Affiliate Summit has been providing “Networking and Education” for the affiliate marketing industry since 2003 from Austin (where co-founder Shawn Collins lives) to Orlando (where Shawn’s partner in crime, Missy Ward lives). And I’m proud to say that I’ve been learning, networking and supporting them all along the way. In fact, I’ve been to every East, West and Central Summit event held thus far which has earned me the “20+” button as seen on my last badge:
I love how the show has grown – from 200 some attendees at the first event (where I met some great friends) to the now 5000+ attendee events. I will never forget when I volunteered to work at the registration table in 2006 with a pregnant-Missy (I can’t believe Chase is 8 already), and they provided us workers with AS embroidered polo shirts. All of the women’s shirts were spoken for, so I proudly sported a man’s polo. Looking at photos later, it was discovered that Corey Newhouse had been wearing MY polos, and I his!
I honestly owe the majority of my success thus far to attending the Affiliate Summit conferences. From the colleagues I’ve met to the things I’ve learned and experienced, I thank Missy and Shawn (and Amy and everyone else behind the scenes now) for all the hard work and dedication they put into each and every show. I plan to keep attending their events as long as I’m able. See you all in Vegas in January? Register here now.
