Shawn Collins Scores Perfect AttendanceShawn Collins, Co-Founder of Affiliate Summit is currently at the South Austin Trailer Park and Eatery for Performance Marketing Summit Austin 2014.

About Affiliate Summit, Inc.

In 2003, Shawn and I founded Affiliate Summit for the purpose of providing educational sessions on the latest industry issues and fostering a productive networking environment for affiliate marketers.

Since then, the Affiliate Summit Inc. brand has grown to include Performance Marketing Summit, FeedFront Magazine, GeekCast.fmAffStat.com and ReveNews.com.

The Big “25”

I'm not sure if Shawn realizes this yet or not, but today is special for two reasons.

First, today marks Affiliate Summit Inc's 25th event. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

Additionally, although it pains me to say this, today I relinquish my “Affiliate Summit Inc. Event Perfect Attendance” crown to Shawn Collins. (Yep, I'm in Orlando right now while Shawn is managing the Performance Marketing Summit event.)

Affiliate Summit 20+'ers

Affiliate Summit 20+ VeteransBack at Affiliate Summit West 2013, we instituted the distribution of these buttons to the attendees that display the number of shows that they've attended.

We didn't realize at the time that if you accidentally give Affiliate Summit veterans the incorrect button, they would not be happy… and they will tell you so.

I could not have been more happy to talk to anyone at that show who cared enough to complain about it.

Many explained that these buttons were sort of a “badge of honor”.  And today, I totally get that because I feel bummed that I blew up my perfect attendance record.

Luckily, I'm not alone in today's de-throning.

Brian Littleton, CEO of ShareASale has been to every Affiliate Summit Inc. event since 2003. Today he lost his reign as well.

Hats off to you, Shawn. Looks like we may need to get a “Perfect Attendance” button, specially made for you.
