Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

We’ve gone through the feedback from Affiliate Summit East 2016, and the most popular city, by an overwhelming percentage, was New York City.

That means Affiliate Summit East 2017 will be back in NYC on July 30 – August 1, 2017.

New York City

We’re going to be returning to the New York Marriott Marquis for Affiliate Summit East 2017.

After going through the feedback from this past August, the New York Marriott Marquis got high marks (outside of the sometimes delayed elevators).

Hotel rooms at the special Affiliate Summit group rate will be available soon to book at the New York Marriott Marquis.

See the history of Affiliate Summit for the history of the premier affiliate marketing conference.
