The Conference is just a month away! Got your plane tickets and your hotel room lined up? Great!  There is a lot jammed into just three days.  Here’s our pre-event Affiliate Summit East checklist to help you get the most out of your ‘summer in the city”.

Before You Go

Pack Smart – It’s New York in Summer – so it’s hot! Pack accordingly. Light clothes, shades, and comfy shoes.  One rule that always applies in NYC, no matter the weather.  Pack something black.  Black is the official NYC uniform.

Getting around – Taking cabs? Consider downloading the Juno app – it’s a local rideshare alternative to Uber or a Yellow Cab – they’re looking to gain market share and prices are super competitive.  Of course, as a native New Yorker, I can safely say the fastest way around town is the Subway.

Business Cards: Pack a lot. Affiliate Summit East like most, conferences,  is all about the schmooze.  You can’t have too many.

Conference Planning

Download the App: Plenty of attendees are already connecting on the  Affiliate Summit East 2017 Mobile App to see who’s coming and set up meetings! Download it now and start saying hi! (iOS | Android | Desktop)

Make a plan:  Look over the conference schedule.  As veteran conference goers – some of us can get complacent.  The result – missing out on a great session or Demo you only hear about after the fact at one of the parties.   Avoid the FOMO and take a few minutes before you head out to look over the schedule and make a plan. And don’t miss the 3 keynote sessions: Joe Theismann (July 30), Larry Kim (July 31), and JB Glossinger (August 1)

Networking Lounge and VIP Cafe: While the Exhibit Hall doesn’t open till the 31st – you can take advantage of the Lounge for meetings and networking.  It’s open 8:00 am – 6:00 pm in the Shubert Complex – 6th Floor

Meet market: The Meet Market is a showcase featuring affiliate programs, networks, and vendors. Each exhibitor table is a meeting spot for teaching, learning, closing deals, creating partnerships and finding new opportunities.  Open 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm in the Westside Ballroom – 5th Floor.
