Attending ALT-C for the first time?

If you are attending ALT's annual conference for the first time, here are a few tips on getting the most out of your days:

  • If you are arriving on Monday, attend a pre-conference workshop and the pre-conference reception. That is the best way to meet other delegates and start networking;
  • Attend the Welcome to ALT-C/Explore ALT session on Tuesday morning and come and meet some ALT Members at the ALT stand;
  • Throughout the conference, the staff at the Helpdesk are there to assist you and can provide information and maps of the campus and local area;
  • Use Crowdvine to start networking with other delegates and express an interest in sessions.
