2021 is another year of firsts for ALTA: as the pandemic continues, we are programming an exciting mixed-presence conference for our community. Virtual and in-person options will allow attendees to join us this fall in the way that makes sense for them: read more about what to expect here. You’ve told us how important it is that the conference remain financially accessible, especially given the challenges of the past year; in response, we have brought down prices across the board for this year and are offering pay-what-you-can options. 

Our Standard Registration rates are listed in the middle column below. For those who are not in a position to pay the standard rate, there is the option of a $50 Reduced Rate. If you are able to pay more, please consider registering at the Pay-it-Forward Rates, which offset costs for others and help make the conference more accessible for everyone. 

We’ve created a few ways for registrants to receive discounts: register for the Combo (both Virtual & In-Person Conferences), and automatically receive a workshop & pitch sessions, at no extra charge. Or, register for the Virtual Conference at the Pay-It-Forward rate, and automatically receive a virtual workshop & pitch sessions at no extra charge, if you register before August 31.

One thing hasn’t changed: ALTA members still receive discounted registration. Become an ALTA member today for 20% off registration, the ability to propose roundtables and seminars, and other benefits. Read more and join here. And to the extent that you are able, please give to ensure that ALTA can continue its work. 

Important Dates:
July 12: Registration opens
August 31: Registration for workshops & pitch sessions closes
October 18: In-person registration closes

Complimentary Registration: For those who are unable to pay the reduced rate above, there are two opportunities for complimentary registration: as last year, we have a lottery for a limited number of complimentary registrations designated for those with financial hardship or who come from communities traditionally underrepresented at ALTA.
