiling windows.
In the past, Alt Summit has been held in Palm Springs, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, and New York. We’re excited to return to NYC and always love the energy and inspiration the city provides.
What’s The Riveter?
The Riveter is a beloved organization focused on supporting women in the workplace. It engages in political advocacy, provides office and work space, hosts events, and publishes content. They were hit hard by the pandemic and had to shut down their co-working spaces. Alt Summit was also hit hard by the pandemic and had to hit pause on events for 2 1/2 years. So we decided to team up and support each other with a 2022 relaunch.
What’s the price to attend?
Early-bird tickets will be available from July 7th until July 14 and are $450. After July 14, you can grab a ticket for $650.
What is the date of Alt Summit 2022?
Friday, October 7
Who comes to Alt?
Female entrepreneurs in creative fields, and the people (and brands!) who want to connect with them. Some attendees have been writing, creating content, designing, running a business, or building their social media following for years. Others just opened a TikTok account yesterday. And still others are thinking about launching a website next month. There are no pre-reqs for attendees.
Attendees are kind, open-minded, smart, and design-conscious. They are looking for opportunities to follow their passion, find meaningful work, and contribute positively to the world. They are intentional about their life and their purchases. They freely share what they’ve learned, and love to connect with others in real ways.
Alt Summit is where you’ll find your people.
What does my ticket include?
Full admission and full access to the full conference schedule — world-class keynotes, brilliant speakers, inspiring panels, and amazing sponsor areas (and sponsored gifts). Coffee throughout the day, and lunch is also included.
What airport should I fly into?
It’s easy to get to NYC — fly into JFK, La Guardia, or Newark airports.
How can I connect with fellow attendees?
The best way to connect with fellow attendees is the official Alt Summit 2022 app, which will be available for download soon! On the app you can find a ton of information about the conference and speakers and schedule — as well as connect directly with attendees and sponsors.
In the meantime, you can connect with the entire Alt Summit community by joining our Facebook group.
What’s your refund policy?
Tickets are not refundable. You can transfer your ticket until August 15 for a transfer fee of $50 payable to Alt Summit. No transfers will be given after August 15. If you are unable to attend for any reason, we are unable to transfer your ticket to a future event. If this event is rescheduled for reasons beyond our control, your ticket will be transferred to the rescheduled event.
Do I need to have my I.D. with me?
Yes, we will need a government issued form of ID to check you into the conference.
How can I find out more details about the conference?
Every year we make announcements leading up to the conference via our newsletter — announcements like keynote speakers, schedule descriptions, party themes, participating sponsors and more. If you’re not already subscribed, you can do that here.
Will you be giving away tickets through contests or scholarship programs?
Yes, we will. But keep in mind that these types of tickets are extremely limited. Watch our newsletter for announcements about contests or scholarships.
How can I apply to be a speaker?
Because it’s a one-day event, we won’t be holding an Open Call for Speakers. But if there are particular topics we need covered, we will be sure to put an announcement in the newsletter.
Will Alt return to Palm Springs?
In 2023, we are making tentative plans to return to Palm Springs for our flagship multi-day conference. We have not decided on dates and venues.
How many business cards should I bring?
Business cards are not required, but if you want to connect with others at Alt, they are a great way to do so. Plan on bringing about 150 cards. When you get to the conference, you can find the business card wall and add yours.
How do I join the Facebook group?
You can request to join the Altitude Summit Community Facebook Group here where you can meet other attendees and creatives, find a roommate, ask for advice, and share what you’re working on. Be aware that Facebook only permits individuals to join groups; we are unable to add your Facebook page.
How do I become a sponsor?
Alt Summit has the best sponsors. They come to connect with the amazing content creators in attendance and they’re ready to collaborate and make business deals. If you think your company would be a great fit, please email:
I’m not a sponsor, but my company wants to throw a party or dinner for attendees during the conference. Is that okay?
Actually, that’s a big no. That would be considered Outboarding. Alt Summit doesn’t allow Suitcasing, Outboarding or Partial Outboarding. And participating in any of those activities could mean your conference registration is revoked, and that you may not be able to participate in future events.
In more official terms: 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.
Not sure what “suitcasing” or “outboarding” means? Want more details? You can see our full brand policy here.
Can I get a media/press pass for Alt Summit?
Due to high demand, media passes are limited in number and are pre-reserved for commercial news outlets. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be considered.
