It’s crazy to think about the world of affiliate marketing and how it quickly became a multi-billion dollar industry out of nowhere. We can probably thank Amazon.com and the launch of their associate’s program back in the late 90s for introducing the concept ofg affiliate marketing to so many individuals, brands, and businesses looking to generate leads online. After all, it’s pretty safe to say that Amazon wouldn’t be the massive success story they are today without the affiliate marketing component within their own business.
At the same time, affiliate marketing focused conferences have also helped fuel the industry as well. While there are several ‘internet marketing’ conferences held across the country monthly, the few ‘affiliate marketing’ targeted events have really helped fuel the industry’s growth, while also allowing others to connect with experts, brands and big name businesses who also rely on affiliate marketing.
With all of that being said, new affiliate marketing conferences are happening in new locations around the world more often than you think — with the latest being Moscow Affiliate Conference 2017 at the end of March. The United States has always been at the forefront of technology and online marketing, but it’s great to see affiliate marketing conferences now happening around the world and giving everyone the opportunity to experience once first hand.
Moscow Affiliate 2017 Conference by Leadbit
This is the inaugural event for the Moscow Affiliate Conference, and it’s being held in the Russian capital city of Moscow, which is sure to grab a lot of interest and boost attendance. As with most conferences, sponsors and contributing partners always help with funding and getting the word out. In the case of this conference, the main sponsor and event holder is Leadbit Group — who are also known for their MediaVenus native advertising network, the FBilling mobile-focused affiliate network, and the MostBet betting company. Leadbit is also its own international affiliate network.
In addition to Leadbit Group, the event is also being promoted and funded through StackThatMoney — “the world’s largest premium affiliate marketing forum.” I’ve already done plenty of write ups about STM over the years, and they’ve grown into quite the resource and training ground for some of the top affiliate marketers in the world today, with over 180,000 posts, guides and case studies on the site.
With the combined forces of Leadbit and STM to help bring attention and awareness to the event, I’m sure they will have an amazing kick-off to the conference, and many more in the years to come. The Moscow Affiliate Conference is scheduled to take place on March 30, 2017, and it is dedicated to the world of affiliate marketing and driving leads through a commission based platform. And while the event is being held in Russia, the conference and it’s material will be covering international topics, guides and methods for all attendees to take advantage of.
Who Else Can You Meet at Moscow Affiliate Conference?
While it’s always great to attend a conference for its speakers and content, you always want to make some new connection and see familiar faces as well. This shouldn’t be a problem, as some of the most well-known names in advertising and direct response will have representation at the conference as well.
If you are even only slightly active in the world of affiliate marketing, you will likely recognize several of the brand names and logos below. Attend Moscow Affiliate Conference and are likely to run into team members from AdsBridge, MGID, ClickDeader, CPAMatica, YeahMobi and many more advertisers, brands and affiliate marketers.
As mentioned earlier, new conferences are popping up all the time, but most of them don’t have the brand exposure and advertisers that Moscow Affiliate Conference has been able to secure in just their first event. This is a great site to see, which also signals for improved growth and legitimacy in years to come.
What Can You Expect from MAC2017?
The main focus of content and material to be covered at Moscow Affiliate Conference is affiliate marketing and how to grow a successful business online through referral marketing. Speakers will be found in the conference hall, while there will also be sponsor booths (exhibit hall), meet markets and meeting lounges throughout the event location. You can see a full map layout of the conference location below.
In addition to all of the events and activities taking place during the event, there will be plenty of after parties and networking opportunities as well. You can see all of the latest show details, speaker information and after parties listed on the main MAC2017 website.
The Cost to Attend Moscow Affiliate Conference is FREE!
At the beginning of the article, I mentioned the importance of finding great sponsors and companies to partner with to launch a successful conference or event. It takes a lot of time, money and resources to bring in speakers, rent out conference space, provide food and everything else that goes on behind the scenes. At most conferences, this is what leads up to the high-ticket price you are likely going to have to pay if you want to attend — however, the price to attend Moscow Affiliate Conference 2017, is FREE!
This is all thanks in part to the advertising packages for sponsors and making the event even possible — which is even more of a reason for any attendees to go out of their way and speak with all exhibitors and hit as many booths as possible.
From the looks of everything, if you live anywhere near Russia, it’s a great opportunity to connect with some of the biggest names in affiliate marketing, while also being after to attend such a conference first-hand. For anyone outside of the country, it’s simply a great excuse to make the trip. The MAC2017 website also has information on getting a visa should you need one — otherwise you can proceed to the sign-up form on the site and get yourself registered for Moscow Affiliate Conference 2017!
