Wow – what a show! It always is and I was glad that Affiliate Summit East was back in NYC.
I got a ton out of the show as usual both on and off the conference floor. ASE was held at the Marriott Marquis this year and I actually liked the location of the venue better than the Hilton, because it was easier to get to places in downtown. Although, I’m not a fan of being in Time Square, I’m sure everyone who was visiting appreciated the chance to be surround by all the bright lights.
Okay well instead of bore you with writing paragraphs about what I did, here are some pictures from the show:
And that was Affiliate Summit East 2014 in a nutshell. I got to reconnect with great friends in the industry as well as got taken out by a few of the affiliate networks that I work closely with (can’t complain about getting to check out new fancy restaurants in NYC). I also picked up a lot just by walking around the floor and connecting with my AMs on the floor who told me what was currently crushing it – I immediately got the best offers from them and put their advice to use after the show.
Once again, Affiliate Summit did not disappoint. This is the one show that I never miss and I always tell anyone starting out as an affiliate or anyone putting together an affiliate program to make sure they attend the show. It’s also AWESOME to see how it’s one big family and to see how everyone I met in 2008-2009 has grown into extremely successful affiliates – and ALL of them attend the show no matter what. Just goes to show you the power of surrounding yourself with highly successful and ambitious people. I can’t wait to grow my business after this show and am really excited to attend Affiliate Summit West 2015 in Las Vegas, which will probably be my 11th show!
Do yourself a favor and get your pass as soon as they have the early bird passes out! Don’t miss out – see you at the next one!
