Schedule Terminology

Zone Seating

  • Participants are placed into four different zones at the beginning of each Ideas Festival. The zones are pre-determined by the participants answers to ALTA SPRINGBOARD’s pre-event survey.

Ideas Festival

  • In this Ted Talk style format, our Idea Festival speaker(s) will inspire and challenge participants to think about a current industry challenge or opportunity in new ways. The challenges presented are the biggest issues and/or opportunities facing the title insurance and settlement industry today.

Knowledge Communities

  • Round table problem solving discussions lead by a facilitator. The topics and discussions stem from the industry challenge presented in the correlating Ideas Festival.

Recap & Results

  • The best ideas and discussions from the Knowledge Communities will be shared with all participants on the main stage by the facilitators and Ideas Festival speakers. 

Career Advancement Talks

  • The education offered in these 30-minute talks are all focused on an individual’s professional growth.


  • For some conference goers, there is nothing more stressful than the idea of networking. Many would rather pull out their smartphones and check their emails than take the risk of approaching a stranger to introduce themselves or get stuck in the wrong conversation. However, when asked, many people cite networking as their number one reason for coming to conferences, so avoiding networking is not the solution. Braindates are about sharing knowledge. They are 30-minute one-on-one conversations or 45-minute group discussions that you book with other participants while you’re at ALTA SPRINGBOARD.
