Big announcement! Have you heard about Alt? It’s short for Altitude Design Summit. And it’s awesome x 10.

The basics:

-It’s the first conference geared specifically to design & lifestyle bloggers, trend & shopping sites — and the companies that want to connect with them. All the social media/new media people who want to get together, talk shop and love on design for a weekend. Great info for design peeps and great info for companies with design-minded products or design-minded clients that want to connect with the design-blog-world.

-It’s happening January 21-23, in Salt Lake City, during the first weekend of the Sundance Film Festival. (Celebrity spotting! World-class skiing!)

Doesn’t that sound perfect? I’m especially excited because Kirtsy is in charge of putting together the conference programming. The speakers. The topics. The keynotes. The break-out sessions. Which is basically the funnest assignment ever. We made the formal announcement about
Alt in the Kirtsy newsletter this morning and the response has been tremendous. My inbox is filling up with speaker suggestions and great ideas for topics. (Speaking of which, a lot of it is still hush-hush, but the speaker list so far is out-of-sight-fantastic.)

If you have thoughts/ideas/suggestions about Alt, I’d love to hear them. Please send me an email at:
