ASE09

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.

Affiliate Summit East 2009 took place at the New York Hilton on August 9-11, 2009.

Peter Shankman, founder of HARO, was that keynote on Day 3 of the conference.

If you were not able to attend the conference, (or were unable to wake up in time for the keynote) here's what you missed.

Peter Shankman was not only spot on when it came to the material he spoke about, but he was filled with some lively jokes that made me remember the good old '80's, when things were a lot more simple.

The next Affiliate Summit Conference & Trade Show takes place in Las Vegas, at the Rio Hotel on January 17-29, 2010.

I've gotten a lot of requests over the last week to sum up the party's that I know are taking place during Affiliate Summit East 2009. It's taken me a while to get my arms around them all, but here's what I got so far…

If you're having a party and it's not listed here, it's because I don't know about it 🙂 Please send me an email and I'll be happy to add it.

Please note: If you're looking for an invite to something that says “By Invitation Only”, I recommend you contact the company directly because I don't have any more information other than what I've indicated above.


Affiliate Summit East 2009 is on schedule to sell out by Friday, July 31, 2009, based on sales patterns of past Affiliate Summits.

Shawn Collins announced that as of yesterday, there were 325 registration slots remaining.

Well, as of this morning, there are now only 272 seats left.

If you're planning on attending the conference, I wouldn't delay registering any longer. Having been through many Affiliate Summit sell-outs before, it isn't pretty. The wait list typically does not clear ahead of time and we can not guarantee that you will be able to get into the conference if you just show up.

The keynote speaker for Monday, August 10 is Chris Brogan, President of New Marketing Labs, and the keynote for Tuesday, August 11 will be Peter Shankman, founder and CEO of The Geek Factory.

This time around, Affiliate Summit will feature the largest exhibit hall and Meet Market of all of the Affiliate Summit East shows, with over 230 booths and tables to swing by.

There are a limited number of sponsorships still available, though all exhibitor booths are sold out.
