I’ll be leaving for Affiliate Summit in a couple hours now. What new connections and ideas will I return with this time? Be sure to check back often as I am blogging the whole event while I’m there and will be posting a lot of pictures. Once I arrive I will hit up the "Affiliate Meet Market" a meet up with some old friends and see some of the latest exhibitors. Then later tonight is the "ABestWeb & ShareASale "Under the Stars" Party" which should be pretty cool! I’ve known Brian from Shareasale since he started the network a few years ago. He is now known for having the best opening Affiliate Summit parties.
If you are interested, you can still take a look at the agenda for the event. I’m speaking in one of the networking sessions on the last day. Looking forward to meeting up with some new people and coming back with a ton of new business cards and deals!
Something strange I’ve noticed over the past few years is how something big in the media always tends to happen while at Affiliate Summit events… The two that come to mind was last year at the World Cup when Zidane headbutt Materazzi in the final game. The amazing part is… out of the whole World Cup, I only watch 20 mins or so… and it was this game. My father and I had just went up to the hotel room after a few sessions and happened to turn the game on. The other weird event was the Michael Jackson trial. The trial itself went on for years it seemed, but the day he was found "Not Guilty"… my father and I happened to be in the hotel room with the TV when it happened live.
Let’s see if anything strange happens this time…
