Affiliate Summit West 2012 Begins

Internet marketing event, Affiliate Summit West 2012 begins tomorrow, January 8 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV. As I went through the photos I took at ASW11 I was reminded at how impressed I was at how much Affiliate Summit had grown since my last visit in 2008. If there is any doubt about the success of this event, consider that this is the 19th consecutive show that they have sold out due to capacity. That is pretty impressive. Unfortunately, I committed to something that fell through, so I was too late to try and get out to Las Vegas.

For those of you that are attending, I am going to suggest that you attempt to obtain a pass to the Affiliate Ball, which will be held at the Crown Theater in the Rio. It is starring hip-hop artist, Nelly and it is put on by Darren Blatt. I have known Darren for many years and he always puts on a great party. I highly recommend attending if you can manage it. In fact, if someone contacted me and said they wanted me to cover this party for them, I would fly to Las Vegas immediately. His parties are that good.

For those of you that thought ahead and got passes for ASW12, enjoy your show. I will do my best to be there next year. Continue reading

Affiliate Summit West 2011 Review

This is my review of the Internet marketing event known as Affiliate Summit West 2011, AKA ASW11. Affiliate Summit West was held January 9-11, 2011 at the Wynn in Las Vegas, NV. Due to scheduling conflicts, I had not attended Affiliate Summit since 2008 when it was held at the Rio. I was looking forward to this show to see how much things had changed over the last few years. Besides, in 2008 I only spent one day there and never ventured beyond the exhibit hall and a suite party.

I usually cover B2B trade shows where I already know a large percentage of the participants, or they at least know who I am. As a result, my coverage is usually limited to photos with a review based on my observations. When I obtained my press credentials for ASW11, I made a mental note to try and look at this through a “reporter’s” eyes, which resulted in my entering deeper conversations with some attendees and exhibitors. This review will take some of those conversations into consideration.

The Venue

It is kind of funny, but I have a condo that is in the shadow of the Wynn. Although I watched it being built, and I often wondered what it was like inside, I had never ventured down the street to check it out. Now I had my excuse. As it turned out, everything I had to do at the Wynn was in one small corner of the resort. I think I saw the casino once, but I never ventured into it. We did walk down to La Cave to grab some lunch on Monday and were pleased with our choices. Continue reading

Photos from Tuesday at ASW11

Tuesday was the last day of the Internet marketing event, Affiliate Summit West 2011. Since the Affiliate Ball was held the prior evening, I was not surprised to see what seemed to be fewer people at the morning sessions and in the exhibit hall. Since it was my sixth day in Las Vegas I had to make it a short day, so things may have picked up in the afternoon. I did have the opportunity to talk with a few people that had never attended Affiliate Summit before, and other than one exhibitor that must have been having a bad day, the responses were that this was a great show for the first time visitor as well as the veterans.
