Affiliate Summit East 2009 Is Coming….Are You?

Posted by Ad Hustler | Posted in Doing Business, Meetin' Mad Peeps | Posted on 30-06-2009

Affiliate Summit 2009 is quickly approaching on August 9-11, 2009.  If you are involved with the affiliate marketing industry and don’t know what Affiliate Summit is you must have been sleeping.  Affiliate Summit is the PREMIER affiliate marketing conference in the U.S.  I can already hear some of newbies asking yourself this question:

If affiliate marketing is an internet based business why do I have to waste my time going to a conference?

OH BOY!  Affiliate marketing is just like any other industry.  You need connections.  Affiliate Summit provides a conference that tons of industry folks attend, making it easy to make new connections, friends & business partners.

This years Affiliate Summit East 2009 is taking place in NYC on The Avenue of The Americas at The Hilton.  This is the same hotel that Ad:Tech has taken place at for many years.

If you have not been to an Affiliate Summit yet here are some tips:

  • If you are the educational type, like to hear lectures and enjoy hearing from experts in the field, get a full pass.  If you could barely make it through high school because of your inability to sit in a class just get the silver pass which enables you to enter the meet market & conference hall.
  • Stay in the hotel at the conference or one in very close proximity.  It makes it easier to meet up with people.
  • Set some meetings before hand.  If their is an affiliate manager you want to meet or another affiliate you want to share a meal with, set up the meeting berfore hand.  Affiliate Summit can get hectic and people do book meetings way before.
  • RSVP to all parties before you get there.  Typically a few weeks before Summit you start seeing the parties being announced with online RSVPs.  Do yourself a favor and just RSVP to all of them.
  • Last but not least.  Affiliate Summit as well as FeedFront magazine is run by 2 really cool people.  Shawn Collins & Missy Ward.  Say hello to them at the show and let them know how much you appreciate what they do for this industry.

So….Are you going to attend?  Post a Comment!

Please Note: I do receive a Press Pass to Affiliate Summit which get’s me in for free however, all statements and thoughts are my own opinions.

  1. adhustler,

    Been reading your blog for long time. Pretty straight forward and no bull shit. My time well spent.

    Just want to say thanks. Maybe get a chance to buy you a beer or two at ASE.

  2. Hey man. This will be my first Affiliate Summit. Really looking forward to it. Yeah, I thought about staying with friends in NYC but I realized the importance of being close to the convention as you mentioned. Hopefully I can meet you there.

  3. @George & Jason – I would be more then happy to meet with everyone. We will figure it out a little closer to the event. I’ll do a meetup post or something :)

  4. Thank you so much for the kind words and for your contribution to FeedFront! See you in August.

  5. Will be there too, looking forward to this fo sho. would be interested in a follow-up post in how to make the most of a silver pass :)

  6. I’ll of course be there, got my pass right after ASW ;)

  7. hoping to finally meet yah at the show. see yah at the summit

  8. Yeah I will be there.

    I agree with you about the hotel. Nothing worse than a bag full of freebies that you then have to take with you. I am sure you wouldn’t want your swag bag to end up in some strip club at Times Square and letting a stripper read all your notes on makingmoniesonline.

    Look forward to catching up with you and having a few cocktails, maybe some chicken etc…

  9. @Jim – Not sure why but the chicken part made me laugh.

  10. @Bryn – It’s gonna be fun times bro.

  11. I will be attending ASE and look forward to it, I used to attend every one they had but over past year had to miss them so look forward to getting back in the mix.
