Networking at Affiliate Summit West AffiliateDinner

Yesterday Reena and I arrived in Las Vegas for the start of Affiliate Summit West 2008. Once arriving at the Rio, we wee anxious to get to our room. I was hoping to get an upgrade, so they put me in a 1,600 ft suite! We went up to the room and it was like a flashback to the 80s! The size of the room was awesomely huge (but unnecessary), and it scaled the whole corner of the building. Unfortunately the bed and furniture were less than comfortable. We went back downstairs to to get another room, they then set us up with the same suite, but this time on the 38th floor. Quite frustrated, we just went to the VIP check-in and told them situation. We were finally issued a smaller renovated suite in their new tower… and everything is awesome now!

Now that we were all settled in, we were anxiously awaiting the Affiliate Dinner later that night. The guest of honor was “Brian Littleton” from Shareasale… so he was in for a roasting. In addition to taking several hits for his obsession with sweater vests, many of his close friends took time to celebrate and toast Brian, including a collection of funny videos from his staff and Shawn Collins and Missy Ward. The event was put together and hosted by Brook and Forest Schaaf. If was the first networking session for Affiliate Summit, so it was great to finally meet up with a few friends.

While at the Affiliate Dinner I was also able to meet up with Ian Fernando, Andrew Wee, the girls from NeverBlueAds and many more.

  1. Zac,

    Have you stayed at the Wynn? ML stayed there and it was absolutely gorgeous. The bed was extremely comfortable. I usually go home with a sore back after staying in a hotel but not this time. The staff was very nice and helpful. I asked a bellman for directions to get to the shopping area down the road. He told me if I got lost to call him and he would send a limo to pick me up. I thought that was really cool! The VIP guests at the Wynn are driven around in a Rolls-Royce. They had three of them sitting there outside of the Tower Suites.
