Schedule Terminology

Ideas Festival

  • In these 45 minute Ted Talk style sessions, our Idea Festival speaker(s) will inspire and challenge attendees 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

  • 45 minute round table problem solving discussions lead by an ALTA Facilitator. The topics and discussions stem from the industry challenge presented in the correlating Ideas Festival.

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 attending a conference, 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.
