Hi Everyone! I’m Nicole, Annette’s blog manager, and today I’m sharing our awesome, whirlwind trip to ALT Summit. A few weeks ago, I hopped on a plane and flew across the country from chilly Atlanta to sunny Palm Springs to meet Annette for a few days at the conference.
You might remember that we attended last year, and after having a fantastic time and learning a ton, we knew we had to get back for the 2017 conference. This year’s ALT was held in Palm Springs at the Instagram-worthy Saguaro hotel. You’ve probably seen this hotel in photos; it’s an old motel that’s been modernized and painted punchy colors. While Annette and I both agreed that the hotel wasn’t really our style, it made for some gorgeous photos.
The conference is attended by over 500 women from all over the world and features speakers from some of the best in the blog world. We rubbed shoulders with the likes of Darcy Miller (aka Martha’s wedding expert…yes, THE Martha), and heard from speakers like Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day, Susan Peterson from Freshly Picked, and the husband-wife duo behind Young House Love. Many of the speakers made a point to share and be vulnerable with their stories which was inspiring and interesting.
One of the best parts of ALT summit is being surrounded by like-minded women who focus on community over competition. We met some new friends and spent our days mingling with bloggers, photographers, stylists, and authors who are just as driven and business-minded as we are. It was such an empowering atmosphere!
Of course, we also did a little exploring around Palm Springs. It was such a funky town with a lot of visual interest, and the landscape was incredible.
We soaked up as much sun and knowledge as we could, and we’re both looking forward to implementing some of the things we learned at ALT summit here on the blog. If you’ve ever considered attending ALT, don’t hesitate to go. Tickets usually go on sale in the fall, and this year, it sold out in 24 hours!
If you were at ALT this year, we’d love for you to say hello, and if not, let us know if you have any questions about what we learned. We’d love to chat more!
