Affiliate Summit East 2016
Affiliate Summit East 2016 took place at the Marriott Marquis in New York City from July 31st to August 2nd. Affiliate Summit is the premier conference for affiliate marketing, bringing over 6000 attendees to each show. Each summer in New York and each winter in Las Vegas, affiliates, networks, vendors, agencies, and solution providers enjoy 3 days of education, networking, and fun.
On the Saturday before the conference, Affiliate Summit co-founders Missy Ward & Shawn Collins took the conference speakers on a champagne brunch cruise, disembarking from Pier 40 around noon and traveling down the Hudson River to offer some great views of the Statue of Liberty.
On Sunday, the conference began with First Timers Orientation and a group of concurrent sessions. At noon, the fabled Meet Market opened, which is a frenzy of hundreds of companies with 2′ x 6′ tables for networking, meeting, and deal-creating.
On Monday, the exhibition hall opened, full of booths featuring affiliate networks, outsourced affiliate managers, vendors, agencies, and technology & solution providers.
