Affiliate Summit East 2013 Fast Approaching
Affiliate Summit East 2013 is August 18-20 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. The sold out conference includes educational sessions and focuses on networking and hot trends in affiliate marketing. Early check in is on Saturday evening from 4 to 8 p.m.
Educational sessions include latest industry issues and trends as well as information from experts in affiliate marketing. Topics include authority blogs, marketing campaigns, liability issues, mobile click to call, and landing pages and FTC compliance, among many others. The exhibit hall will be filled with affiliates, vendors, merchants, and networks for face to face marketing. I went to both the Affiliate Summit conferences in 2011 but couldn’t convince my wife to go to Philly this time. Hopefully Nevada in the West 2014.
Keynote speakers include Rae Hoffman, CEO of Pushfire; Dr. Randal Pinket, CEO of BCT Partners; and Wil Reynolds, founder of SEER Interactive. Other confirmed speakers on the agenda include Brian Marcus of eBay, Inc., Lindsay Johnson of Yahoo, and David Lewis of Shopzilla, just to name a few. Ask the Experts Monday night from 5 to 6 p.m. will have a networking and education session dedicated to answering questions and conducting chats in the specialty topic area of each hand picked expert.
To unwind, there will be two major parties. The Affiliate Nation Party on August 19 at Lit Ultrabar will have open bar all night and a performance by Havana brown. The official party of the Affiliate Summit is the Affiliate Ball, which starts at 9 p.m. at the Whisper Club on August 19. There will be a live performance by Busta Rhymes and special surprise guest artists. Pretty cool.
This is a great way to connect with other networks and affiliates worldwide. Hundreds of companies have registered to attend. It will definitely be a well organized and informative three days. It promises to be energetic and inspiring as well. This year they are also offering video only conferences passes, might be something to get if you didn’t get a pass already.
